    On again. Off again. On again. Off again. When last we heard intel on the much-rumored and much-lusted-for mid-engine Audi R5 (rendered above and proposed baby brother to the R8), the project was dead... done... kaput. Now the often extremely well connected Georg Kacher has published his latest...

    More bad news for proponents of radical growth of Audi's sports car lineup - the proposed "little brother to the Audi R8" has been cancelled according to a highly placed source at Audi AG. Apparently when company directors looked into the feasibility it was determined that there just wasn't...

    In case you missed it we ran all of the Audi PR text materials earlier this evening right as the car was launched. We've finally had a chance to get back to the hotel room here in Geneva and format/upload all of the other remaining release photography. Below is a link to both the press release...

    We're getting close to the Geneva Auto Show. In case you'd seen the photo blasts of the new Audi RS 4 and the TT RS plus and hadn't done the math, it's messaging time in these weeks ahead of the main event that first week of March. It's always a game to guess which reveals will come ahead of...

    As the new MQB-based Audi A3 moves toward its Geneva Motor Show debut, miles are still be ing logged on A3 test mules. This particular one, practically undisguised with the exception of some masking around the lighting elements, was caught driving down public roads in Spain. Thanks Kiky for the...

    As most Audi fans are aware, a new generation of A3 will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Those in the know also probably know that the A3 and other Audi models with transverse engines like the TT and eventually the A1 will move to a new modular transverse matrix dubbed MQB. If MQB...

    Earlier today we posted a story about leaked Audi Geneva Motor Show plans though that story had the RS 4 in the headline. Another notable model from the leaked document that confirmed this news (seen below) also confirms information about the expected launch of the new A3 (seen in spy photos...

    Near as we can tell, what you see here are the first known photos of a TT test mule. The car, obviously wearing bodywork of the current car, was caught testing in Spain albeit from a distance and shot on 1900s era camera phone judging on the graininess. Still, the shots (and there are many so...

    Just one year after the debut of the A3 Concept that revealed Audi's plans for an A3 sedan, Ingolstadt will launch the first production version (a 3-door) of the all-new A3, again at the Geneva Motor Show. The new A3 will set new standards for Audi's range of small sub-A4 cars, adopting many of...

    Okay, we'll admit we may be making something out of nothing here but you never know and what you see here is intriguing enough that we thought we should point it out. We've just published the news story about Wolfgang Egger taking over as Audi brand design chief and noticed Audi AG published a...

    Given the two will share platform components, it's not been much of a surprise that Porsche continues to test prototypes of their upcoming Cajun crossover with Audi Q5 bodies. The Audi Q5 is in production and the site of a Q5 on public roads isn't exactly something special. Perhaps these mules...

    Audi's all-new next-generation a3 continues its testing as it marches toward its 2012 debut and Autobild Magazine has run a story including many of the photos they've published thus far of mules making their rounds. Case in point is the 3-door above seen hot weather testing in the States. Check...

    Another next-gen A3-based mule has been spotted hot-weather testing in Death Valley this week and a set of photos of the car has been published over on WorldCarFans. That it's a next-gen A3 3-door body is obvious, but further deduction of its S3 configuration is defined by the car's fascia (very...
