Can you give us any info on a for sale date here in the United States?

Will this new supercar ever be offered with the S65 or S85 engine?

I would love to see BMW out-hardcore the competition and make my big purchase with them, but this new supercar has some tough competition already out there today that are currently utilizing some incredible naturally aspirated engines!

Thanks for the info!

I wouldn't get your hopes up too much... tomorrow BMW-I make an anouncement.... if it were a supercar with an S designated engine I think you'd be expecting something from BMW M

When i look at Frosty's side profile pic, It suddenly made me think that BMW just pulled out one of their old concept cars(like the Z9) and restyled it with modern day characteristics

Just a thought...

We know that there is a market out there for a BMW X4.

BMW are and want to remain an independent manufacturer and for them to succeed then they need to increase sales, by 2020 BMW hope that they achieve a target of over two million units are sold.

BMW is a diverse manufacturer and it is right that it seeks to embrace customers seeking something different. Something BMW excell in.
The core attributes of BMW remain such as the best driving car in it's segment as a catalyst for the brands expansion towards new markets.

BMW quality does not suffer in the face of increased profit. But engineering costs will be reduced thanks to the substantial investment of developing key modular platforms that work like Meccano or Lego. A single base whereas the addition of modular pieces can increase or decrease length, width or size. Each model is then distinguished by adding the firewall and suspension mounts to suit what model will sit on top.

This also means that additional models could come from one matrix.
BMW is a business and that business has to make money. To say that enthusiasts are brushed aside is quite wrong. BMW do make cars for enthusiasts , otherwise you would not be here.
BMW are more capable than other manufacturers regarding certain things for example- If you take the M3 for example - BMW are the only manufactuer who has the best cost-to-manufacturer ratio for a carbon fibre roof piece for that segment. Audi can not do that neither can Mercedes-Benz without taking the price for the final unit higher than expected.

BMW will be the first manufacturer to produce mass volume CFRP and investment does in part come from sales especially the best selling SAV's.
Aslong as the SAV's continue to bring in money and fund other projects @ BMW. Then BMW will continue to investigate further options.
If BMW is to retain it's independence then it has to investigate and cater for new markets. And so will BMW North America - It can no longer allow enthusiasts and the media to turn it's nose up at innovation and products that can work in every other market .

Radical change is coming.
=100000000!!!

thank u for saving my breath lololol

Cool presentation. However nothing was said regarding an M model of the i8 which leads me to believe it will be a long time before any such information will be allowed out; not to mention an on sale date.

Guess that solidifies that my next sports car purchase will not be a BMW.

If you want to give such information to bring be back off the ledge however, I am all ears SCOTT26...
