Must Watch Video: 16 Days of Disappointment at Dakar 2023

Audi came into the 2023 Dakar with high hopes. But the Dakar is a cruel and unforgiving race and Audi saw that firsthand this year. Things were actually going quite well until Stage 6. Big crashes and other setbacks then struck and eliminated any hope of Audi taking home the top prize. A video was recently posted on the Audi YouTube channel that summarizes their Dakar effort this year.

Must Watch Video: $7K Audi S5 Has Laundry List of Issues

The 2008 Audi S5 is a great little coupe. The V8 engine and a manual transmission makes for a lot of fun. And thanks to depreciation these cars can be bought for a reasonable amount of money. But if you are looking for the CHEAPEST Audi S5 that you can buy you should know that the purchase price might be just the beginning of your financial outlay. The Audi S5 in this video was bought for only $6,900. But an inspection revealed that it needs nearly $5,000 in repairs. And that does not include the transmission which may also need major work. Ouch.

The Good and the Bad: Road Tripping in the Audi e-tron

2019 Audi e-tron

AudiWorld member A4 Phil took his Audi e-tron on a 5,000-road trip over Christmas and dubbed his e-tron a ‘road trip king.’

The 2019 Audi e-tron was a huge moment in the history of the brand, as it marked the beginning of Ingolstadt’s pivot toward its all-electric future. With 355 horsepower, electronic quattro all-wheel drive, and a 204-mile range, it’s a new breed of EV, and unlike many competitors, the styling doesn’t scream “electric car.” But while most buyers would be content to use the e-tron as a daily driver or commuter, AudiWorld member A4 Phil recently completed a 5,000-mile road trip, and overall, he’s beyond pleased with the performance of his green machine.

In fact, he starts the post with this endorsement: “Our e-trons really are road trip kings. Take yours on a trip. You will love it.” He also praised the e-tron’s charging speed, saying “There is something very satisfying about rolling into charge with your ’19 and being out of there in 20 minutes while the other new Mach-Es, BMWs, etc, are wondering why they are charging at 50 kWs.” That said, while things went smoothly overall, A4 Phil has a separate thread on the Adaptive Cruise Assist, and posted some interesting observations about the e-tron’s route planner.

If you’re curious about what it’s like to travel via electric car, it’s a good read, so I’m including his first two points here:

Why does the map not yet show DC chargers en route? If I have a leg that the map is showing me my next charge, I’d like it to also show me any other EA’s I am passing in case my family is asking for a food stop, I can select an exit because of an available EA that is in the area. It shows me gas stations and all sorts of useless information, but not en route DCQC’s.

Why does the e-tron route planner not give you an SOC charging target? It gives you a charging time. But the time is useless because it does not account for the actual speed of the charger. Just the planned speed. So it tells you that you are going to roll in at 21% SOC and you will need to charge for 26 minutes. To what SOC? Why doesn’t it say that you are rolling in at 21% SOC and you need to charge to 87% SOC. Or better, why doesn’t it push you an alert on your phone so that you are notified while wandering around Walmart or whatever you are doing.

For the uninitiated, “EA” stands for Electrify America, “DCQC” stands for DC Quick Chargers, and “SOC” stands for State of Charge. And just as you’d think, his fellow Audi fans have some thoughts.

For starters, rdgrimes has an easy solution to the quirks of the native system, saying “I think the general consensus is to use anything other than the Audi route planning.” Also, yeamac points out that when it comes to road trip royalty, his Chrysler Pacifica takes the crown. And having driven Ma Mopar’s luxurious people mover? I can see why. Because while it’s as comfortable as an old-school Lincoln Continental, it’s got way more room, and the hybrid system gives it a range of around 500 miles — so your bladder will likely require attention before the fuel tank will.

Of course, that’s comparing apples to oranges, as there’s no gas engine on board with the e-tron. And it’s worth noting that exotic EV manufacturers like Lucid have already cracked the 400-mile mark, meaning we’ll soon see electric vehicles with an even more impressive range. There’s plenty more great info on the thread, so head over and check it out!

Must Watch Video: Trading a Porsche 911 for an Audi S8

Matt Watson from Carwow was cruising around in a Porsche 911 Turbo S as his daily driver. But with a growing family he needed a bit more room than the 911 could provide. So how do you replace a rocket ship like a Turbo S? With an Audi S8 of course! Watson can choose just about any car he wants so him deciding that the S8 would be best speaks volumes about the car itself.

Must Watch Video: Final R8 vs First R8

Sadly the Audi R8 days are coming to a close. With R8 production ending the folks at Top Gear thought it would be the perfect time to look at the very first R8 and compare it to the final R8 V10 GT.

Wraps come off the all-new Polestar 3 SUV

Polestar 3 SUV

Swedish EV maker Polestar has unveiled its first SUV – a car which is expected to turbo-charge the brand’s sales.

Priced from £79,900, it was also be the first Polestar to be produced on two continents – Chengdu, China and Ridgeville, South Carolina.

Polestar 3 will compete with other electric SUVs in the premium sector, including the Jaguar I-Pace, BMW iX, Mercedes-Benz EQC and Audi e-tron.

It will launch with a dual-motor powertrain, which in standard form produces 483bhp and 618lb ft of torque. That’s enough to power the 2.5-tonne 4×4 from 0-62mph in 5.0sec and on to a top speed of 130mph.

An optional Performance Pack adds an extra 27bhp and 51lb ft, shaving 0.3sec off the 0-62mph sprint.

More importantly to some, the long Range Polestar 3 will have a 111kWh lithium ion battery that has a claimed range of up to 379 miles and a peak charging rate of 250kW. It’s also capable of bidirectional vehicle-to-grid charging and features a heat pump as standard.

The car’s rakish profile is reminiscent of a stretched Volvo C40 Recharge, while aerodynamic touches include air channels at the front of the bonnet, plus a raised spoiler at the top of the tailgate.

The materials used inside Polestar 3 have been selected for their sustainability credentials. These include bio-attributed MicroTech, animal welfare-certified leather and fully traceable wool upholsteries.

“Polestar 3 is a powerful electric SUV that appeals to the senses with a distinct, Scandinavian design and excellent driving dynamics,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. 

“It takes our manufacturing footprint to the next level, bringing Polestar production to the United States. We are proud and excited to expand our portfolio as we continue our rapid growth.”
