Ever since I head the first rumors coming out of Germany that Audi was bringing a new quattro concept to Frankfurt, I believed it was production worthy. The fact that it was going to be bigger than the 2011 meant this concept landed in the large coupe segment where Audi didn't have have a big coupe to rival BMW.
Vorschprung finally revealed what we were hoping they would in Frankfurt, a 4.6 meter long car called the quattro Sport that on paper sounded like the perfect machine, having 700 horsepower and remarkably low fuel consumption.

Audi's head of design Wolfgang Egger also believes the quattro is exactly what Audi needs and told Auto Express that they might be putting it into production. Oddly, Egger says they need to make a decision if they'll make the new quattro on a MQB platform or the MLB platform.

Even if they don't put it into production, the designer says design elements like the C-pillar, edgy rear wings and front end will be used on other sportscar.

Personally, I'd say the quattro needs to be MLB-based, powered by a V8 and larger than the RS5.
