According to a recent report, Audi is considering additional variants based on the A1.

As one source told What Car, "You've seen how our SUVs have been getting smaller - Q7, Q5, Q3 - and the A1 platform could go in that direction, but nothing is planned for the near future."

The latter comment is interesting, but previous rumors have suggested the crossover could be launched anywhere from 2013 to 2016.

Regardless, the insider said an A1 Cabriolet is unlikely because it would be positioned to close to the A3 Cabriolet.
