Audi executives are still hesitant about introducing the R4 model in production. Audi R4 is a sports model with the engine located centrally and a design inspired by the e-tron concept. It seems that the management members have not determined yet if they will use an aluminum ASF platform for thismodel, or if they will use steel to build the R4’s chassis and body. Therefore, those from Audi will conduct a feasibility study thorough that will determine which option is best for the new model.
According to sources within Audi, the final decision on the R4 project lies in the hands of directors of Volkswagen. German corporate executives want to create a particularly new model, to be both profitable and efficient.
