In a recently-released teaser image, German automaker Audi has indicated that it will be unveiling an e-tron electric supercar ahead of the scheduled September 2018 launch of its much-anticipated e-tron Quattro all-electric SUV.

The e-tron electric supercar will be called the ‘Audi PB18 e-tron.’ The vehicle will be unveiled on August 23, 2018, on the Laguna Seca racetrack, at the 2018 Pebble Beach Car Week in California.

According to an explanation given by Audi, the name of the upcoming e-tron electric supercar ‘Audi PB18 e-tron’ is an abbreviation referring to the ‘Pebble Beach’ venue and the year of unveiling of the vehicle. Audi also added that the solutions for various details of the e-tron electric supercar have been inspired by the technology of the vehicle it evidently recalls --- the LeMans-series winner Audi R18 e-tron.

In addition, Audi has also revealed that Audi PB 18 e-tron’s styling has been developed at the new Malibu Design Loft. As per the automaker, the prototype of Audi PB18 e-tron will essentially be used as a “design study for a puristic sports car of the future.”
