BMW Making Plans To Release A More Powerful i8

Last week we mentioned how the i Division was facing some uncertainty over its future, today that changes as Alexander Kotouc, head of product management for the BMW i division discussed some potential changes coming to future i8 models.

“I can tell you at this point we are still evaluating it; the i8 is the iconic sports car of the new era,” said Kotouc, “There is a customer need and desire to have more power and we will try to fulfill it while also keeping our DNA authentic,” he added. “You could put a V-12 in there and it would be incredibly powerful but would it still be a BMW i car? We need to find the perfect balance.”

These are welcome words for everyone who is a fan of the beautiful i8, I personally welcome it and can’t wait to see a 400 or 500 horsepower edition to show up at BMW showrooms.

Question is when?
