Jay Leno puts focus on some retro-inspired BMW bikes
Jul 29, 2014 - 7:21 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Aftermarket, Videos, BMW, Motorcycle, Celebrities, Specialty, Design/Style



Jay Leno puts eight wheels on display this week for Jay Leno's Garage from a quartet of retro-inspired BMW motorcycles. They are the creations of husband and wife team Larry and Carol Romestant, who build each one in their home garage.

Larry is a former aerospace engineer who loves BMW bikes, especially the K models. Now, he's combining... [Read More]

BMW planning six-cylinder i9 hybrid to celebrate centenary?
Jul 28, 2014 - 9:15 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, BMW



On the prospect of a new BMW M1 based on the company's new i8 hybrid, the jury has been in and out so much that we can't even tell which way it's likely to go. However, the latest reports coming in from Germany suggest that BMW may have something else up its sleeves. Rather than make a conventional gas-powered version of the i8, Germany's Auto Motor und Sport says BMW will make a more powerful one.

Tentatively dubbed i9, the hybrid sports car is rumored to pack a six-cylinder internal-combustion engine instead of the i8's turbo three. Coupled to more potent electric motors, it would figure to produce even more than the 357 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque already on tap in the i8, with further weight reductions...

2015 BMW M3 squares off against Alpina D3 in gas vs. diesel throwdown
Jul 27, 2014 - 2:35 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Videos, BMW, Diesel, Luxury



There was a time when diesel meant one of two things: This vehicle's owner either wants to save some money at the pump or needs to haul massive loads. It definitely did not mean that the owner of said machine wanted to drive fast, but that perception has slowly but surely been changing over the last several years, with automakers from Volkswagen and Ford to Audi and BMW offering...

BMW begins restoring Elvis Presley's 507 [w/video]
Jul 24, 2014 - 11:54 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Classics, Convertible, BMW, Celebrities



Imagine the King of Rock n' Roll driving a car and you'll likely picture a pink Cadillac or a yellow De Tomaso shot full of holes. But Elvis also owned a 1957 BMW 507 roadster, and now that roadster is returning home to BMW headquarters.

The 507 was a rare bird, of which only 254 examples were ever made. They were sold mostly to celebrities and royalty, but Elvis Presley was a GI when he bought it while stationed in Germany. The example that he bought had been displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, used as a press car and raced by Hans Stuck (which is how... [Read More]

BMW predicts 2 Series Active Tourer will have 75% conquest rate
Jul 24, 2014 - 4:15 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Car Buying, Hatchback, BMW



In the last few years, BMW has definitively proven that it wasn't a slave to its legacy. In the US, the 3 Series was generally associated with smooth, flat-six engines, but the Bavarian brand dropped a four-cylinder turbo into it. The company was also known for its sports sedans, and it went green with the i3 and i8. Now, rear-wheel drive is off the table as defining its vehicles, as well. With the imminent launch of the 2...

BMW 2 Series Active Tourer corners surprisingly flat on 'Ring
Jul 22, 2014 - 5:36 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Minivan/Van, Videos, Hatchback, BMW, Luxury



With seven seats and front-wheel drive, you might not expect the upcoming long-wheelbase version of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer to live up to the Ultimate Driving Machine reputation that BMW has fostered over the years. But the latest spy clip from the Nürburgring suggests otherwise.

The Bavarian automaker has apparently been testing its new... [Read More]

Watch the BMW M4 drift around an aircraft carrier
Jul 22, 2014 - 5:36 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, BMW



A Nimitz-class American aircraft carrier is big. Really, really big. After all, it has to be, in order to launch and recover a wide array of military aircraft. But when it's not catapulting F/A-18 Super Hornets and E-2 Hawkeyes into the wild blue yonder, what exactly can you use its 1,040-foot long flight deck for? Well, BMW seems to have an idea.

Now, obviously BMW hasn't paid Uncle Sam to convert the deck of the USS John C. Stennis into a racetrack (but what an idea!). That doesn't make this video of an Austin Yellow M4 slipping and sliding its way around the carrier deck any less entertaining. The video itself comes, weirdly considering the US... [Read More]

BMW won't build M4 Gran Coupe
Jul 22, 2014 - 5:36 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Etc., Hatchback, BMW



Over the last few years, it feels like BMW has looked at its lineup and decided to offer a vehicle in every possible segment that it can find, no matter how small. The company is finally showing some restraint, though, at least when it comes to the high performance M division. For example, don't expect to see an M4 Gran Coupe at your local BMW dealer in the future.

M GmbH sales chief Jörg Bartels told Cars Guide in Australia, "It was definitely... [Read More]

BMW confirms new Mexican plant
Jul 22, 2014 - 5:36 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Hirings/Firings/Layoffs, Plants/Manufacturing, BMW, Luxury



After over a year of speculation, BMW is finally officially announcing that it's building a factory in Mexico. The new plant will cost the German automaker roughly $1 billion US and will have a capacity of about 150,000 vehicles a year when complete. However, production won't begin there until 2019.

The new factory is being built near the city of San Luis Potosí, Mexico, with plans to employ about 1,500 people. Unfortunately, BMW is still mum about which models it's producing south of the border. ... [Read More]
