Nailed it: Atlas Cross Sport Shown Off in NYC


By: Sebastien Bell
The first Atlas variant is here, albeit in concept form. The five-seat Atlas Cross Sport concept is a “near-production concept” of a shortened, coupefied Atlas that Volkswagen intends to start building next year.
Part of the company’s well-publicized effort to double its market share in America, the Atlas Cross Sport is a specifically American product.
The ACS concept shares a wheelbase with its big sister and namesake, the Atlas, but is a full 7.5 inches shorter—hence the fewer seats. As well as being shorter in overall length, the ACS concept also gains a plug-in hybrid system that apparently makes 355 hp in concert with VW’s VR6 engine.
The concept, says VW, is powered by two electric motors. The front motor makes 54 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque, while the rear motor makes 114 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. This, they say, is good for a 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds (which would beat a GTI off the line and might make a Golf Rdriver sweat).
Of course, this is all concept stuff and VW has argued that there isn’t enough incentive to sell plug-in hybrids in America. Its press release makes a point of mentioning a mild-hybrid system, though, which would include a 48-volt electric system that could power a supercharger, as in Audis.
This system eliminates turbo lag and fitted to the V6 would be good for 310 hp. That system isn’t currently available on any American VWs but is on its way to customers in Europe, which might explain why the ACS’s grille is so different from the Atlas.
With the full, pouting lips of the Jetta, the ACS shares something in common with the Chinese SUVs VW showed off at the Touareg’s debut. That said, it does have a flavor all its own and will be built in Chattanooga, alongside the Atlas and the Passat.

Porsche Clarifies Status of the Electric 911


By: Matt Posky
Rumors of an electrified Porsche 911 have been circulating for months —  and were eventually confirmed when CEO Oliver Blume claimed the forthcoming plug-in would be the “most powerful” version of the sports coupe the company has ever built. This, of course, stoked new rumors that automaker might decide to make the 911 a fully electric model.
Porsche wants to put those ideas down before they get out of hand. At the company’s annual results conference in Stuttgart, Blume clarified that the 911 would eventually yield a plug-in variant but would never be purely electric. While we advise all automakers to never say never, Porsche does seem to feel as if a battery only edition of the 911 is preposterous. The CEO even warned that the high-performance hybrid wouldn’t appear until some time after the 922 generation had already been in production. “We are waiting for the further evolution in batterytechnology so you should not expect a plug-in version in the coming years. It’s currently planned when the 992 is refreshed,” he said.
The next generation of the 911 isn’t slated to arrive until 2020, meaning any chance of a pure-EV model would require the automaker to change its mind and then start development on what would likely be an entirely new car. But, according to Automotive News, that doesn’t mean Porsche hasn’t considered going full-battery on other models.  The brand is still considering whether to build a full-electric version of its 718 Boxster and Cayman.
“We launched the 718 Boxster and Cayman in 2016,” Blume explained. “We are not yet at the point where we have to decide how things will progress,”
More electrification is assured, however. Porsche wants 25 percent of its global sales to be comprised of electrified models by 2025. The all-electric Mission E sedan launches next year but we’d expect the majority of that volume to come from hybridized versions of the Panamera and its popular SUV.

Aaaaaaaaaand Audi Denies that the V6 R8 Exists


By: Sebastien Bell
“There is no V6 planned for the R8,” or at least that’s what an Audi spokesperson told Road & Track earlier this week.
The assertion is in direct contrast to reports and rumors that have been circulating around the web about a 2.9-liter V6 R8 premiering at the New York International Auto Show.
The rumors’ origins, though, can be traced back to 2015 when Roland Schala told Top Gear that a V6 would fit rather nicely into the second-gen R8. Following the discontinuation of the V8, people have been waiting for a model to fill its shoes.
With Audi’s step away from dinosaur-based performance toward kite-and-key-based performance, the brand seems to have lost interest in the R8. Peter Mertens, head of R&D, even admitted that there are no plans for a follow-up to the R8.
While it might sound easy to shove the RS5’s V6 into the back of the R8, it was only ever designed for a V10, so even if there were plans for it at one point (which there’s evidence of) the development budget might have been moved over to one of Audi’s many e-Tron models following dieselgate.
As for Audi Sport, they’re busy working on their five new models, many of which we’re expecting to be SUVs.
Don’t cry for the R8 quite yet, though, because although Audi appears to have lost interest in funneling money into it, they certainly aren’t killing it any time soon. As Mertens said, the R8 “has a long life” ahead of it.

2019 Volkswagen Arteon Gets Sporty R-Line Package


By: Jason Siu
Volkswagen has announced the R-Line appearance package for the 2019 Arteon.
Set to be introduced at the 2018 New York Auto Show, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon R-Line features performance-inspired design enhancements for the exterior and interior. On the outside, the Arteon receives R-Line badging, a unique front bumper that incorporates stylish air intakes in a gloss black finish, R-Line air inlets and cover panels, and a gloss black rear spoiler. Buyers have the option of choosing between unique 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels.

Inside the cabin, an R-Line logo appears on the start screen of the infotainment system, while contrast stitching can be found on the steering wheel and shift knob. Other features from the R-Line package include steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, metallic decor pieces, black headliner, stainless steel sport pedal covers, and stainless steel door sills with the R-Line logo.
Although pricing was not announced, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is set to go on sale this fall and the R-Line package will be available at launch. All models are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The company’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system is available as an option on every trim level.
