2015 Audi R8 renderings show very possible look
The R8 has reached icon status so quickly that the vast majority of improvements in each generation will be technological, a la 911. This is a good rendering but the rear lets it down.

2015 Audi Q7 makes video debut
In all respects a huge leap forward in every way except the design of the front end. It's a little more crossover looking then SUV to my eyes which seems to in lock-step with current trends.

2015 Audi Q7 drops most of its camouflage in latest spy shots
This is a vast improvement over the current generation in the looks department. Will be curious to see what the overall loss in weight is vs current generation. The Q7 is a very good seller and this one looks like it should do even better. Not a very exciting category to begin with.

BMW shows off 5-Series GT with eDrive and TwinPower Turbo hybrid setup
How much more weight? You gotta think it has to be +5000lbs.

Audi is preparing for a buttonless future
No doubt Audi will overcome the daylight and fingerprint issues that plague touchscreens. That being said, tactile knobs and switches will likely be retained but to a much lesser degree.
