As usual, I love every single shot. Nice work on variety and quality! That Octavia rally car picture was especially great; that jumping fan made me laugh.

Awesome pics, even though there were no Alfas! I am partial!

So the S4 WAS the S6? interesting…

yes, the original S4 was based on the 100/A6, not the 80/90/A4.

but the RS4 was based on the 80, right?

You might be thinking of the RS2 (1994-1995, I believe), which was based on the Audi 80 Avant (B5 series). Actually, it was a joint venture with, and assembled by, Porsche. The RS4 from about 2000-onward have been based on the Audi A4 (B5-B8 series sedans and avants).

nailed it. bizarre that they’d base the RS”2″ on what would become the A4, and the S4 on what is would be the A6. :S

Both the RS2 and Ur-S4 were on the market before Audi started using the A-series model names in the mid-90′s. Looking back on it now, you’re right, it’s confusing.

Of course, that leaves me wondering how they came up with the model naming strategy for the original S2, RS2 and S4. I understand the “S” for “Sport” and the “RS” perhaps for “Racing Sport” (I’m just guessing here), but then where did the 2 and the 4 come from?
