The I8 is probably the oddity in this list because it does stand out from the crowd in terms of styling. But the electric I8 is more of a halo car than anything. BMW had worked hard to create sports cars that people want to drive. The I8 looks like something out of a movie with its gulf wing doors and futuristic-looking headlights. The overall design of the I8 is carefully crafted to create an upscale-looking car. There is also a convertible version which makes for a pretty cool lineup. But when you compare the exorbitant price of the I8 to other sports cars on the market, you’ll see the discrepancy.
For what it offers, you can get a reasonably equipped Porsche Boxster or Audi TT and get an equally exciting amount of performance for less. Then you have the option of the Acura NSX which is also an exotic car with this type of styling. The I8 is going to be discontinued this year and it’s probably for the better. BMW might have another supercar under its sleeve with more comparable performance and features of the price. The I8 at the moment is more of a status symbol than an actual enthusiast car.
