In Reply to: didn't know that. Is the new A4 going to match... posted by play//M3 on May 17, 2001 at 18:50:37:

The new A4 is going to have an all new ~220 hp 3.0 V6 as well as the same 170 hp 1.8Turbo as currently available. No conclusive news on the next S4 which is probably still 2 years away. However, you know audi is going to put 300+ hp in order to keep up with the neighbors (M3).

However, its still FWD with over 60% of the weight over the front wheels. Its still shares the same platform as the VW passat. There are claims that the new platform is significantly more stiff than the current platform, however, we'll have to wait and see.
