The all-new Audi A8 has yet to hit US shores but there's talk starting to bubble up about the all-new S8 sedan. Considering they've been building it for years and with the Mercedes-AMG S63 and BMW M760i on the market, the four rings can't rest on its laurels.

So, what should we expect?

According to Autoblog, this is the latest:

Autobild reports that the next-generation Audi S8 will be introduced later this year, and we've pieced together intel from various reports for an idea of what we'll get. Autocar says the coming D5 sedan will get a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 sourced from the Porsche Panamera Turbo, ditching the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that Audi developed with Bentley and put in the current D4 S8. According to the report, the V8 will make 535 hp; that's seven fewer horses than the same engine makes in the Porsche, but 22 hp more than the last standard S8...

Now I am not sure about you, boys and girls, but I'll buy that.

Here's the twist though, Spies. The latest reports hint that there may be something a bit hotter coming down the 'pike. There's suggestions that the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid's powertrain could find itself home in the next-gen S8 as well. The thinking is it will be dubbed the S8 E-Tron and come with around 620 horsepower.

Does this sound appetizing to you? What say you, Spies?
