The BMW i8 Spyder is coming. BMW has been toying with the idea of a production i8 Spyder, the final approval has been delayed several times. But according to German newspaper Handelsblatt, BMW CEO Harald Krüger has reportedly confirmed the i8 Spyder. The open-top i8 will be built under the codename I15 and it’s rumored to embody the future of cutting-edge and emotionally appealing mobility concepts. Just like the “regular” i8, the two-seater roadster blends lightness, dynamic capability and efficiency with a very special aesthetic allure.

BMW first teased a convertible version of the i8 four years ago and delivered another one, the BMW i Vision Future Interaction, last month at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The i8’s plug-in hybrid powertrain will likely carryover, while getting an updated battery pack and a potential increase in power. The current i8 makes 360 horsepower and hits 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of  250 km/h (155 mph).

Despite previous rumors, the i8 Spyder will not debut this year, but the expectations are that the launch date will be in 2017.

      I don’t think there will be a supercar… It would make more sense if they’d make an i8 with more power and everything more sporty. An i8s of some sort :)
