since they have decided to produce the roadjet (under a different name) "soon." Of course, I'm not talking about my garage but one of you more fortunate individuals. I'll be happy with the Q7 for awhile I'm sure. (but I sure would love to have both).

but it would be a nice balance to offset the Q7 for a family.

There has been no such statement.
Unless you work for AudiUSA in the marketing dept and are trying to 'gauge support' for such a fugly vehicle................

INGOLSTADT -- Audi will build a production version of the Roadjet concept seen at the Detroit auto show earlier this month, according to news reports.
Audi CEO Martin Winterkorn told Automotive News, "A vehicle derived from the Roadjet will be available soon." Audi executives added that it would be positioned as a more upscale car than the current A4 "with a significantly higher price."
The Roadjet is a five-door, high-roof crossover wagon with a high seating position and a body style similar to that of the A3 Sportback. It has Audi's customary quattro four-wheel-drive system and will join two other crossover-style vehicles from Audi: the Q7 and the forthcoming Q5, Audi's planned compact SUV that will compete with the BMW X3 and the Land Rover Freelander.
The Roadjet concept was fitted with a 300-horsepower, 3.2-liter direct-injection V6 mated to a seven-speed DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) transmission. It's unlikely to retain the fabulous but un-Audi-like name "Roadjet." Instead, it'll fit the Audi naming system, which means it could be called "Q3" or "Q4" or even "A5."
