A unique balance of price, performance, and luxury, the RS4 manages to carve out a unique niche in the tightly competitive luxury performance marketplace. Considering it’s based on a seven year old platform, the RS4 is a very impressive machine, however it has to make way for the new model based on Audi’s advanced MLP platform.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard rumors of RS4 production ending, however our friends at Autoblog.nl confirmed the story directly with Audi officials.
The sedan will be first to go, with the Avant to follow this year and the Cabrio to see its end sometime in 2008. Stocks of the sedan and Avant are expected to last until the end of December, but no longer.
