Heaven knows whether Audi will stick with the current chassis design or improve it even more, shifting the engine ever more back to improve the balance or whether they will shift from fwd to rwd for their mainstream models while retaining the awd for their sportiest version, yeah this is very much on the cards if you read between the lines has been reportably discussed at the highest levels.
Frankly I love both brands but I personally hope Audi don't try an become another BMW type product, we need variety and difference choices but either way I believe Audi will be the brand to watch in the near future.
