There are cars that are faster, more practical or more efficient, but there’s really nothing quite so in your face as the BMW i8, without spending supercar money. Nor is there anything right now with a sports car skew that rolls together the kind of technology automakers will be forced to adopt thanks to the tightening emissions regulations of the future.
Innovation is what BMW i is all about, after all. Whether you choose to do that in a Coupe or a Roadster is irrelevant. What matters is that the i8 represents good, clean fun that you can have right now instead of waiting for the future to arrive.
