The BMW i8 and BMW i3 will be on show at the NYIAS.

The BMW i8 Concept Spyder will not be shown until the Beijing Autoshow at the the end of April.

That and the wheel design are the only things that need some attention. Then It'll be the number 1 dream car ...

Video shooting was done at the Port of Miami Bridge. Photo shooting (concrete columns) at the new parking garage at Lincoln Rd. and Alton in Miami Beach.

It was done around 3/4 weeks ago.

How is it that BMW is able to film something like this and nobody captures some cell-phone footage? No curious public bystanders around?

Actually someone almost did. They started to chase after the car with their iPhone stretched out in their arms , running after it... until completely oblivious they ran into a parked SUV.

The Police/Security then closed off the area.

The rumors were that BMW was having difficult longitudinal strength issues with spyder engineering. This goes back a ways and we haven't seen, heard or read much of any new developments more recently. My dealership sales mgr recently mentioned that the spyder concept work was rumored to have stopped, but he was just repeating other, internal rumors. He also said the rumors of a 2016 M or S i8 version were stronger and potentially more viable. Who knows. In any case, I remain on their M/S version wish list, just in case.

I would love a spyder version too, if it ever evolves.
