With Porsche now taken over by Volkswagen, we can expect a number of spin-offs from the extended chassis lines that are now available to either automaker. Or even to Audi, Bugatti, Lamborghini and others. The one car that VW has its eyes on is the Porsche Panamera as it will provide for an ideal platform for a number of spin-offs, like this one, the R7 design study by Gabriel Rhabi.
The French artist has successfully captured Audi’s sporting characteristics, threw in four-doors and low slung look and could have Audi designers and management thinking about the possibilities as almost everything about the car is production ready.
Understandably, there is no information available about this car as it is just a design study but just an idea, throw in the R8’s V10 or the V8 and limit production to just a few hundred per year and Audi has a definate winner on their hands, but the chances of that happening are low as Audi is a volume car maker, so the chances of this making it to production? Relatively low.
