If you believe the old adage that where there’s smoke there’s fire, then continued rumors of a new A9 model by Audi are a strong indication that the range-topping super coupe is on its way.

According to the latest info the A9 will be the crowning glory of Audi’s goal to be the world’s number one premium car brand, a target it hopes to achieve by 2015. Likely to be based on the current A8 platform, look for similar engine options, including the 500-hp 6.3-liter W12 engine available in the A8 L.

But that’s not all, no, the A9 could also spawn a convertible version to go bumper-to-bumper with a planed S-Class drop-top.
