Report: Electric Audi R8 Back On?

After vehemently denying rumors that the company is working on an electric version of the R8 sports car, Audi is stirring up interest by launching a new website called Electricity Untamed. There isn’t much on the site, expect for a drawing of a sports car that could be an R8, or a TT, or even, well, any Audi.

There’s also a brief message saying that “electricity will be untamed” on September 15th, which, by no coincidence, is the first day of the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Whether Audi actually does have plans for a zero-emissions R8 to compete with cars like the electric Mercedes SLS gullwing remains to be seen.
