The arrival of the Audi PB18 E-Tron has opened the floodgates on surrounding the R8’s future. The latest whispers indicate that while the R8 will not return for a third generation, the name will soldier on as part of an all-electric supercar that will have as much as 1,000 horsepower at its disposal. There’s no timetable for the electric supercar’s release as the current R8 is just about to start its mid-cycle refresh. If the R8 E-Tron happens “again,” it’s unlikely to arrive at least until the next decade, possibly around 2022.
