Could Audi Finally Be Gearing Up For A Proper Porsche Cayman Fighter?

If so, we'd have no arguments.

We’ve always been fans of the Audi TT, especially the TT RS. Thing is, the TT has pretty much been in a class all of its own, its nearest competitor being the BMW Z4 rather than the Porsche Boxster/Cayman. After all, both the Z4 and TT are front-engined as opposed to the Boxster/Cayman’s mid-engined setup. Audi has toyed in the past with building a proper mid-engined Porsche fighter, but nothing has happened yet. According to a new report coming from Germany’s Autobild, Audi may finally be making progress here.

Supposedly, Audi is working on the mid-engined R6 that’ll slot above the TT but below the R8 in the lineup. No exact details were provided but we wouldn’t be surprised if that so-called R6 came to fruition in the next few years. The TT has always been kind of a hard sell, mainly because the Boxster/Cayman is just so damn good. But if Audi gets this right, a potential R6 could be quite a thing. Pictured in this article is the 2013 Audi Sport Quattro Concept.
