The internet is abuzz with rumors that Audi won't build an RS4, but a new report is indicating that isn't correct.

According to, a source has confirmed the company will launch an RS4 Avant in the third quarter of 2012. Interestingly, the insider said "do not assume'" there will be a sedan variant. This seems to make sense because our spies have only caught an RS4 Avant and the RS5 would likely steal sales from an RS4 sedan.

Regardless, the model is expected to feature a 4.2-liter V8 engine with 450 PS (331 kW / 444 hp) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. It could be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, but nothing is official as of yet.
