New engine family will be developed along with Porsche.
Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, head of technical development for Audi, promises a slew of new RS high-performance models “topping almost every vehicle range”. Speaking to Car & Driver, Hackenberg said that the high-performance cars would be spread across the range of Audi models, with the first expected to be an RS3 hot-hatch, seen here in spy pics. The company is also planning a new engine family, which will be jointly developed by Audi and Porsche and used in both company's future models.
The upcoming RS models and many other Audi offerings will be based on the next MLB platform, MLB Evo, which will make its debut on the next-generation Q7 SUV, planned for arrival by the end of 2015.
