BMW Wants In On Designing Four-Year Old's Car

Illustration for article titled BMW Wants In On Designing Four-Year Olds Car

The other day on Jalopnik we posted about an uncle who asked the greater Jaloposphere for help in designing his four-year old nephew's dream car. Eli, the little automotive visionary, specified 42 wheels, 19 Porsche engines, and that it had to be a BMW.


BMW isn't run by fools, and they want in on this lucrative four-year old "Eli" market, badly. So, on their Tumblr they featured one of the submitted drawings (nice job, claiborne) and stated that BMW would soon be submitting a sketch of their own.


I'm guessing they've pulled all their designers of all current projects to draw these, and from that pool they'll select the best one. The worst one will probably end up fired. That's just how it goes.

No comment was made on the stipulation that all 19 engines be sourced from Porsche.

I would also like to add that I don't get it. I see 11 wheels. 11 on the other side makes 22 wheels. If the wheels are like in a dualy, it would make 44 wheels. That means two wheels will remain single. #foreveralone

It is a roadster, so I am guess it will make it a Z series - Perhaps BMW Z5,000,000i? I expect see at least a dozen fender vents on each side incorporated flame surfacing design. I don't know if there will be a Z5mM version (Z5million M version) as I am not sure about M tuned Porsche engines, but sounds like a EPIC idea - Take that! RUF, with your stupid little engines!

However, I fear they might make it an all-wheel drive, diesel (sourced from the Cayenne, maybe? 240hp) sports convertible, with M tuned engine (upped to 300hp, making a total of 5,700hp) and Performance Package, and call it:
