Today in China Car History and Spotted in China the Audi A6 Executive, an ultra luxurious variant of the China-made C5 Audi A6. I found this black example abandoned on a parking lot just to the south of the southern section of the mighty Fifth Ring Road. It was dirty and dusty but absolutely savable.
An extremely rare and racy pickup truck based on the China-made C6 Audi A6L, Spotted in China on a car market in east Beijing. The vehicle was a bit dusty but otherwise in a good condition. It was formerly owned by a nearby Audi dealer, when this dealer closed due to a nasty bankruptcy the car was sold to a small repair shop and there it stands today.

Volkswagen is very strong in China but there is reason to worry about the future. They have been so busy adding ever more sedans to their Chinese lineup that they completely missed the SUV boom, resulting in a locally-made line with nine sedans, only one SUV, two hatchbacks, two wagons, and an MPV. Of these 16 cars a whopping 10 are made only for China: cars you cannot get unless you live there. Here they are:
New Spy Shots of a new Volkswagen SUV for China, most likely the production version of the Volkswagen CrossBlue concept. The new SUV will be positioned between the Tiguan and the Touareg, and should not be confused with the T-Prime Concept GTE, which previewed an SUV that will be positioned above the Touareg.
The new Audi A4L debuted today on the Beijing Auto Show, with the new big grille, the lightning-lights, and Audi’s ‘digital cockpit’ dashboard architecture. The Audi A4L is a China-only stretched variant of the Audi A4, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in July.
The new 2017 Audi A4 debuted in January in Detroit, so it is time for the Audi A4L to follow suit. The A4L is a China-only stretched variant of the Audi A4. It gets the same new grille and headlights as the regular model. Debut is scheduled for April 25, the first day of the Beijing Auto Show.
