    I really like the look of this car and points to an exciting future for the e-tron range. Given it's based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan, you'd hope it would be a fair bit cheaper than one of those but some estimates have it at £100k and for that kind of money I'd be sat having discussions in a Porsche dealer.

    I'm assuming there will be shared underpinnings with the Porsche Taycan which certainly is a most impressive car. Given Audi having gone down market in it's dashboard layouts on 8Y A3 and Q3 I think there will be many who hope these will be reversed at some point. Touch screen is great for an iPhone but not the dash of a premium car imho.

    Same platform as the Taycan with 60% shared components. Built in the R8 factory. One difference is that the e-tron GT will get 3 motors rather than the 2 the Taycan gets. Don't know if that is just for the top end models though. There will be an RS version as well. Still think the entry point should be far less than the Taycan which looks good value compared to the rest of the Porsche line-up.

    https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/products/taycan/powertrain-18555.html Porsche Taycan does look particularly good value against the 992/911 but actually an Audi A7 would still probably be a cheaper financial prospect to e-tron GT or Taycan!! The 991/992/911 high initial cost is often recovered at resale time! ( I'm hoping so anyway!! )

    I think it's likely to be rather more than £70K!

    Probably mate but still, a starting price of £68k is a bit ridiculous.

    I was thinking "has the car got a big dent on it's right hand side, why are they not showing that side??" then at 3:35 you get to see the right hand side lol.

    Only for the RS Carbon Black Vorsprung edition according to the article. RS starts at just under 111k.

    Great looking cars and will be interesting to see what filters down to the lower priced ranges in the future.

    Spent some time in a Taycan Turbo S recently, it's turned me... phenomenal machine, so capable and good fun. Sounds like the GT RS will be very similar. Don't get me wrong, the 5-pot is going nowhere but an EV will be the next family car I think.

    Configurator now live

    https://www.uk.audi.com/uk/web/en/m...&one-tid=a56a813d-7c7b-573d-bede-bed3d8aa4a3f

    I have been looking at EVs recently and have been considering an I Pace but I just couldn't commit. Thought about the E-tron sportback but not sure I am into the SUV thing. Probably why I couldn't go for the I Pace.
    I signed up for the updates on the Audi website and got the email Friday saying it was ready to order. I am seriously considering one. I will give them a call Monday. It won't be an RS unfortunately. Standard GT with maybe comfort and sound and tour pack.
    Has anyone seen a car in Kemora grey I am liking the look of that.

    The RS is a great looking car, but I’m not ready to spend £100k+ on a car that depends on charging infrastructure that’s still quite scarce in the uk.

    I don't doubt that in the next 5 years, once major manufacturers move into full scale EV production, then EV will be the way to go.
    But until then....:racer:

    It will suit 90-95% of my driving. My commute to work is 14 miles mostly B roads. I will have a charger at work, where most of the charging will be done and also one at home. If I have to do longer journeys I will still have the RS4. I won't commit to selling that until I know the EV will work for me.
    It looks to be a stunning car and unusually the GT is no different shape to the RS GT. Sure it gets different things as standard but not sure the price difference works for me. It won't stop me checking though.
