According to Audi official, The future Audi R4 could debut in 2014, it will be classified under TT in the German automaker range and will rival roadsters like Mazda MX-5.

Audi is planning coupe and roadster versions of the Audi R4. With the company’s emphasis on lightweight materials, the R4 could come in below 2500 pounds, depending on how much aluminum engineers will be allowed to use. We predict a hybrid body structure of steel and aluminum.

The Audi R4 is expected to be a production version of the second Audi e-Tron concept, but come equipped with proper engines instead of the headline eco-electric versions touted at the time of the concept.

The Audi A4 will be equipped with small but powerful engines, like a 1.4-liter TSi egine that will develops 180 HP. A Quattro all-wheel-drive version is also possible, as is an electrified R4, as previewed by the e-tron. Later into the life cycle, a top-spec version could be powered by VW’s ubiquitous turbocharged 2.0-liter rated somewhere between 200 and 300 hp.

Audi could attract a market segment left open after the departure of Honda S2000. The model provided a 240 HP from a 1998 cc aspirated engine and offer outstanding dynamic performance. The Japanese roadster was taken out of production and will not receive a replacement in the near future, and the Germans from Audi would have this chance to grab market share before the rivals from BMW and Mercedes to develop a competitor on the roadsters compact premium segment.
