Ask around, you won't find too many heads crazy about the BMW X6. Yet the brand's uniquely styled "Sports Activity Coupe" is reported to have already sold more than twice its original projections. Hard as that might be to believe, it's a figure that can't be ignored. Acura has already tried to cash in on the appeal, and word has it Audi is next.

Dubbed the Q6 (which is likely to hold true), sources say the new wedge-shaped SUV will be based on the same platform as the VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne, using any number of pre-existing Audi engines under its hood. The rumor goes even further to suggest that a hybrid version may also be in the works—because green makes weird OK, right?

Stay tuned to see if this swan song pans out. Until then, we'll admit the X6 continues to be one of our favorite ugly ducklings on the market.
