Has the market for the BMW i8 changed?

A 2014 $147,000 Sophisto Grey BMW i8 sold for $140,000 at Barrett Jackson auction just held in Scottsdale, Arizona. Considering many dealers are asking substantially over sticker for the i8, this could mark a big shift in the market. The i8 that crossed the block at Barrett Jackson had 750 miles on the ODO and came… » 1/26/15 11:13am Yesterday 11:13am

Great BMW i3 Super Bowl Ad Reminds Us The Internet Was Once Terrifying

In 1994, the internet was brand new. Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel also talked about it on The Today Show and seemed so perplexed by it that their heads were going to explode. Gumbel literally says "what is internet anyway?" Now, 21 years later, the BMW i3 is the same level of confusing to the former morning show… » 1/26/15 9:28am Yesterday 9:28am

Here Is The Stupid BMW M4 'Review' Video That Got A Valet Fired 

Can you ever really know what happens to your car after you hand over the keys to a valet? Maybe they'll park it carefully and go about the rest of their day; maybe they'll go hoon it into the ground. Or maybe they'll use it to make a bizarre, rambling YouTube "review" that ultimately costs them their job. » 1/23/15 2:10pm Friday 2:10pm

Screw Tesla, BMW And Volkswagen Will Build Their Own EV Charging Network

America fell pretty far short of President Obama's 2011 call to have 1 million electric vehicles on the road by 2015. There's a lot of reasons for this, and a lack of charging infrastructure is one of them. So far Tesla Motors has been leading that charge (sorry for the pun) with their Supercharger network, but today… » 1/22/15 1:30pm Thursday 1:30pm

You Can't Have A BMW 2-Series With A Manual And All-Wheel-Drive

BMW announced that all-wheel-drive versions of their M cars will be available in the near future. What will most likely not be available with these all-weather performance machines, is a manual transmission. That is because BMW won't sell you what may be their best car in the lineup with 3-pedals and AWD. » 1/16/15 4:40pm 1/16/15 4:40pm

2015 BMW 1-Series: Not Quite As Eye-Searingly Ugly As It Used To Be

With the notable exception of the i8, I'm of the opinion that BMW hasn't cranked out a truly good-looking car in a long while. The era of timeless BMWs ended with the E46. And in non-U.S. markets, the 1-Series hatchback was among their chief visual offenders. No longer! With a 2016 refresh, it's far less offensive… » 1/16/15 1:35pm 1/16/15 1:35pm

The Tesla Model 3 Could Lease For About $200 Per Month

Elon Musk announced yesterday that the upcoming Model 3 would be priced at $35,000 before any incentives. This is a tall order and I am skeptical if Musk can actually deliver, but if he does, he will drop a bomb on the highly competitive entry level luxury lease market. The Model 3 may even be the cheapest luxury car… » 1/14/15 1:17pm 1/14/15 1:17pm
