There’s no question that the most exciting car coming from Ingolstadt within the next year is the Audi e-tron GT. The e-tron GT will be an all-electric, four-door supercar based on the same chassis as the Porsche Taycan. So it’s going to be incredibly fast, very fun to drive and extremely high-tech. However, unlike many electric cars, it’s going to look fantastic, as seen by these new spy photos. (We don’t own the photos but you can see them here)
When the Audi e-tron GT Concept first arrived, we spoke with Matt Mostafaei about its design and he told us at the time that the Concept was about 90-percent production-ready. So we knew then that the actual production car would look extremely similar to the stunning concept car.
In these new spy photos, we can tell Mostafaei wasn’t kidding. Even with heavy camouflage, the e-tron GT looks great and just like the concept car on which it’s based. It’s low, sleek, wide and very athletic looking. What’s nice is that it doesn’t look like an electric car. If you didn’t know it was all-electric, it would just look like a sexy, exotic four-door GT car. Which it also is, of course.
At the front, we see the same sort of headlights that were on the concept car and the same goes for the taillights at the back. We can see that it has an active rear spoiler and that its hips are very wide and pronounced, giving it a very athletic stance.
If you’re thinking that it looks a lot like the Porsche Taycan, you’re forgiven. Both cars are built on the same J1 all-electric architecture, were designed and developed partly together and they even share similar powertrain gubbins. So the fact that they look similar should come as no surprise.
We can’t wait to see the official car, which should make its debut sometime in late 2020, like December-ish. It has the potential to be the most ground-breaking Audi since the original R8. December can’t come soon enough.
