    After getting a chance to drive the BMW M235i earlier this year, we mentioned our regret at not being able to sample the lighter and less powerful 228i Coupe. We'd like to have seen how close the latter could get to the former, noting that "there's a lot of room for upgrades with the $11,000 retail difference." BMW is closing that performance gap ...

    New York: 2015 BMW Alpina B6 Gran Coupe challenges the M6 in New York
    1397676060

    Despite being a well-respected outfit for decades, Alpina remains something of a mystery to many stateside BMW fans.

    1397482200

    The economic downturn wrought devastating effects on motor racing. Formula One alone lost half its engine suppliers when Honda left at the end of the 2008 season, and both BMW and Toyota followed at the end of 2009. But things are looking up again. Cosworth may have dropped out this season, reducing the engine suppliers to three: Ferrari, Renault and ...

It would only be available in brown and would somehow be as fun to drive as a Mazda MX-5 Miata. Makes total sense, right? Realistically, no manufacturer is ever going to completely ...
