Audi just finished taking the wrapping off of its e-tron SUV, the brand’s first-ever electric car. It seems as if that was just the beginning, though, and now the brand is moving quickly. In a recent article from The Drive, it’s said that the Audi Sport e-tron GT will be making its debut at the L.A. Auto Show come November.
So only a couple of months after launching the Audi e-tron, the four-ringed brand will be launching yet another electric car. After reaching out to a source at Audi, we were told that this Audi Sport e-tron GT is just going to be a concept car and no word on how close it is to production.
According to The Drive, the Audi Sport e-tron GT will eventually become a production car, one built on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan, which is a bespoke platform at the moment, not shared with any other VW Group car.
While no specs have been released, the Porsche Taycan makes 600 hp from its twin electric motors and, thanks to 800-volt charging, it can charge 250 miles worth of range in 15 minutes.
We don’t have any confirmation of whether or not this is going to be a standard Audi product or an Audi Sport product. The Drive is calling it an Audi Sport but we don’t have any official confirmation on that. Although, it’s said that it will be built in the same factory as the Audi R8, so it’s possible that it will be an Audi Sport car.
As a car, the Audi Sport e-tron GT will be a four-door, all-electric Sportback, similar in size, performance and body style to the Audi RS7. If that’s the case, it’s the perfect follow up to the e-tron SUV, which is a sensible, practical and affordable (relatively) SUV. That’s all that’s known as of right now but we’ll find out more as the L.A. Auto Show approaches.
