Audi's bringing 2 new models to the Detroit Auto Show

Audi has confirmed it will be showing two new cars at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month. Although Audi is mute on what
those two cars will be, one is reportedly a "stunning" new concept car; the second being a new production model making its worldwide debut. We previously speculated that Audi could be showing the production TT-S, although the next new model expected to come down the pipeline from Audi is a facelifted version of the A3 hatchback, which makes it a strong candidate to fill that slot at Audi's Detroit stand. The A3 has run the longest in the line-up since introduction or refresh, followed by the A8 luxury sedan. The "stunning" concept car is expected to be somehow based on the already-stunning R8 supercar. Some reports suggest it could be the V10 version known tentatively as the RS8, or possibly a convertible version of the mid-engined sportscar. Given the aesthetic used, the roadster would seem more fitting than the V10, although a design study could also fit the bill. We'll just have to wait another few weeks to see.

The "new" A3 (with the updated grille etc) was released only a year or so ago, is it really in need of an update? The 06/56 model still looks *fantastic*. Why change a good thing?

Cross Cabriolet could well be one. S5 or RS6 as the other? Or maybe the Q5 ?

The A3 and A4 could benefit from shedding some weight. It would unleash a lot more power and gas mileage. The little A3 weighs over 3700 lbs with options. Ouch!
