Much like the Q4 E-Tron, the production GT will bear a striking resemblance to the concept from last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, though it, too, will gain real door handles and a bit more texturing around the front fascia.Early next decade, a number of electrified Audis will launch on the company’s new PPE architecture, co-developed with Porsche.
