So now there are two BMW i8s? Yup, the Roadster is an addition to the Coupe. Sports-car buyers like to have a choice, and BMW reckons the open i8 will roughly double the i8 business by selling as many as the Coupe does. Or as few… You could say. In the four years since the i8 launched, BMW has shifted about 14,000. Porsche sells about 30,000 911s every year, but then the 911 range is vastly wider. Good reason, then, for BMW to increase the number of i8 choices by 100 per cent. What about the performance?
