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.
