Report: Is the Audi RS3 coming stateside?

Audi enthusiasts site,¬†Fourtitude, reports that Audi could be bringing an RS3 sedan to our shores, which sounds like they’re just making the S4 completely pointless from a performance standpoint.

According to the report, Audi of America employees gathered in Maryland for a meeting, where sources were able to provide some hints at to this possibility.

Should this happen, the RS3 sedan would use the European hatch’s 2.5L turbocharged five-banger with around 367hp and 324 lb-ft of twist. Sitting in the transaxle is a seven-speed automatic with quattro all-wheel drive. The estimated result: 0-62 in just 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph or 174 mph.
