It'll be a cool car, but I think the hype around this car is already getting out of hand, and it seems to me there will be some inevitable "WTF?" when details are released. I am sure BMW can find customers for this. However, I just don't get the feeling it is a game changer like the Megacity is shaping up to be. But, I am going to hold off passing too much judgment until more information trickles out in the coming years.
That depends what it weighs. If it's a real 4-seater under or around 3,000 pounds with a 300hp drivetrain it's going to define its own segment, because there's nothing else out there like that. I get the feeling that this one isn't going to be another F01 platform engineering exercise like half the BMW lineup has become lately.
