Whether or not it looks like the E92, it's about an Audi. That's why it was moved.

Strong look, but i wish the lines did not rise up with the tires and stayed straight instead. The front view is sick good.

Looks more like a Camry Solara

Overall I like the design but the front is kind of used. Audi didn't do a great job separating the coupe from the sedan like BMW did IMO.

My guess is they'll offer the 3.2L V6 and the 4.2L V8 to compete with the 328i and 335i respectively. Audi will need to get the pricing right though if they're hopeful of steering the BMW coupe customers.

Makes me wonder about the new S4. Turbo-charged V8? V10???

Do you know whether it has 3 seats in the back?

they changed the shark fin for a plain antenna, from the side you see the rear bumper curving up as BMW's, and on the side skirts, the side mirrors look a bit the same as the e92, the back look redesigned abit like the bMW... It looks to me as if they Looked at the e92 for inspiration and came out with their own audi version of coupe with e92 designe in mind. the front looks bit traditional as the audi sedans do with little work, and the rest redesigne. Over all, they tried to do what BMW did in redisigning the new coupe but keeping it traditional... Only problem is, audi's redesigned/traditional, looks 80percent like the e92. As stated many times, BMW set the benchmark!
