Nah, I think it was that Audi was discontinuing the 4kq platform (sedan), while the coupe continued for a bit.
Way I look at it is similar to the 95.5 S6; it really was the next model year, but who wants to spend all that money certifying it for USA sale, when you don't plan on selling many of them?

Lot of work to introduce a new engine management system, dash, etc. to a platform. Since the 4000 sedan was dead (and replaced), and the coupe wasn't ready yet, they continued to develop it a bit.  They even sold it as a quattro (non-turbo, non-flared fenders, not made by hand) for a while over seas.

comparing an 87 4KQ with an 87.5 CGT is not applicable.  I think Audi just
knew that the CGT was the sportier and faster car, and didn't try to keep
the 4KQ faster, for some reason.
