Known internally as A9, the high-end four-seater gets a bespoke exterior and an evolution of the pace-setting A8 interior. To be built in Neckarsulm alongside the saloon and the R8, the A9 could appear as early as 2014 in coupe form.
Structurally, the sleek A9 is said to be eye-catching according to sources who’ve seen the initial design sketches. A soft-top conversion is in the plan, which should hit the market in 2015, six months before the next-gen Mercedes CL cabriolet.
Pricewise, the new Audi A9 will be positioned above the BMW 6-series but below the CL.
