Audi will decide about the production of the Audi quattro concept in September. Crossing fingers!

The future of the Audi Quattro Concept will not be decided until the eve of the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. Quattro GmbH boss Stephan Reil confirmed the final decision has been delayed but he is “optimistic” that the concept, which debuted at the 2010 Paris Auto Show last fall, will get the green light for production.

Speaking at the launch of the Audi Q3 crossover in Switzerland, Reil said the best solution would be “a small-volume exotic car with a production run of 500-1,000 cars.” Hitting the target weight of 3,086 pounds would require, “the use of lots of exotic materials,” which would necessitate a high price and low volumes. But there would be “no better way of demonstrating Audi’s ‘Ultra’ lightweight technologies.”
