Allegedly Official Sketches of Audi e-Tron Spyder Concept with Diesel-Electric Hybrid Drive

These reportedly official sketches showing a drop-top version of Audi's e-tron Detroit concept (see here) have been making the internet rounds in Germany. Named the e-tron Spyder, the new concept model is said to make its first public outing at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September.

The reports from Germany go on to say that unlike the coupe variant which only made use of two electric motors producing a combined output of 204-horsepower, the Spyder model runs on a hybrid (parallel) system incorporating a mid-mounted 3.0-liter V6 TDI diesel engine driving the rear wheels through a DSG transmission and a pair of electric motors turning the front wheels.
