TheBMW i8 stands as one of BMW’s most important releases in recent years, and if a report from Automobile Magazine is to be believed, the second-generation version of the i8 could very well evolve into an all-electric supercar. Consider first what the current iteration of the i8 is capable of. It’s got a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine and a pair of electric motors that combine to produce 362 horsepower. It’s not much for a premium sports car, but it is good enough to compete against an entry-level Porsche 911. Knowing this, BMW appears to be going into overdrive for the second-generation i8 with plans to more than double the output from the incumbent version.
