Audi’s shelved R8 e-tron electric sports car is getting a second chance at life, with the automaker this week confirming the car will be built. It will arrive sometime in 2014, based on the second-generation R8 platform.
After running into financial trouble and being declared insolvent, the Nürburgring operations have since been sold. The good news is that the operations have been sold to an automotive company so it looks like the track is largely safe.
You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
