Arrow In the Works: Vision Connected Drive as Future ///M Sports Car

They have started a strategy to turn the Vision Connected Drive into a BMW M sports car. Planned for a debut after 2015 , The planned model is expected to be lightweight, powered by a specially massaged Six Cylinder powerplant with double-clutch transmission. And Active-M Tech (more on that in a months time)

The BMW Board saw the interpretation of the Coupe and were blown away.

i8 is one thing - The Vision Connected Drive is another.
Both are being investigated and evaluated for production.
One thing discussed is the Vision Connected Drive being given a "roof" for a future showing to test the water.

Given the 1er/3er matrix is adaptable for mid engine placement is a benefit to the R&D engineers.

The arrival date procedes that BMW will be able to bring and spread costs of carbon Fibre to a more cost effective level when it is in full mass production. But the plan is to bring a more enthusiast friendly approach to a BMW Sports Car. i8 is tomorrow's Vision but not everybody will get behind the wheel . This is for the masses.

It will be a true sports car but it will done the BMW way and no one else's.

wait, a mid engine M car on the 1 or 3 series platform? thats gonna be sweet. I just think the name "Vision Connected Drive" sounds silly at the moment for an M car.

active M-tech...i assume thats the active aerodynamics on the upcoming M5?

thanks scott for making this forum so special with your exclusive scoops!

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Mid-engine sports car, good news indeed. But until then, I'll hold on to my E92 M3. Glad they offer DCT instead of that 8-speed automatic.

Nothing and then everything in one time,but I hope it will be true. Anyway now I feel lost. Does it mean there are going to be three premium "supercars"?

BMW i8: 4 seater eco-sportscar with a TT 2.0l I4 and electric power previously being the Vision Efficient Dynamcis
BMW Z8: 2 seater roadster with a TT 4.4l V8 known as "Spyder California" and presented at Geneva as the Vision Connected Drive
BMW M8: 2 seater lightweight sports coupé with a SPECIAL 6 CYLINDER built as a coupé version of the Vision Connected Drive

And what about the mid-engine 1/3 platform? Entry-level Lotus/Cayman/Audi R4 rival?
