While we have yet to see a production model, BMW’s newly formed “i” sub-brand continues to expand its range of concept cars with a third study for a roadster version of the i8 Coupe. Given the close relationship with the coupe model, it’s very likely that the i8 Spyder will receive the green light for production with a market launch to follow within the next two to three years. The i8 Spyder will make its world premiere at the Auto China Show 2012 in Beijing in late April.
While it shares its basic platform architecture and plug-in hybrid powertrain with the coupe, the Spyder is a strictly two seater model and has a slightly shorter wheelbase and overall length. Other changes include the solid doors, which keep the ‘butterfly’ design swiveling upwards, the new colors and materials inside, and the redesigned rear-end that now features a transparent engine cover.
