Audi R5: Audi’s next compact, gasoline-powered, mid-engine, two-seat sports car

Audi R5

Stop what you are doing now and read on about the Audi R5, Audi’s next compact, gasoline-powered, mid-engine, two-seat sports car. A must read!

Audi would get a coupe and a spyder version powered by the 350bhp TTRS engine. VW would stick to the roadster equipped with a 1.8-liter TFSI unit good for between 160 and 210bhp. Porsche could offer a spyder, a coupe, and perhaps even a speedster. The engine of choice is in this case a brand-new turbocharged 2.0 to 2.7-liter flat four rated at 230 to 300 hp. The same powerplant over time also would be offered in the Boxster, Cayman and in a new, entry-level lightweight 911 SC.
