Jason's response is a bit off the mark, IMO. Essentially no '91 200q20V
cars (with engine code "3B") were ever "made in '91". The 200q 20V model
was actually made starting in March1989 ( for '90 model year) and stopped
on or about 11/90. However the _only_ 200q20V cars exported to the United
States were from the '91 model-year (1990 production).

I don't know exactly what Jason meant to imply by "it was the spin off car
for the new S4 which had the same engine." In the '92 model year (for the
USA), the S4 became the successor to the '91 200q 20V. It had a new
chassis, suspension, tranny, ignition system and a modified engine
(designated AAN rather than 3B).

The '95 S6 (what? "made in the US"?--what could you have been thinking,
Jason?) is essentially identical to the previous S4 models, but the
late-'95 versions of S6 did have some significant quattro-differential
