Description

Sports cars come and sports cars go, but only a few live on as true design icons of our time. The BMW i8 is one such car, but after nearly seven years in production, the i8's time has come, and 2020 will see the final i8 Roadster roll off the production line, bringing down the curtain on BMW's iconic carbon fiber hybrid sports car. It's had a good run, though, and with 369 horsepower on tap from a 1.5-liter turbo three-cylinder and plug-in hybrid system, a quick run from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds could hardly be described as a sub-par performance. But when the world is hurling sports cars at you in the form of the Acura NSX and Porsche 911, you need to look to the future. The i8 Roadster has been one half of an exceptional engineering exercise for BMW - wading into the electric world in a meaningful manner - but with times rapidly evolving, so too must BMW. In 2020, the stylish i8 Roadster is no longer a competitive sports car, but it certainly won't be forgotten any time soon.
