Unfortunately it most likely won't look anything like that when it's out to production... Looks like they're gearing up to compete with the new Lexus hybrid!

Oh I know and I know the engine isn't THE most powerful, but it looks fantastic, and I have yet to drive a BMW I haven't loved. Plus being hybrid, the MPG will be good.


I'd actually prefer them to release the M1 concept. That thing is ridiculous and I love it!

Yes, but already all knew there was something wrong with you

Idk, I'm a big sports car and muscle cars fan as well. Especially since I haven't had time to wheel, and with where i live, I don't mind driving small cars.

Actually I wouldn't mind driving a small hatchback either, which is what I'll probably be in next when I move...

I made a thread a long ass time ago when it was first announced and I was surprised because a good amount of people didn't care for it. Oh well, different monkeys, different nuts.

I'd never trade my Tacoma in for any car but I think fun hybrids like that are going to save the gas engine. I wouldn't mind it as a second vehicle if I could afford it

Why don't car companies make even just limited edition runs of their concept cars? There are a lot of wealthy people out there who would buy this!

Some do for testing but I've never heard of them being sold.
