The Verge has this story. Kind of funny though. Yes, Audi will have a e-tron version of the second generation R8, but only upon request. It will have a 92 kWh battery and Audi claims that it can charge in "significantly less than two hours." I am not sure how they are going to do that, I assume they are talking L3 chargers, but who has one of those at their home? Anyway, the car will be slower than the P85D and the R8 V10 version, it will go 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. Claimed range is 280 miles.
I am not sure how this is a Tesla beater since it will be slower than the P85D and probably have only slightly higher range, seat less people, etc. More competition is good I guess. I am sure it will beat the P85D on price though, not the good way though. Silly headline.
