    Avant popularity in the U.S. just doesn't justify high powered wagons for the number of cars Audi sells. Remember, in terms of sales volume, BMW and Merc still outsell Audi in the U.S. by a good amount. That said, there should definitely be more of an RS presence overall. There should be some degree of competition for AMG and BMW M, which have models in virtually every class of car and SUVs.

    I would like to see:

    RS3 sedan
    RS4 sedan
    RS5 coupe and Sportback
    RS6 sedan
    RS7 sportback
    RSQ5 SUV (with the RS5 motor)
    TTRS

    This I think would be a good overall position for RS cars. And they should become available at the start of a model line production or no more than one year later, like AMG and M cars.
    Currently: Audi S6 * Audi S3 * Porsche Cayman GTS

    Here's what I want to see:

    Start with an A4 Avant body:

    box flared fenders
    yuuuuuge brakes
    2.5TFSI mounted longitudinally
    manual transmission

    Call it the RS2 Avant

    I don't care about the rest....okay, maybe an RS6 Avant..

    It would be much easier if you apply to the Audi design team and create this car from scratch! lol... what is Mike gonna do? CAD and 3D print you a custom RS2 avant?

The RS4 Avant would be that car. As soon as it's available, I'd be first in line and never look back. I wouldn't have to worry about loss of value because I would never sell it. Audi, please please please let us throw money at you!
    Let's just start with the s4 Avant for now!.. heck does it even have to be federalized??. Most likely not... Just open the books to order..

    The 2.5 5 cylinder would be a dream mounted longitudinally!.. Audi even did it themselves in a b8 a5 chassis!! 450hp.... Codenamed​ "the beast".. even the Audi commentator probably doesn't know about that one.lol.
    Sadly I see more investment in the shared 2.9 twin turbo v6 that's shared with the new b9 rs5 and new Porsche panamera's.. this motor will even wind up in the r8 eventually as a "lower cost" but more tunable version..

    Wanting an S6 Avant or RS6 Avant is one thing but as sad as it sounds, any Avant with more than 4 cylinders is a step in the right direction.

    ^^^This. We can dream all we want about the cars that aren't here but what it really boils down to is there undoubtedly needs to be more than one option for an avant for American buyers to purchase. I can't remember if I said it earlier in this thread or in a different thread in the avants only section but there are plenty of people, myself included that don't care for the body lines of the allroad. Not that I don't like it, it is an Audi avant after all, but it's just not what I'm looking for in an avant.
