I think an examination of history would suggest
otherwise.  Take for instance, the '92-'95 ur-S4.
In late '99 prior to the 2.7TT S4 reaching the US,
the urS4's were running $22-25k for clean stock
examples (I was seriously considering one before
deciding to take the plunge for the new one).  Once
the 2.7TT started shipping here, prices on the old
ones plunged.  Today, clean examples can be found for
$12-15k.  And the inventory of the urS4 is much
smaller- fewer than 3000 were sold (source-
http://www.urs4.com).  I can't find any reference
to actual quantities of the new S4, but I remember
seeing numbers in the 10's of thousands.  (If anyone
has a link to actual figures, please post it).

Even the extremely rare '95.5 S6 Avant can now be
found for around $20k, whereas they were closer
to 30k prior to the new S4 and S6 Avants shipping

So my guess is that prices on our beloved V6 biturbos
will drop when the new V8TT hits our shores.  I don't
like it either, but thats life.  Just drive your
car and enjoy it.
