18" is the wheel size, not the tire diameter.

As long as the tire diameter is the same, and it fits the hub, it should work and not harm the AWD.

That is made for a 2010 Porsche. So checking Tire Rack to see the tire size.

I think it will harm your AWD system by having a different diameter. You are not even supposed to replace just one tire if you have more tread on it than the others, so I don't see how a completely different tire is ok. If you want a spare, I would use a full-size tire/wheel of the same kind.

Also, as a side note, some tires get hard after 6-7 years in storage. Some don't.

It won't work. The space saver for Touareg, Porsche and pre-2015 Audi Q7 has a bolt pattern 5X130. Newer Q7 uses 5X112 bolt pattern.

Yes, there is space saver tire, it came with my car. Here in Hungary you can order the car with space saver. Your dealer should know the part number.

I can't find it on the website. Can you post a link or a screen capture?
