BMW i | Born Electric

with one comment

What an amazing automobile!  Needless to say this in a glance into the not too distant future.  BMW’s new i series, tag name: Born Electric.  Leave it to the engineers at BMW to envision what I drive in my dreams, and bringing to the now.  This carbon fiber and composite computer on wheels will run seamlessly with your smartphone. While taking you where you want to go in style and comfort, without the carbon footprint.  I look forward to the i series hitting the streets, and will be a my local dealer well before the cars are on the showroom floor.

leave a comment »

All automotive enthusiasts should agree that an automobile’s dashboard is where its heart and soul come together, allowing the driver to become one with the machine.  I have always been a Ferrari fan, and was in awe when coming across this photo of a modern Ferrari instrument panel.  It is so true that technologies developed for racing make their way into production automobiles.  This picture above is nothing less than a Formula One cockpit a few years ago.  I found some old Ferrari dashboards so you can get a sense of the evolution that has taken place.

The BMW ART CARS have always been a fascination of mine.  I can remember seeing them as a young lad and wondering what had someone done to these cars.  Now that I am older and wiser I can see the beauty, the history, and the statement these cars make.  Seventeen cars in total, the vision a French race car driver had in 1975 would become an iconic run of masterpieces.  BMWdrives is a great site to visit and view all the ART CARS, and to find out anything and everything there is to know about BMW.

Bavarian Motor Works | BMW | Munich, Germany

with 3 comments

This is mission control for BMW.  I have been a fan of German cars since my teens.  I am a true American, but have always enjoyed the German influence on the automobile.  I have worked for Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, and BMW.  I drive a BMW X5, which was made in South Carolina.  I was friends with a previous CEO of BMW North America, and the founding CEO of Porsche Cars North America,.  He was a big influence on me and the decisions I have made in my life.  I hope to visit this building some day, I’m sure the experience will be surreal.
