Will America Get the S3 Manual and RS3?

Company hints this could happen.

Withthe successful debut of the A3 Sedan in the US market, Audi has beendrawing buyers into its showrooms and making a big impact on localshoppers. But with hotter versions available in Europe, the company would be wiseto consider importing some performance models to really catch the heartof enthusiasts. Speaking to the Fortitude forum, Audi of America's Scott Keough has raised these expectations even higher by saying the company isinterested in a six-speed manual version of the S3.

Furthermore, and even more exciting, Kough is "looking veryclosely" at the option of bringing us the ultra-hot RS3 sedan, a nearlydirect rival to BMW's upcoming M2 coupe. If it looks anything like this A3Clubsport Quattro Concept, we're all in.
