Do These Patent Images Show The Production-Spec Audi E-Tron GT?

A series of images reportedly showing the production-spec Audi e-tron GT have appeared online at the E-Tron Forum.

These images allegedly come from the Chinese State Intellectual Property Office and show that the road-going e-tron GT will look virtually identical to the concept car. In fact, the resemblance is so striking, we’re not entirely convinced these designs actually show the production car and not last year’s concept…

Viewed from the front, you will see the exact same fascia, complete with a faux grille and intakes to help cool the brakes. The side profile also shows the same wheels as the concept and doors without any visible handles. Similarities between the production car and the concept continue at the rear, with the same taillights and diffuser.

Upon unveiling the car at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, Audi design boss Mark Lichte said that the design of the concept was largely ready for production, although the finished product likely won’t be presented to the world until the second half of 2020.

The Audi e-tron GT has similar proportions to the A7 Sportback and is based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan. This means it uses the same 800-volt system as the Taycan, which enables its battery to be charged to 80 per cent capacity in around 20 minutes. Audi quotes the concept as having an output of 582 HP and claims that it will accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds before reaching 124 mph (200 km/h) in 12 seconds and topping out at an electronically limited 149 mph (240 km/h).

    Are there any differences at all? If not, this might just be the design patent for the concept car (they are usually protected by patents too).

    Of course many concept cars nowadays are very close to what is already slated for production, but there are usually some alterations.

    Man, I wish news outlets would use some common sense before reposting the popular story of the day.

    This is a very common tactic in the industry. There are literally no differences between the patent drawings and the press renderings. So they used the same model base to submit for patent.

    That’s it.

    It’s not showing the production car. I understand not everyone is obsessive over cars and camo, but if it’s someone’s job to report it, they should know about this normal procedure.

    Obviously the concept car. The production model already been shown and it has 4 instead of 3 ‘pillars’ in the diffuser and also normal doorhandles, slimmer airvents in the front of the door and bigger mirrors
