Audi RS4: Not coming to the US?

Audi RS4

Unfortunately it looks like the recently spotted Audi RS4 will not make it to the US.

After seeing the tempting spy shots earlier this week, we were eagerly looking forward to Audi’s latest midsize RS model. But all is for naught, as Audi PR chief Jeff Kuhlman has said there’s no plan to bring the RS4 to the U.S.

Why, you ask? Because Audi doesn’t want to spoil the RS image in the U.S. Err, huh? TT RS and RS5 are OK, but put all that performance (and more) in a more practical package, and it’s somehow over-extending the brand? We do not follow.
