Thumbs up BMW sports car concept to be unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show in September!

This just in:

Dr. Klaus Draeger, member of BMW's board of management has told AutoTelegraaf, the dutch auto news site, that BMW has plans to debut a sustainable sports concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2009. According to Dr. Draeger, the sports car concept will feature "sustainable design and material elements."

If past reports are any indication, this upcoming sports car concept may be used to study the viability of creating a 2 seater sports car which showcases BMW's latest environmental technology (such as lightweight materials, stop-start systems, regenerative braking systems, direct injection, etc.). Word is a limited production run could possibly start sometime in 2012.

Music to our ears! Could this be the answer to what BMW fans have been kicking and screaming for... a possible Audi R8 and Mercedes SLS AMG fighter? We'll see
