The Audi e-tron GT is easily the most hotly anticipated car in the brand’s upcoming lineup. When it debuts in late 2020 (likely December), the e-tron GT will be the mechanical sibling to the Porsche Taycan 4S, a car that we’ve already heard stellar things about. In some new spy photos, we can see the e-tron GT doing some camouflaged testing on public roads. (We don’t own the spy photos but you can see them here)
Each and every time we see the Audi e-tron GT in new spy photos, we’re reminded of the fact that Audi is really allowing it to look exactly like the concept car.
When the e-tron GT Concept first debuted, it was a stunning thing, with curvaceous arches, sharp lines and a muscular design. It looked like a proper super sedan.
Then Audi told us all that the production car would look almost identical to the beautiful concept car before us. To be honest, most of us shrugged that off in disbelief. Few production cars ever look even remotely like their concepts, so the odds weren’t in favor of the e-tron GT
However, we now know that Audi wasn’t messing around and that the production-ready EV super sedan will look nearly identical to the concept on which it’s based. It’s not even hearsay anymore, as we can see the damn thing. Everything from its proportions to its headlights to its taillights and active rear spoiler all look just like the concept car.
When it finally makes its official debut, the Audi e-tron GT will be mechanically almost identical to the aforementioned Porsche. So it will get two permanent-magnet electric motors, a 79.2 kWh battery pack (with a potentially optional 93.4 kWh Performance Battery Pack upgrade) and about 522 horsepower. That should make it capable of 0-60 mph in about 3.5 seconds and, judging by the Porsche, it should be able to do that all day long.
The Audi e-tron GT should be making its official reveal in December and it can’t come soon enough.
