The Audi Cabriolet is also here at the San Francisco Auto Show, open
this week.  Also there is the Audi S4, and various 90 and 100 models,
including the new 100 wagon.  Audi has a nice booth this year just to
the left after you enter.

This month's _Sport's Car International_ magazine (Nov 1992) has a review
of the Audi S4, and an article about Jay Mays, the American Audi designer
whose team did the Audi Avus.  He has some very interesting things to
say about car designs.  Check it out.
