(i)mpressive or (i)improbable?

11 Mar

BMW says this car will be ready for 2014. Not ready for car shows but showrooms. The i8 will be a halo car for BMW while introducing the world to a new sub brand. The i lineup are car to show off BMW’s environmental and technological advancements.

The i8 uses a turbo 3 cylinder in front combined with an electric motor out. back. Styling wise the greenhouse design is what BMW calls “layering”. It looks good in rendering and concept but will it actually be ready to sell in such a short time? And can a car like the i8 command the $124k + price it surely will command? Time will tell
