Less powerful than the A1 Quattro?

We haven't heard much about the Audi S1, but a recent report says the car could be coming in the second half of 2013. 

What Car says the model will likely be based on the A1 Quattro, but feature a detuned 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine. This means we can expect an output that slots the car between the 185 PS (136 kW / 182 hp) A1 1.4 TFSI and the 256 PS (188 kW / 252 hp) A1 Quattro.

There's also word of an RS1, but a spokesperson said the model hasn't been green-lighted as of yet.

Is this the Audi equivalent of VW's Polo? The HP is in GTI territory.

Do the math guys. The S model of a higher class model has roughly the specs of the RS model of a lower class. RS3 has about S4 specs. S1 will thus have 155-160kw and RS1 will have around 200kw like the S3. I still want a loony A1 with the 2.5L with more than TT-RS plus power. Come on!

Why isit going to take them way over a year to give an extra power to make a S1?, Thats almost like ordering a happy meal from mcdonalds and wait for 1 1/2 hour for some toys

I cant wait a new S1, hope so RS1 come too..I think S1 has at least 220hp, and RS1 has 280-300hp. I like the style of A1.

I don't think A1 sells well. S1 might highly be a disappointment IMO

the second half of 2013 is too late for the S1. i don't think future RS1 customers can wait that long

I love my A1 TDI. Only way i'll think of giving it up is on a RS1!!! Or maybe a quattro. Bet neither will come to Australia though :(

It has to look really good in order to compete with the JCW (saleswise)
