i8 wasn't supposed to be cheap. Considering the development costs and the result, an estimated $160K is not bad (but, yah, I can't afford it). I don't think they designed it in the vein of the 1M (hot item on a papuper's development budget).
The i3 appeals to me. My commuter/beater is a Suzuki SX4. It has AWD and gets 30 mpg, manual etc. I think the i3 would be a great commuter vehicle, though the range is not all that impressive.
You will have goosepimples.
