This is "Alarm für Cobra 11 - Die Autobahnpolizei," a schlocky, popular German TV serial about a two-man highway patrol. Somehow, the show got its hands on what appear to be a BMW M1 Procar and a 1970 Porsche 917.
The BMW M1, like Sasquatch, is something people just want to believe. Have to believe. And now someone's saying it'll happen once again. We're waiting for the blurry photos because one day it'll be true.
You know you're in the Malaise Era when the best quarter-mile times for the wildest street cars money can buy are barely into the 14s. But still, who doesn't want an '81 Aston Martin Volante or BMW M1?
We've seen this exact BMW "M1" and its disguised carbon roof and huge fenders before, but we haven't seen it in motion on video. Bridge to Gantry spied it testing on the Nurburgring. Insert scalded pregnant cat metaphor here.
