.. old farts that didn't want to try anything new. Not that I have any strong feelings about it or anything..
Scotty Gee Apr 03, 2012
.. turn of the 20th century. They all said, "there are no roads, no gas stations, no no no...".. Guess what? They were wrong. We don't have the technology yet but we WILL have it eventually and your kids will be glad that you weren't one of..

Better way to power our vehicles. And use, we will still have supercars and dream cars and muscle cars. People that don't want new technology are descendants of those who were riding horses and making fun of the puttering machines (cars) at the..

Kenneth, good point. The change will 100% happen. There's absolutely no way that we'll keep burning gas and oil (diesel) in our vehicles. That technology is well over 100 years old. We've GONE TO THE MOON AND BACK, we can surely come up with a

for those who argue that electric vehicles, plug-in or pure EV, have no future, they indeed are not the answer. what they are, in fact, is a very important stepping stone on the path leading us away from the use of fossil fuels. there are so many options for clean and sustainable fuels, but I doubt that one will be a cure-all answer.

I'm shooting to have my gasoline engines and whatever new tech is out, be it electric or hydrogen ect... The best of both worlds... Unless they outlaw gas or somthing.
Kenneth Williams Apr 03, 2012
Lol some people don't like change. I can see it now, just like the old folks that don't know how to work a computer or a cell phone, the next generation will be those that can't accept change in the automotive world.

It look like a sports car
Pratik Parija Apr 03, 2012
Wow man. The car looks fast yet it's going so slow throughout the video. The sound made me feel as if I am waiting for a Formula 1 car to be zooming by. Lol
Zac D'Anna Apr 03, 2012
Wow i just fell asleep watching that
Jonathan Romero Apr 02, 2012
People thinking that v8 and ect. Engines will live in in the future is like saying we should still keep the old steam engines people use to rely on for everything, JUST accept the truth and MoVE forward already x|..
Jonathan Romero Apr 02, 2012
And to Hank to add to your comment I said electric and "ALTERNATE" engines( implying hydrogen and kind of engines that don't require using only gas) incase people doubts the electric engine..
Jonathan Romero Apr 02, 2012
What you guys live with is doubt Witch is precisely my point why people arnt getting there head out of the dirt, the day we will run out of oil or fossils is the day they'll tell then selves iknew but I didn't care to listen -__-
Hank Austin Apr 02, 2012
Plug in electric cars have no future at all... Everyone will realize how stupid they are for using batteries when they see how much better hydrogen electric systems are... Theres no wait to charge, no battery bricking, less harmful materials and the stuff you're using never runs out... Did I mention the only emission is water?
Jonathan Romero Apr 02, 2012
And to keep legendary car brands alive.. People gotta learn to think outside the box..
Jonathan Romero Apr 02, 2012
Quit dreaming and arguing why gas engines are disappearing, there's a reason why gas prices are up the roof and, and the car industry's including supercar company's are slowly transitioning into new engines, to move forward in engineering..

Wouldn't we then run out of coal? That is where we get our energy from. What do you suppose we do with all of the ICE cars? Hybrid UPS trucks, school buses, semis? There is no freaking infrastructure to support electric cars! There never will be!
Jonathan Romero Apr 02, 2012
Cleaner and more efficient for the everyday driver, the automotive industry's are doing this for a purpose, to move forward in innovating transportation and performance, I love good old V8 brute power engines as much as the other but people need to
Jonathan Romero Apr 02, 2012
NO freaking oil let to power our vehicles then what, have you not realize the potential the new electric and alternate engines posses, they easily have the ability to out run the worlds fastes gas cars (ex: the white zombie car) not to mention
Jonathan Romero Apr 02, 2012
For those of you that always complain about electrics, hybrids and other alternate engine, YOU GUYS need to heads out of the dirty thick smoke and understand that gas!! Engines will GROW EXTINCT REAL SOON! Were gonna come upon the day were there's no

Its more like cruising into the Port of Miami after 1am when everything is closed not the real streets of miami
Terrance Parker Apr 02, 2012
That's seriously the quietest I've ever seen Miami.
Carlton Salmon Apr 02, 2012
Needs at least 6 cylinders to make it sound as exciting as it looks. Right now it sounds like a wheezing milk float!
Naval Kumar Apr 02, 2012
BMW might sell these if they kept the design put a real engine in it and got rid of the 10inch alloys
Scott Whittman Apr 02, 2012
Get rid of the old guy and crap music. Sounds like my parents automatic vacuum cleaner.
Knox Ferraro Apr 02, 2012
That was literally the most anticlimactic video BMW has ever released. And the car, which never tops 35 or goes anywhere interesting, sounds terrible. BMW, what the hell is going on?
Chris Dimattia Apr 02, 2012
Umm...looks like he is going 10mph to conserve battery power while he searches for an outlet. That whine is annoying. 5.0L V10 mounted in the rear please.
Description: The BMW i8 Concept Spyder should, like the coupe, utilize a 170hp electric motor to power the front wheels and a 1.5-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine rated at 223hp to power the rear wheels. When ...

i love its the sexyest car i've ever seen
Terrance Parker Apr 02, 2012
Ready for some different colors...
Carlton Salmon Apr 02, 2012
The sound in the background was tumbleweed! At least it sounded more interesting than the car's whining in the previous clip! Gorgeous looking car though but needs a more exciting powerplant if it's to sell for its intended purchase price IMO.
Josiah Thomas Clements Apr 02, 2012
This video was about as entertaining as watching grass grow...
Knox Ferraro Apr 02, 2012
Just when you think they can't top the dullness of the last video... Next up, the BMW i8 next to some drying wet paint.
Bradley Swfc Wainwright Apr 03, 2012
Where on the further
Phillip B Jong Apr 02, 2012
with the exception of the obstructive shifter; i love all the elements.
Hank Austin Apr 02, 2012
I love it! They did a great job with sticking mainly to the interior on the concept and not dulling it down like most car companies do with their concepts
Chayton Garverick Apr 03, 2012
I swear that when I visited Miami I saw this car.
Kenneth Williams Apr 03, 2012
Yes all black would look good
Corry Payne Apr 02, 2012
they should make one in black
Dylan Bures Apr 02, 2012
No, not swag. Swag is not what you use to describe a car. Modern, beautiful, and sleek work much better.
