V.I.S.I.T. #8211; Audi 90

While our best scientists try to out where these all went theorize Estonia), let#8217;s all try to what these were all The B4 Audi 80 came out in 1991 and was a heavy facelift of the previous model. While this was called the 80 in Europe, insecure and skittish North American needed a bigger, awesomer one they didn#8217;t associate the dusk of the malaise era or the year invasion of Afghanistan.

Showing commendable restraint, christened it as the 90 in North America, as to what could have well been the 9000, previous naming practices. But already had dibs on that and totally boss model

Needless to say, we got only the option on our 90s, in the form of AC, and nicer-specced interiors. The 90 came a range of in-line fours, as as V6s in top spec. The range topping RS2 we were of course denied, all of its turbocharged inline five so there#8217;s little point in salt in that wound The B4s were quite popular in and are still considered to be stylish transportation in the Baltic states.

And the design of the 90 has aged well, all considered, even though are somewhat boxy viewed today#8217;s eyes.

Having to a number of owners, these are considered in Audi circles to be more reliable than the A4s came later, which may or may not be to some of you.  Additionally, are sort of hard to find I am given the low sales numbers at point in time and the survivability for early-90s Audis in North Which was not all that great.

This example wore a 2.5 TDi which may or may not signal an engine That#8217;s a pretty random to affix to a stateside Audi 90, if it actually have that I believe that badge is off a B5 2.5 L V6 TDI which came out in 1996 and was a torquey thing. But that was only available after the 90 had production, and was not available in the concurrently B3 or B4 Passats or Audi 90s.

A pretty novel swap, if what it is.

While Europe got a couple engines in their Audi Audi decided not to push its in the states following that 60 Minutes unpleasantness. Speaking of it would take till the end of the for Audi to return to an annual level that it enjoyed in prior to that infamous roast.
