With BMW and Mercedes both talking about soon releasing electric or alternative fuel sports cars, Audi is sitting the odd one out. Rumor has it, they’ve been talking about an electric version of the R8 supercar called the ePerformance Concept.
As you can see above, the bodywork would need to be noticeably different, and (at least in my opinion) a totally sperate car from the R8 line-up, which includes the V8, V10, and soon to be Spyder models. An electric version of the R8 won’t sit right with me, but a new model line would be appropriate.
The 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show is going to be interesting this year…
