Right now, the brand-spanking new Audi e-tron GT is one of the hottest cars on the interwebs. Enthusiasts everywhere can’t seem to get enough of it and yes I know that sounded like the voiceover in a commercial for a romantic comedy. But it’s true. The e-tron GT is blowing up and it seems to be getting near-unanimous praise. So it’s no surprise that it’s gotten rendered in a few different ways.
Graphic artist Aksyonov Nikita has recently rendered the Audi e-tron GT in three different ways; coupe, convertible and shooting brake. While the colors are a funky and we don’t think the wheels rendered look great on the e-tron GT, the renders are really impressive.
They’re impressive because the Audi e-tron GT seems to look great in all three body styles. Normally, it’s a four-door sportback, which is sort of like a four-door coupe but with a liftback tailgate. And the real e-tron GT looks great in its body style.
However, it looks best as a coupe. As a coupe, the Audi e-tron GT looks like a proper performance machine, not just a cool electric car. It’s actually surprising how well the e-tron GT’s design language works minus two doors.
In convertible form, or Spyder in Audi speak, it looks good, with a whiff of the Audi R8 Spyder. That’s really no surprise as it seems as if Nikita used the rear decklid of the R8 Spyder in this render. Still, it looks great and would be awesome as a drop-top. I drove a BMW i8 Roadster with the top down, in fully-electric mode once and the experience of driving an electric, convertible sports car is very cool.
The shooting brake Audi e-tron GT looks cool, too. It’s not as sexy as the coupe or convertible but it’s still very cool. What’s interesting is that it doesn’t look as good as the Audi PB18 e-tron, which is an all-electric shooting brake supercar concept that we love.
Still, it’s remarkable how good looking the Audi e-tron GT is in any form. Give it almost any body style and it looks great. It’s a design success and Marc Lichte and the rest of the Audi design team should be very proud.
