Retro Cars Wiki

Audi's 2-door coupe was originally sold as a 1990 model, as the Audi Coupe Quattro. Three years after the Coupe was discontinued, it was replaced by a limited-production Audi Cabriolet, built on the previous 90 chassis. The car sold through the 1998 model year, and was replaced by the Audi TT (along with the TT Roadster) in June 1999, and the Audi A5 and S5 in 2007. 

Year-to-year changes[]


The Audi 90 2-door Coupe quattro, only sold through this model year, had all-wheel drive, a 5-speed manual, and a dohc 20v I5 with 164 hp.

No 2-door coupes or convertibles were manufactured in 1992 or 1993, as everything sold during those model years were 4-door sedans and wagons.


The new 2-door convertible, called the Audi Cabriolet, was introduced this year, with Audi's corporate 172 hp sohc 2.8 V6.


The Cabriolet convertible remained unchanged except for the addition of new colors and the availability of a blue top.


Minor changes were made. Most noticeable were the 10-spoke alloy wheels that replaced the 90's 5-spoke wheels.


The Cabriolet was discontinued in 1998, although sales remained current through mid-1999.
