2009 Detroit auto show
The Audi R8 may not have the high profile that some sports cars enjoy, but it's certainly no slouch--especially in the looks department. That's why TCC was especially happy to hear fairly credible rumors that Audi will release a convertible version during the 2011 calendar year.
Apart from that, we don't know much. Sources have indicated that the convertible will feature a soft top, but no details on the powerplant have emerged. However, price is said to be in the £85,000 range (nearly $127,000), which does tell us one thing: we'll have to sell our treasured Yugo collection to afford it.
