Audi Sport, previously known as Quattro GmbH, has just gotten a new Head of Technical Development as of October 1. The name is Oliver Hoffman and he was formerly in charge of powertrain development for Audi Sport, particularly the 5.2 litre V10 for the Audi R8.

Hoffman wasted no time in making known his priority there, which is to introduce five new models to the high-performance line-up by 2020. The Audi Sport stable is currently occupied by 11 models. Details of the three-year plan remain a company secret for now, but we can expect the B9 RS4 Avant to make its world debut soon, and after that the RS5 Sportback, all-new RS6 Avant and RS7 (the new Audi A7 has just been leaked). There are rumours of a new RS4 sedan, RS5 Cabriolet and V6-powered R8 as well.

The RS moniker may also grace Audi’s range of SUVs, starting with the RS Q3 plus sporty versions of the new Q5, Q7 and perhaps the Q8. In fact, high-performance SUVs may well be a future specialty of Audi Sport, Motor1 reports.

Traditionally, RS versions have always been offered when the model is nearing the end of its life cycle. Things have significantly been ramped up in recent years (the RS5 came nine months after the A5/S5 duo debuted in June last year), and the focus now is to bridge that gap as quickly as possible.

Oliver Hoffman, who once worked in quality management at Lamborghini, replaces long-time Audi Sport boss Stephan Reil whose tenure within the division started back in 1999. Reil was involved in nearly every high-performance Audi project, including the first ever Audi RS4 Avant. His subsequent role in Audi remains undisclosed for now.
