The 2025 Audi RS E-Tron GT Performance will be a new flagship

Hot on the heels of the debut of the 2025 Porsche Taycan, Audi is previewing its version of the updated electric sedan. Just as there is now a Taycan Turbo GT, the Four Rings are putting the finishing touches on a new flagship. It’s called the RS E-Tron GT Performance to echo petrol models such as the RS6 and RS7 Performance versions.

It won’t be as hardcore as the Zuffenhausen model, just as the current RS E-Tron GT isn’t as intense as the Taycan Turbo S. Nevertheless, there will be a power increase over the 637 hp and 612 lb-ft. offered by the outgoing high-end. Audi remains coy on details (it’s a teaser after all) but he shares images of a camouflaged car with ceramic brakes hiding behind those aerodynamic wheels.

The revamped front and rear engines are unlikely to match the Taycan Turbo S’s 938 horsepower, let alone the ferocious Turbo GT’s immense 1,019 horsepower. We know that Audi engineers have made changes not only to the powertrain, but also to the battery for greater range. For reference, the new Taycan with Performance Battery Plus has a usable energy content of 98.6 kWh while the base model gets a net 83.6 kWh battery.

Charging speed is also up, which is no surprise given the latest Taycan can now take 320 kW instead of 270 kW. Furthermore, Audi has developed a new suspension system with four individually active double-valve shock absorbers. This faster-reacting hardware will be adapted from the new Porsche Panamera. In the Audi, the suspension is tuned for greater comfort compared to the sharper Taycan.

Audi plans to reveal the 2025 E-Tron GT later this year. There will be updates across the range as the lower models positioned below the RS and RS Performance will also be changed.
