Did Audi just tease a U.S.-bound station wagon?

Or was its social media team having a little bit of fun?

Audi posted an enigmatic message on its official Twitter account which suggests it might add more station wagons to its American line-up. The company humorously suggested getting them here might require a little bit of black magic, however.

The German automaker's social media team surfed the summoning circle wave that's currently sweeping across Twitter. Users arrange 12 candle emojis in a circle, and write what they want to summon in the middle of it. Some users asked for a winning lottery ticket, a brand-new car, or a new season of Lost. Audi placed "Avants in the U.S." in its summoning circle.

The company has remained quiet since since, so we don't know whether it's the beginning of a teaser campaign, or merely a fun post written to capitalize on a trend. Audi hasn't seriously indicated it wants to sell more station wagons in the United States in the past; it seems content to offer the A4 Allroad here, where crossovers and SUVs reign supreme, and leave the A4 Avant and the A6 Avant (pictured) to buyers outside of America. However, a top Audi of America executive hinted the division hasn't completely ruled out selling high-performance RS wagons.

If Audi is indeed preparing to release a new station wagon, we could see it in the metal during the 2019 New York auto show.
