At the upcoming Paris Auto Show, Audi will unveil its latest E-Tron version, a roadster based on the smaller rear-drive E-Tron unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. Believed to eventually be called the R4 Spyder, this concept is the latest step in bringing a new sportscar into the Audi lineup.

Like its coupe counterpart, we expect this drop-top to use a similar electric setup with 204-hp and a 0-62-mph time of 5.9 seconds. That earlier model was capable of a distance of 155 miles on a single charge, with a charge time of 11 hours through a conventional household outlet.

AutoGuide will be covering the Paris Auto Show extensively an will be sure to bring you the latest updates on on Audi’s rumored R4.
