Audi R4 axed, A2 delayed - report

According to a recent report, Audi has killed the highly-anticipated R4.

While nothing is official, Auto Motor and Sport says the model was axed because it would steal sales from the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster / Cayman. Furthermore, the Volkswagen Bluesport variant would likely have been too expensive to be competitive.

In related news, the Audi A2 revival has reportedly been delayed until 2016. Details are limited, but Volkswagen wants the car to be built on a group platform instead of a bespoke chassis.
