Audi Is Developing New Electric Supercar

According to reports, Audi has plans for an electric supercar that would replace the R8. Dubbed the E-Tron GTR, the car will be based off the platform developed for the Porsche Taycan which should be a comprehensively sporty vehicle in its own right. Audi R&D chief Hans-Joachim Rothenpieler said, “Audi Sport must have e-mobility, and our icons for the brand must become electric. We are in discussions regarding the sporty cars and the RS vehicles — they will need a change towards e-mobility.” Capable of going from 0-62 mph in just over 2 seconds, this electric car has a 300-mile range per charge.
