Auto123 put on the racing gloves and attended a virtual presentation of the 2021 Audi e-tron GT.
Last week, journalists took part in not one, but two virtual presentations spotlighting Audi's first electric sports car, set to hit the market next summer. Part of the fledgling e-tron family of products, the Audi e-tron GT was, you may recall, first presented as a concept in 2018.
During the two media presentations last week, the production model was on hand but camouflaged. Which hid some details but didn’t prevent us from noting a clear resemblance to the prototype of two years ago. The folks at Audi explained, meanwhile, that the GT will be built at the same plant as the R8.
Borrowed from Porsche
We also know that the e-tron GT will borrow from the Porsche Taycan its 800-volt fast-charging architecture, battery technology and other elements of its engineering pedigree.
