Why Was That?!

And speaking of 4000 turbo quattros... Why didn't they make one, from the
company, that is?  And why not a turbo Coupe?  I would have thought this
would have been a evolutionary necessity for the CGT line.  Was it
because of the 60 Minutes fall out, and the resulting monetary losses
Audi incurred?  It's not like they'd have to drastically change the
tooling to fit a turbo motor they already have into a frame that could
obviously hold it.  All the Japanese GT cars had turbo powerplants at the
time, and so did a bunch of American "wanna-be" GT's.  For God's sake,
they gave the Colt a Turbo!  Does anybody know why?  

Love, Like, or Just Plain Tolerate,
