The BMW i8 Spyder concept was announced back in 2012 and now it looks like BMW plans to put the car into production.
The car is a convertible version of the BMW i8 and BMW has apparently no confirmed that they will make the car.
BMW’s Harald Krueger recently confirmed to German publication Handelsblatt that BMW are planning to start making the BMW i8 Spyder, although no details on when this might happen have been revealed.
When the concept i8 Spyder was revealed back in 2012, the car feature removable roof panels, whether this will be in the production version of the car remains to be seen.
What is more likely is that the i8 Spyder will get some design changes from the original concept and will probably come with an electric roof.
There is also the prospect of there being some changed to the powerplant in the new i8 Spyder and there are rumors of a 2.0 litre turbo engine to go along with the electric engine to five the car around 450 horsepower.
As soon as we get some more details on exactly what BMW has planned for the convertible version of their i8 we will let you guys know.
