Welcome to Fourtitude, the complete source for owners and enthusiasts of the automobiles produced by the Audi Brand Group from the latest Audi, Lamborghini and SEAT automobiles to the earliest offerings from Auto Union, NSU, DKW, Horch and Wanderer. This new web publication is the first to offer full coverage of all brands the newly formed Audi Design Group, including the gone-but-not-forgotten Auto Union brands of Horch, DKW, NSU and Wanderer. Fourtitude offers the discussion forums, the latest news, feature cars, technical features, huge photo archives, an events calendar and more, all focused on these cars and the interests of their owners and enthusiasts.
What is “fourtitude”?
The underlying theme of 4 resounds within the Audi Brand Group,
- 4 ring Audi Logo
- quattro all-wheel drive (quattro is Italian for 4)
- 4 brands forming Auto Union
- benchmark A4/S4 models which were instrumental in Audi’s modern resurgence.
The name combines the significance of Audi’s “four” with the word “fortitude,” meaning the strength of mind to encounter adversity with courage. This new word, Fourtitude, captures the very essence of the Audi owner’s personality.
Audi owners choose to do something different by purchasing an Audi. They choose to forego the trendiness of the ultimate driving machine or the three pointed star for what we believe to be a more intelligent choice.
Created by the team behind VWvortex.com, the world’s foremost Volkswagen enthusiast website, our staff are long-time owners and enthusiasts of these fine marques.
Here at Fourtitude, we hope you enjoy Audi, Lamborghini, SEAT and Auto Union as much as we do, and further encourage you to help us build this new website as the best possible source for their owners and enthusiasts.
All of us here at Fourtitude welcome your input. Whether you have a suggestion to improve the site or story idea you would like to see featured on our pages, we look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you – The Fourtitude staff
Fourtitude provides a unique opportunity to reach thousands of passionate motoring enthusiasts every month. Fourtitude readers are educated and are active in a variety of lifestyle activities ranging from amateur motorsports to travel to outdoor activities. All of this, of course, in addition to their primary passion- European cars and motorcycles.
Fourtitude was designed with careful consideration to maximum advertising impact. That means fewer – but better positioned – ad locations than on other automotive sites. All our banner placements are IAB-standard units, and we've designed the pages for future flexibility should preferences change.
In addition to standard ad units, we offer some very unique outside-the-box opportunities, which we would be happy to share with you.
If you are interested in reaching Fourtitude's unique and desirable readership, drop us an inquiry by e-mail at [email protected] One of our staff will be in contact with you to explain all the features, benefits and special opportunities available to Fourtitude advertisers.
