Based on last year's i8, the new BMW i8 Spyder Concept ($TBA) takes the company's experimental hybrid line to new heights with a two-section folding roof, upward-opening doors, and slightly updated — and improved — looks. Other features include a 131 hp electric motor to drive the front wheels, a 223 hp turbocharged gas three-cylinder powering the rear wheels — a setup that allows for front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive, as well as 78 mpg fuel economy — 50:50 weight distribution, a 0-62 mph sprint of five seconds, a top speed of 155 mph, and copious use of lightweight materials. Did we mention that it also sports two electric scooters under the rear glass panel? Like we said, it's a concept.
We wouldn't call it pretty — in fact, it's pretty far from it — but that doesn't make us want the Jeep Mighty FC Concept ($TBA) any less. Based on the Jeep Forward Control of the '50s and '60s, the Mighty FC features a full-length cargo box, minimum overall length for superior maneuverability, a cabin that sits atop the front axle, Mopar Portal Axles, a Corsa stainless steel exhaust, a Warn winch, and looks so burly they make compact pickups weep.
We have no idea if it will ever make it into production, but if you're a fan of the old school looks of the Morgan Electric Plus E ($TBA), you should certainly hope so. Powered by a 94 hp Zytek engine, the Plus E features a five-speed manual gearbox, a convertible top, a range of 120 miles, a 0-62 mph time of six seconds, and a top speed north of 110 mph.
