U.S. BMW dealerships have begun reaching out to their i8 customers with an update on their orders. According to the bulletin, there is a shortage of the Carum Spice Grey Full Leather due to an overwhelming amount of orders of the Pure Impulse World package. BMW says that 90% of the production was secured as Pure Impulse World to meet the expected demand of this unique package.

The leather supplier has indicated that they cannot meet the initial worldwide demand and BMW has been forced to reduce projections of anticipated supply.

In order to secure the August and September i8 units, BMW USA needs to remove the Pure Impulse World from 163 vehicles. These orders will be updated to Tera World Exclusive Dalbergia Brown Leather.

    Interesting…
    Meanwhile in “Auto Motor Und Sport”, BMW seems to confirm an i9 for 2016

      I honestly don’t think so. There is no room so far above the i8

        The i9 will celebrate the 100th year of BMW. It will be based on the i8 but will get more powerful engines, petrol and electric. Might be a limited production though.

          I know there will be a special car that year but my bet is still on a conventional supercar.
