A weight balance of 56/44 vs 52/48(335i) doesn't make much sense either.

And just because it looks maybe more sporty(because of more spoilers /skirts and stuff) doesn't make the car more sportscar oriented imo.
I say the S4 is more sportscar oriented because besides the bigger engine than the A4, it has a sports suspension, upgraded rear differential, upgraded dual clutch automatic, summer only tires, aggressive sports seating, upgraded brakes, etc. It is clearly not a typical Audi designed for all weather conditions. It is designed to be a sports car version of the A4 giving up luxury for performance. The 335 can be altered thru options but it isn't the same IMO.
