Default Audi reportedly shoots down electric R8 rumor for Frankfurt


Audi R8 V12 TDI concept - Click above for a high-res image gallery

Rumors in the European press that Audi would bring an all-electric R8 supercar (or an extended range EV that uses a diesel range extender) to the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show in September have been denied by an Audi spokesperson. The anonymous Audi representative told Edmund's Inside Line that the stories in Auto Motor und Sport in Germany and L'Automobile in France were "not true."

Instead, Audi will stick to the liquid fuel path and show off the R8 Spyder with gas engines. While we certainly don't fault Audi for sticking with what it knows, the possibility of a limited edition R8 EV challenging Tesla made for a good night's dream, anyway.
