While we’re jazzed about cars like the Audi RS6 Avant and RS Q8, the upcoming Audi we’re most excited about is a bit further out and far less noisy — the Audi e-tron GT. Thankfully, some new spy photos have been released and, in them, we get the best look at the production car we’ve seen yet. (We don’t own them but they can be seen here)
We’ve been waiting with bated breath to see the e-tron GT in the flesh ever since Audi first showed off the concept car. It’s essentially Audi’s version of the Porsche Taycan and by know you probably know how astonishing that car is. So, naturally, we can’t wait to see it.
In these spy photos, it looks excellent. Of course, we can’t see the whole car, as it’s covered in heavy camouflaged, but we can see enough to be stoked. Its profile looks fantastic; long, low and muscular; and its proportions seem excellent for a four-door electric sedan. Personally, I’m a big fan of the way Porsche Taycan’s design and I think this Audi e-tron GT is going to look even better.
What’s also wonderful is the fact that it seems to look just like the stunning concept car on which it’s based. Even the headlights and taillights look nearly identical to those found on the concept. When Audi reps told me the concept’s design was about 95-percent production-ready, they weren’t kidding.
Powering the e-tron GT will be a pair of electric motors, likely making somewhere around 560 hp, which is what the Porsche Taycan 4S makes. Audi claims 0-60 in around 3.5 seconds, which sounds a bit conservative.
The Audi e-tron GT will make its worldwide debut sometime in late 2020, likely December, which is too far away if you ask us. But you can bet your ass that we’re going to be there to see it in the flesh and, hopefully, drive it soon after.
