Earlier this year it was reported that the A9 would actually be a four-door coupe that would have competed with the Porsche Panamera and Mercedes-Benz CL. But now according to German car magazine AutoBild, the A9 will actually be a two-door coupe with a “modern design” and will be over 5 meters long. Either way the A9 is going to use a aluminum space-frame like the A8 and will get its main components from the MLB architecture (Modular Longitudinal Architecture).
The A9 isn’t expected to be released until 2014 and will be powered by a new 4.0L V8 that is currently being developed in addition to the V6 and V8 engines currently offered in the A8.
