Design study gives Audi plenty to think about.
Audi recently revealed plans to expand its lineup from 49 to 60 models over the next few years. Entering the full-size category with an A9 could be part of those plans, and design student Patrick Bucker thinks he has a concept that could fit the bill. Dubbed the Jetstream Quattro, the futuristic concept was inspired by both horse-drawn carriages and state-of-the-art business gets. After creating some renderings, Bucker built a static scale model of his concept.
The design student from Pforzheim University, Germany, said that the Jetstream Quattro is "an homage to the coachman-seat, there is a carbon-fiber element in the front instead of the regular hood, which also shows Audi's design theme to integrate the space-frame into the design."
