However, there are even more models in the pipeline but most of these are at very different stages of development. Later this year we will see a new Q3 compact SUV, as well as the new 2012 Audi A6, but further down the track there could be a revival of the A2 badge and possibly a production version of last year’s Quattro Concept sports car.
Speaking with InsideLine, Audi design boss Wolfgang Egger confirmed that design work on a new-generation A2 is complete but a lack of a suitable platform within the Volkswagen Group means the project is still on hold.

Instead, Audi may focus on more performance-oriented models. During the same interview Egger said that a production version of the Quattro Concept was still being considered and the project was far from dead.
He also revealed that Audi’s lineup also had room for a BMW X6 rival. Although the upcoming Q3 will fulfill this role somewhat, Egger said that Audi could go further to compete with BMW.
