  • Mysterious BMW prototype spy shots

    Earlier this week, a mysterious BMW 2-Series-based test mule was spotted in Germany. The vehicle was obviously a mule of some sort and not a regular 2-Series because of its much shorter wheelbase, lowered roof and possibly an extended front overhang. The test mule was also fitted with a carbon fiber roof and hood, likely to further lower its center of gravity. But why would BMW engineers be testing a mule significantly smaller and lower than the already compact 2-Series? Perhaps it has something to do with the oft-rumored Z2 roadster, a vehicle we first heard about as far back as 2006. But...

  • BMW Isetta minicar

    For the older European readers out there, the mention of the words BMW Isetta probably conjures up nostalgic images of little, egg-shaped cars trundling around the city, with styling that looked possibly as cheerful and non-threatening as a car could ever get. Built in the 1950s and ‘60s, the BMW Isetta was one of the best-selling minicars of all time, and BMW ended up producing close to 160,000 units in just seven years - but apparently that wasn't enough considering the news that BMW is expected to revive the Isetta brand to sell city cars under once again. The news comes following...
