Travis Pastrana Says Goodbye Rally, Hello NASCAR (Updated)

It's just what you do when rallying ceases to be awesome.

Travis Pastrana has quite a few honors sitting on his shelf from his days as a Subaru rally car driver: setting a record for fastest drive up Mount Washington, earning the unofficial Kenny Powers Brass Balls Award for leaping his car 269 feet across Long Beach Harbor, and while not performing over-the-top stunts of testicular fortitude, he won 22 races and brought home four national rally championships.

VW, Audi Want to Build the Quattro Concept

But they don't agree on how to pull it off.

Volkswagen and Audi corporate leaders have come to a decision: they'd love to see the Audi Quattro concept car exhibited at the Paris Motor Show reach production. It's the execution of that plan, however, that seems to be causing a bit of confusion.

Rupert Stadler, head of Audi, says he'd like to bring the Quattro to market as a low-volume niche car with a high price tag, ideally with engine options restricted to one—a version of the 340 hp turbocharged inline-five used on the concept. However, Volkswagen Group CEO Martin Winterkorn would rather see the car hit the streets as an entire model range, equipped with a variety of engines and selling around 35,000 units globally each year.

In either case, Audi has certainly done the legwork necessary to bring the car to production; the Quattro concept was under development for three years prior to its Paris debut, and the concept can hit 100 miles per hour. It will probably take a couple years for the car to reach the streets, whatever form it takes; and while we'd love to see Audi build a lightweight, stripped-down turbocharged four-cylinder version for under, say, $30,000, it seems more likely to us that the car will hit the market in low-volume, high-priced form.
