It's not dead yet

We recently heard that the Audi R8 supercar doesn't have a bright future, with no new generation on the horizon.

Supercar may be around a few more years, then Audi will move on

Another Volkswagen Group icon looks headed for the River Styx. A few days after Autocar reported that the VW Beetle won't live past the current generation, Car and Driver reports "there are no current plans for a direct replacement" of the Audi R8.
