BMW i Series

We knew it was only a matter of time before BMW got into the electric car game, but we never thought the design of their first models would take the idea so literally. The BMW i Series ($TBA) includes two models that wouldn't be out of place in a sci-fi flick — the all-electric, rear-wheel drive i3 hatchback, which offers 170 hp, seating for four, a top speed of 93 mph, and a 0-60 time of under eight seconds, and the hybrid i8 coupe, which pairs an electric motor running the front wheels and a turbocharged three-cylinder powering the rears for all-wheel drive possibilities, limited range all-electric driving, a 0-60 time of under five seconds, and a perfect 50/50 weight distribution ratio. No word on whether the production models will be as... funky as the concepts.

  • BMW 328 Hommage

    You'd never know it by looking at one of today's tricked out models, but Bimmer's 328 started out life as a svelte sports coupe — a heritage that's being celebrated in the BMW 328 Hommage ($TBA). Created for the 328's 75th birthday, the Hommage is an open-top terror, with a retro meets Mad Max design formed from carbon fiber-reinforced plastic that brings the weight down to 1,720 pounds, and a 3.0L six-cylinder engine that's bound to send the tires blazing.

  • Scion FR-S Concept

    We're pretty sure Scion would have been the last company we'd have expected to announce a front-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car, but then again, that's why they call it a "concept." The Scion FR-S Concept ($TBA) is a throwback to Toyotas past, like the AE86 generation of the Corolla and the 2000GT, meant to bring fun back to the Camry-maker's extended lineup. It's powered by a flat 2.0-liter boxer engine mated to either a six-speed, short-throw manual or automatic with steering- wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and offers plenty of other niceties, including LED lighting around the headlights and taillights, 20-inch wheels, a low center of gravity, and a "dynamically favorable" front-to-rear weight ratio — but enough with the chit-chat. Just make it already.
