4. Audi R8 e-tron
Audi R8 e-tron
We’re still drooling over Audi’s e-tron concept that was originally shown back in 2009, but it doesn’t help that there have been rumors of the car hitting production. The etron uses the already awesome R8 platform, but replaces the V8 and V10 engines with four electric motors — one for each wheel. This means that the R8 e-tron will hit 60mph in 4.2 seconds. Want some more insane statistics? The total power and torque numbers for the R8 e-tron come to 308 hp and 3,319 lb-ft of torque. If the Tesla didn’t give you a shock, maybe the R8 e-tron is the electric sports car you’re really looking forward to. The e-tron technology will also be making its way to other cars like the A3, and maybe a smaller R8.
