We Deserve Better Than The Leaked BMW 2 Series Coupe

We Deserve Better Than The Leaked BMW 2 Series Coupe

Supposedly leaked pictures of what could only be the upcoming next-gen BMW 2 Series Coupe unfortunately looks like it’s been attacked with an axe and beaten until swollen.

We love to hate the

2 Series Gran Coupe —a car that’s perfectly fine to drive but not so easy to look at, and its front-wheel drive completely flies in the face of everything BMW once was. That’s why there was so much hope...

You're Probably Going To Have To Look At A BMW X8 Soon

You're Probably Going To Have To Look At A BMW X8 Soon

In a move that has strong “

Fuck Everything, We’re Doing Five Blades Now ,” energy, the once-beloved German performance automaker BMW is further straying from god’s light, if a recent trademark caught by X7forum.com, via Automotive News, is anything to go off of.

BMW has marked “X8 M” for itself, obviously suggesting there are plans to move beyond the current X7 as the SUV lineup’s flagship.

But...

Dealers Are Frustrated The New BMW 8 Series Isn't Selling So Hot

Dealers Are Frustrated The New BMW 8 Series Isn't Selling So Hot

When BMW canceled the

6 Series coupe, convertible, and Gran Coupe, and then sold a car just like it, in every configuration, but with more luxury at a higher price point, the writing should have been on the wall. But dealers are still upset that the current BMW 8 Series isn’t selling so hot. Dead: BMW 3 Series GT, BMW 6 Series GT, BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

BMW just Thanos-snapped its weird...

This Ain't It, BMW

There are explanations for the following now-deleted tweet, yes, but few of them make any sense.

Minutes before this post went live, BMW deleted the tweet, but here is a screenshot:

BMW Is Playing A Dangerous Game

BMW Is Playing A Dangerous Game

Tesla, Ford, GM, Fiat Chrysler, Kia, Hyundai, Mercedes, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, Volkswagen, and Volvo have all announced that they will temporarily suspend production in some form in their American plants to help fight coronavirus. But not BMW. No, BMW is alone in still going full steam ahead.

South Carolina, where BMW’s massive Spartanburg plant is, has not been exempt from...

The Automotive Industry Is Grinding To An Undignified Halt

The Automotive Industry Is Grinding To An Undignified Halt

Toyota, Honda, and the Big Three have shut down manufacturing plants. Mercedes is keeping its Alabama factory open, but it will probably run out of parts. Tesla may or may not be contradicting a legal order not to produce cars, and Ford doesn’t want to sit on a mountain of repossessed vehicles. All that and more in The Morning Shift for March 19, 2020.

BMW M: Why Those Three Colors?

BMW M: Why Those Three Colors?

Welcome back to Friday at Jalopnik which means it is time for Ask A Car Nerd once again, our weekly series where you send in your burning questions and we answer them. Or at least, we try, albeit most times poorly.

This week the question came to us from reader Randy about a subject near and dear to all of our cold, dead hearts: BMW. He asked:

Where did the three colors for M-series BMW come...

BMW's Carbon Fiber M Performance Moto Parts Sure Are Pretty

BMW's Carbon Fiber M Performance Moto Parts Sure Are Pretty

I’ll never forget the time I rode a BMW S1000RR. I legged myself onto the saddle, let it idle half a minute, then opened the same amount of throttle I’d been using to move my 1981 Suzuki GS450. Zoom. “Beemer’s faster,” I realized, after catching my breath and bringing the bike back down to the speed limit.

These bikes are so fast – the 0-60 time is in the mid twos, for godsakes – that I feel...

Here's How BMW Screwed Up Its Logo Redesign

Here's How BMW Screwed Up Its Logo Redesign

As you may have heard, BMW updated its logo for the first time in over two decades, and, since it’s a thing that happened in the world, some people are not happy about it. I can see both sides here; BMW’s logo was due for an update. And while I like some of what’s been done, there’s validity to the criticisms too.

As you know, my job is to solve humanity’s problems, usually via writing crap...

BMW Exec Makes A Great Case For An Electric Pickup Truck They'll Never Build

BMW Exec Makes A Great Case For An Electric Pickup Truck They'll Never Build

BMW has toyed with the idea of a pickup truck (or a ute) plenty of times in the past, but in the latest frustrating tease for a Bimmer with a bed, the head of product management for BMW M claimed an electric truck would be easy to build. You Know They Want This

If you want a glimpse at the future of BMW, don’t look at the hybrid i3 and i8. Don’t look at the…

The BMW Concept i4 Is Our Closest Look Yet At BMW's Main Weapon Against Tesla

BMW’s chief technical officer Klaus Fröhlich

told reporters last year that the upcoming BMW i4 is going to compete directly with Tesla sedans. Up until now, we’ve only seen the futuristic “BMW i Vision Dynamics ,” but thanks to leaked photos, we now have a look at the BMW Concept i4, which looks pretty close to production ready.

BMW is set to reveal the BMW Concept i4 tomorrow at a “digital...

The BMW X5 M And X6 M Are Good But That's Not Really The Point

The BMW X5 M And X6 M Are Good But That's Not Really The Point
Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place.

The new BMW X5 M and X6 M drive like cars half their weight and also have every interior feature imaginable if you want. And yet. You get a nagging feeling behind the wheel, which isn’t the car’s fault. No, the car is good. But the questions that linger are: Who is this car for, exactly? What is this car for? Why is car?

BMW Says It Will Cut Emissions In Europe By 20 Percent, Gives No Indication How

BMW Says It Will Cut Emissions In Europe By 20 Percent, Gives No Indication How

BMW was once known for its diminutive fuel-sipping neue-klasse cars in early 1970s America. In the fifty years since, the company’s offerings have grown in every dimension. With the big-power M division getting headlines, and sales success of ever-larger luxury SUVs, BMW’s corporate average fuel economy has seen better days. As it faces a challenge to meet strict 2021 European carbon...

There Is Now Scientific Proof That Jerks Prefer Fancy Cars

There Is Now Scientific Proof That Jerks Prefer Fancy Cars

I’m feeling pretty validated, today. The International Journal of Psychology has released the findings of a recent study that confirm jerks, or at least Finnish jerks, much prefer luxury cars—specifically BMW, Mercedes, and Audis or—to just about anything else. Hence why it feels like every BMW driver is driving egregiously above the speed limit.

The study was conducted by the University of...

BMW Might Do A Single Grille; Red Is Blue; Down Is Up

Some people are still laughing at the BMW X7’s super large pre-sneeze snout. I, for one, got over it when I saw the SUV in person. Then a few months ago,

pictures of hilariously tall kidney grilles (are they even kidneys anymore?) came out and we cried. Now, there’s this shit.

Justin over at @allcarnews just sent this over to me, and while we’ve already seen that picture of the grey car in...

Weekend Wallpaper Put these on your desktop to look cool and awesome.

I like BMWs a lot, but their recent styling hasn’t always done it for me. Too many planes going in directions that don’t make sense, too much detailing on the fascia. But sometimes a photo captures something you don’t see, and that’s what’s going on here in my view.

We’ve got two shots of an M4 and another of an M760iL. Cars...
