I've heard that rumor before, too.
I hope these rumors are true because a sports car/engine manufacturer as good as BMW should show the world what they are capable of when the restraints are removed.
I will believe it when I see it.
Another month, another BMW supercar rumor that won't materialize.
Since the Z8 stopped production we get rumors of Z10/M10 every year.
I heard it will be using a v6. lol
last i heard a fusion reactor was still on the table for a possible powerplant option.
^flux capacitor more like. lol
They are speculating of course but everybody knows in the industry that BMW are holding off until CFRP becomes more flexible in cost effective ways before embarking on a Sports car and that the car involved is purely being discussed.
Late to the party? of course, but BMW would rather have the advantage of material technology at a much lower cost and without a razor-thin profit margin. It all conforms to the previously discussed M-One strategy on how such a car can be conceived with an advantage in material technology for the cost allowing a car to be more exotic in material technology whilst undercutting its rival in price and development costs.
As announced BMW M and BMWi are sub-brands and will both receive their own initial concepts. Which you have already seen with the BMW i3 and BMW i8. BMW's sport car focus currently lies within the BMW i8 - A Sports car for a new generation, so currently that is the only sports car that is heading for production with both the i8 Coupe and i8 Spyder.
At the current time M are focused on the M3/M4 and also sign off models such as the M3(E92) and a limited X6M aimed at its key markets.
Scott, why doesn't BMW explore the idea of an aluminum chassis, like Audi?
Guess they did with the Z8.
Whatever happens, I just hope the next (or first) BMW supercar doesn't look anything like the M1 or M1 Hommage! Just don't like this design.
And besides, I think the design as posted by SKY is far too cheap and common looking for a car that is supposed to cost more than 250k Euro in Germany.
They are probably waiting for a not too expensive CF frame. That would make an alu one old and heavy.
Glad to know I'm not the only one who dislikes the M1 design.
Nah, I think quite a few aren't waiting for a rehash of an old design that has never been hot in the first place.....well....maybe in the '70s....
Any way, I strongly believe this is not happening any time. BMW won´t produce a supercar like this.
From initial sketches... Both M-One and Two inherit ideas from the Vision Connected Drive. You might see the Vision Connected Drive Concept appear again this time with a roof. Just as the i8 removed the roof.
The rendering is a little constrained, The M1 Hommage must be about five years old now, that car was exactly what it was...a Hommage, nothing else...
What again is the idea of m one and m two....mid engined or what ?
