Putting aside the whole EV angle the i8 does look rather georgous!
Looks even better in person.
I think it is a fantastic looking machine. I was lucky enough to get a seat in one at a pop up BMW store in a shopping centre not that long ago.

However, ever since I saw a review that mentioned that the rear looks like it is eating a Porsche 911 (or spitting it out, depending on your point of view) I can't help but think about that when I see one!! The Porsche "back end" is even a different colour from the bumper!!

See what I mean?

Off topic, but I'm really not happy about the new BMW model number scheme.

So the 1 series coupe is now the 2 series coupe. The new Front Wheel Drive MPV is the 2 series active tourer. o_O

They are entirely different cars on different platforms.
Clearly someone needs to invent a new number between 1 and 2. On second thoughts BMW are already using imaginary numbers -- that's why it's called the 218i...

MINI Traveler would had been fine.


As posted elsewhere, a PHEV version is rumored.

With a body like this, there certainly could be room for a decent sized battery.
