The e-tron will be powered by three electric motors, which share a similar underpinning to Porsche's upcoming Mission E. Two of those motors will drive the rear wheels, while the third will power the front. If the E-tron uses a similar set up as their quattro concept, then we can expect the car to offer around 496bhp. This will make it capable of a 4.5 second 0-60 sprint and a top speed of 131mph.

That powertrain should apply well to the upcoming Audi R6. I hear its supposed to be based off the 911's platform. Here they have the chance to create a fast, agile and powerful GT/Sports car.

I don't believe that Audi has confirmed the R6 as of yet, though they will have to fill the gap that the R8 will leave behind when it goes out of production. Hopefully whatever cheaper model takes it's place, see's better sales numbers than the R8 did.

R6 won't do it. Essentially what it will be is a luxurious and torquier version of the 911. I'll be surprised if they do more than that because they don't. Its everything a lot of people wanted from the 911 but can't reasonably expect from Porsche.
