Clarification! Re: Question


I referred to the 1990 Coupe Quattro as "A Audi 90 model", Not "THE Audi
90 model", as it was built on the same body frame and used the same
quattro system and 20v 5cyl. motor as the 90cs sport.  I did mention in
my original e-mail that it's just called a coupe, but I was just clearing
up what else the car might be listed under in the classified ads.  A
quote from "The Standard Catalog of Imported Cars:  1946-1990", by James

"Coupe Quattro-FIVE-The hatchback coupe's modified five-cylinder engine
had twin cams and 20 valves, producing 164 horsepower (34 more than the
standard five).  Built on the same platform as the 80/90 sedans, the
coupe also used the same full-time 4WD system as the 80/90 Quattros and
came only with a five-speed manual gearbox."

I've personally owned two Audi coupes, (the one's based on a car called
the 4000 here in the `States), like it says at the end of just about all
my messages to the Q-list.  Not the 2.1l turbocharged AWD ur-Quattro's or
Quattro Sports of rallye fame, but the oversized Sciroccos.  [8^) 
They're great cars.  I aspire to own a 1990-91 Quattro Coupe one of these
days, as well.  I also only give information to the list if I'm pretty
sure I'm right, but I always defer to those that have way more experience
than me.  I know I'm right this time.

The 90 is *NOT* the coupe. The 90 is the small sedan (as opposed
to the 100, 200, and V8's which were the large sedans).

The coupe is called the coupe.
