There are strong rumors once again that BMW intends to build something like last year’s Vision EfficientDynamcs concept (above) as a hybrid, now to be called the M8, with more than 600 horsepower. Instead of diesel power, they’re now saying a gas engine plus two electric motors and a 31-mile all-electric range. And speculating 0-62 mph in 3.8 seconds.
The original concept was always just that—a base for developing advanced technology—but now MotorAuthority reports that BMW may well develop a two-seater based on the Vision ED and the M1 Homage of 2008 (see image after the break).
And they may well actually produce this thing in 2013, in quantities of 5,000 to 10,000 at a “reasonably affordable” price.
