2021 BMW i4 spied

The upcoming BMW i4 sedan has been snapped testing on the streets of Munich, wearing a silhouette not dissimilar to that of the 4 Series Gran Coupe. Built on the BMW CLAR architecture, the four-door coupe will lob with a driving range of 600km on the tricky WLTP drive cycle. Impressive. It'll hit 100km/h in 4.0 seconds, and keep pulling beyond 200km/h. Production will start in 2021 at BMW's factory in Munich. As for how we know all this? Well, the company has told us. Makes life easy, right?

Porsche 911 GT2 RS topples Road America lap record - video

We know the Porsche 911 GT2 RS is fast. It set a Nurburgring lap record in 2017, lapping the Green Hell in just 6:47.3 with Lars Kern behind the wheel. Lamborghini has since taken it back, but that's besides the point... Now, it's the quickest production car ever to lap Road America. It's a fast track, with just 14 corners in its 6.5km layout, allowing driver David Donohue to average 174km/h throughout the lap. That's fast.
