I’m speaking in absolutes because up until now we’ve had no reason to believe otherwise. When BMW announced it would make a line of future-forward cars — their “i-series” — that would be electric (mostly) and change the way we looked at transportation, I imagined millions of the things running everywhere. The BMW i8 would be fantastically addicting in the way it’s a mid-engined sports car that can manage better than 60 mpg and looks like it’s from 20 years from the future. Everyone would want one.
BMW’s M4 has never been about pretty. The car, developed in the mid-1980s is strictly about science above all else, forsaking sentiment about its creator and devoting everything to its creation.
