I'm a big fan of my B5 A4 but have never been a fan of sedans. I love coupes and I bet a B5 coupe would have looked pretty slick.

The B6 coupe convertible ain't half bad, are they planning on releasing a hard top?

I bet some photoshop phun would cool to see how an A5 coupe would have looked.

Considering Audi has moved onto the B7 platform, I doubt there will be a coupe in the works. The only thing close to a B5 coupe I have seen is the older Audi 90's with the body kit conversion to a B5 front. Not bad looking at all.

3 step process:

lock all your doors

disconnect the relay that operates the vacuum assist locks in the back

seal the cracks of the rear door with matching colored putty/bondo/jello/whatever

According to february Motor Trend the new A5 is coming to Europe in 2006 - coupe based on the new A4 platform. But its a fixed roof, not a top-down.

those Frankenstein cars are awesome! I'd have totally bought a B5 coupe over a 3 series, C class, Saab or Volvo coupe back in '96-'01 any day!

specially for us guys who have absolutely no use for a four door. my back seat has dust on it.

I really like the idea of an Audi coupe as well. I really loved (actually, I still do) the Volvo coupe. I thought it was a beautiful car. Maybe one day I'll own one and go crazy with it. We all know Volvo knows how to turbocharge cars too.

yeah those Volvo coupes were bad.. I think the price on those has dropped a lot too, I think they sell for around $15k.
remember that metallic orange color that they had? that was shweet.

"historical" section at audiworld shows some picks of a real funky looking convertible they sold during 97-99.
i bet this is what a B5 coupe would have really turned out like.
