    Here is a nice idea for the next Super Car ! If it looks anything like this I will be dreaming of it. Congrats to BMW I think this one will be a smash hit :)

    Well, the price is also a smash hit. (If it is the one I'm thinking of).

    I did not see a price so I was afraid to ask. LOL But I am sure it will not be much more than a TM Supercar. Fingers crossed ..... even though I am quite sure BOTH are completely out of my budget.

    Does anyone think that the next-gen roadster/Tesla supercar will have doors similar to the Model X? I've read somewhere that Elon wants it to be a 911 competitor but with useable rear seats, so having doors like the Model X or even the BMW i8 could actually make sense. What do you guys think?

    One of the big benefits from a scissor, gullwing, or falcon door is it makes it easy to get in and out of the car in tight spaces, the BMW i8 doesn't appear to help with that... This is a good concept to get passengers into a 4 passenger sports car..
