It looks like Audi is finally dumping their Taiwan partners as of next year.
This is great news for Audi enthusiasts because the current partner Taigu has been holding back on anything they see as unprofitable - i.e. pretty much everything except the A3, A4, couple of S models and the old TTs.
When I spoke to the Taichung Audi dealer one of the sales girls said the Germans were pissed off at their image being tarnished by shoddy repairs and a poor model line-up.
So no doubt next year we will see a few R8s on the road which will be pretty cool. Also they are definitely bringing over the TT-S next year which is a very very tempting sports coupe for Taiwan.
I wonder how well it will work out and how many other marques will follow suit…
