The famous Group 5 BMW E21 320 Turbo, about to put in some work at Laguna Seca.
The BMW 1 Series hatchback is near the top of my “forbidden foreign fruit” car list. For two generations now, it’s offered hatch practicality with manual gearboxes, potent four- and six-cylinder generations and glorious rear-wheel drive. What’s not to love? Problem is, it was never sold in America—but this one on …
The E36 BMW M3 is a fantastic and attainable enthusiast’s car. Good performance, looks, and according to this owner a factory-claimed official top speed of 155.3 mph. How close do you think it can get to that after 20 years and 130,000 miles?
Well, here’s a fun rumor: BMW is apparently bringing out the big guns for electric vehicles. In addition to updating the i3 and working on a new project called the iNext, BMW might also make the i8 fully electric and very fast. Maybe.
Two years ago Jason and I drove from Austin to the Los Angeles Auto Show in this 228i. This shot, which I rather like, was taken just outside of Fort Stockton, Texas in what most people would consider the middle of nowhere.
BMW has launched a new ad campaign for its 3-Series plug-in hybrid, the 330e, and it’s directly targeting buyers who have either already ordered a Tesla Model 3, or may be interested. The problem is that the campaign is laughably ironic.
I’ve never met Tetsuya Tada, but I can tell you he’s not an idiot. He’s Toyota’s global chief engineer these days, but he was also the man behind the Toyota 86, a wonderful and excellent sports car. Another sign he’s not an idiot: he’s fighting for the Toyota-BMW sports car to be called the Supra.
In honor of the BMW M3's 30th anniversary, the Bavarians will build 500 “30 Jahre M3” (which is German for “30 Years M3”) special edition sedans at over $83,000 a piece. The cars get a bump to 444 horsepower, decorative bits, some pseudo-retro wheels and the resurrection of “Macao Blue,” possibly the greatest BMW…
When he was stationed in Germany during his time in the U.S. Army, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll bought a rare BMW 507 roadster. After bringing the car to the states, it got lost in the shuffle and wasn’t rediscovered until 2006. Now, after decades of sun-fade and rust, the car has been restored back to its original…
How does the old BMW 1M coupe and the current M4 stack up against the shiny blue new BMW M2?
Few marques command as much respect from people who crave performance as BMW, and the M line of cars in particular are some of the most desirable and most powerful vehicles around. However, there’s a closely guarded secret that no respected publication would ever broach, and it’s that all BMW engines are monumental…
The BMW 507 roadster owned by Elvis Presley while he was stationed in Germany has undergone heavy restoration just in time to make an appearance at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and boy is it elegant.
There may be a new Toyota Supra! There may always be a new Supra around, in fact, something we’ve been dreaming about ever since the last one rolled off the Motomachi line in 1998, a rumor with as much lasting power as the one of a mid-engined Corvette. Someday these two majestic creatures will arise from our fevered…
BMW will build a total of 200 “Competition Edition” M5 sedans, 100 black and 100 white, with a substantial power bump and a few tasteful decorative bits. Is it special enough to be a viable investment, or would you rather just take it out and just drive the tires off it?
A 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL puts in some work at Laguna Seca.
To everyone who becomes apoplectic with rage when they heard the words “front-wheel-drive” applied to a BMW, stop it. Right now. This is something that we need here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. and here’s why.
