Audi RS5 – Click above for high-res image gallery

In addition to the world premiers of the RS5, the all-new A1 (complete with Justin Timberlake cameo) and the near-production A8 Hybrid, Audi plans to trot out an additional concept car onto the stage at the Geneva Motor Show, and your guess is as good as ours.

With the two previous e-tron concepts and Audi's push to get an electric sports car to market within the next two years, it almost seems inevitable that another variant of the e-tron is in the cards, but maybe not this soon. Other possibilities include a new hatch to replace the A3 – something that seems decidedly staid for an otherwise spectacular show – and our personal pick: Something TTish. So... what do you think is coming to Switzerland? Sound off in the comments below and get ready for our live coverage beginning on Tuesday.

      Forgive me for dumb question... what's the difference between RS5 and S5?
      • 4 Years Ago
      RS5 is in my "imaginary" garage.....love this car to bits...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Quattro in a Box?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Audi R4! With motor from the TT-RS! Maybe that's just wishful thinking.
        • 4 Years Ago
        no, you're spot on, that's what I'm guessing. MkIII TT/R4 + blusport platform car, looks like the silver/blue etron, with the 2.5T for sure... maybe a hair lighter than the last TT as it'll be a new body etc if that's the case.
        • 4 Years Ago
        The R4/e-tron and MKIII TT are not the same car.

        The TT is getting a refresh this year and will be around for awhile longer.
        • 4 Years Ago
        TT is too young, give the TTRS some time to sell.
        I'm hoping for an A3 concept as Audi's answer to Lexus' new hatch.
        A6 or A7 might be a possibility, but i fear audi may be showing another e-tron type concept.

      as the biggest audi fan here i can say, with all confidence, if it's ANOTHER e-tron i don't give a rat's @$$. New TT, maybe, but e-tron concept 53billionand2? yawn.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm thinking, maybe an R4, or a new A6? Or maybe even a new concept that pushes the Audi design pattern forward?
      • 4 Years Ago
      wish: R4
      reality: A3 sedan
      letdown: yet another e-tron
      • 4 Years Ago
      Here's an idea... How about a current gen TT fitted with e-tron drivetrain. Not sure when the new TT is due but its recent refresh still sorta has that new car smell about it. So I am thinking that why not spread the e-tron love through out the line up. I mean what car would you not love when they come with thousands of pounds of torque...hehe even if it took a little fudge factor math to get there!

      I honestly don't think anyone will buy an Audi for the sole reason that Justin Timberlake is endorsing them. Is Audi's customer base really that shallow?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Don't be so quick to....walk away...
      • 4 Years Ago
      what kind of loser is going to be me more interested in audi's because justin (I already have to much money for being so untalented) timberlake is associated with them..why do they throw $$$ away on these lame "celebrities" who already have too much $$$ to hawk their stuff believing they have any significance on making a logical rationale person buy anything
        • 4 Years Ago
        You presume people select brands rationally, which they definitely don't. The fact is that celebrity endorsement, silly as it is, adds measurable value to a brand and affects sales positively. Since selling cars is a business first and foremost, they're wise to add this tactic to their marketing mix.

        In my opinion, using Timberlake seems awfully odd on the surface. He doesn't strike any of us as a car guy. But his wide appeal -- globally -- actually works for Audi. Regardless of what you and I think, he's seen as forward-leaning cultural icon. In that regard, for sales' sake, he'll easily be worth the million or two they're paying him.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Well, that's because there's a shortage of logical, rational people when it comes to shopping for cars, especially when it comes to luxury marques. I mean, just take a look at all the mid 30's - 40's women driving GL's, Range Rovers, Q7's, Lexuses, etc. and younger teens - 20 somethings driving mini's, A4/S4/A5/S5's, BMW 3's & 5's, C300/350's. Most if not all of these cars capitalize on making the driver feel sexy and sophisticated, and adding a celebrity figure should enhance the effect on most prospective buyers.

      Based on how complete the last e-tron concept was, I would not be surprised if they rolled out the R4.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Would. Be. Amazing!
        • 4 Years Ago
        R4 & MkIII TT are one in the same... but yes... the next, mid engined TT sounds like a valid bet.
