2025 BMW 8 Series Changes

The new generation 2025 BMW 8 Series will still be built in CLAR. It is the basis for every aspect of everything, from the Z4 up to the 8 Series and even big SUVs such as the X7. The decision to make use of the same platform isn’t an unsurprising one and, given the direction car companies are heading, so does the selection of engine. According to BMWBlog according to BMWBlog, the forthcoming BMW 8 Series will be completely electric. Specifics about the powertrain are not yet available, but it is thought that at least one variant will be similar in performance to the BMW i4 M50.

That’s two electric motors with one motor for each axle, with a total output of 544 hp (405 Kilowatts) and 586 pounds (795 Nm). This will allow for the 0-60 speed (97 kilometers/h) 3.9 seconds and is 0.2 seconds less than the compact i4 M50. There will be stronger versions of the upcoming 8 Series, including a genuine M version.

Based on a story by German automotive journalist Georg Kacher, BMW will reduce its lineup. Particularly there will be a merger of the 4 Series and 8 Series will join together into a single lineup, which will result in a brand new BMW 6 Series. Its predecessor, the “6er” dates back to 1976, and the cult E24 model is now a cherished classic that you can buy for very little money. With the way that the previous generation, F06/F12/F13 of the 6 Series was retired in favor of the new 2025 BMW 8 Series, the next 6 Series will be the final chapter from”the “8er” as we know it. Although the Coupe as well as the Cabriolet models of the present 2025 BMW 8 Series are already being removed from the North American market, the Gran Coupe will stick around. It will however not be a stand-alone model, but rather a part of the upcoming 7 Series lineup. In the case of the new EV models that will replace the 8 Series, they are likely to be based on BMW’s Neue Klasse EV platform.

Models

Of the three major German automotive manufacturers BMW claims to be providing the most athletic models. Although Mercedes and Audi are both sporting the same race experience, there’s one top-performing BMW model that has all the ingredients needed but was unable to achieve the mark that was needed. It was the BMW E26 M1 was built in limited quantities, with support from Lamborghini. It participated in a one-make race with modified versions that were a part of this M1 race.

In 2008 the M1 was given a modern-day homage to the BMW M1 Homage. The design was retro-futuristic and included elements from both the original M1 as well as the E25 Turbo, which like the 2008 M1 Homage was a concept vehicle. We know that at a minimum BMW has been looking for a suitable successor to the mid-engine of the 1970s sports car, since 2013. The 2013 Vision EfficientDynamics concept laid the foundation for the way for the hybrid BMW i8. The latter model was canceled by 2020. BMW announced the Vision M Next concept for the year 2019. Vision M’s Next concept, could be an alternative to the i8.

It was, as always, a PHEV. However, it was one 2.0-liter turbo-four instead of i8’s 1.5-liter turbo-three. Power was considerably higher, with 600 horsepower (441 Kilowatts). It is believed that this Vision M could sprint to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) within 2.8 seconds, and then reach an average speed of 181 mph (300 kilometers per hour). If it were a production variant that is similar to this Vision M with similar characteristics would have placed it against the models from the Audi R8 and Mercedes AMG GT and Mercedes AMG GT, both of which are in their final production year.

2025 BMW 8 Series Rumors

Both models are being discontinued and both models are being retired, there is an indefinite power shortage in the German high-performance segment. There is a delay in the Audi R8 successor is being delayed, while 2024’s Mercedes AMG SL is a more lavish version of the discontinued AMG GT. The only competition for the segment might come from the soon-to-be hybridized Porsche 911 Turbo S, which, as we all know is a market segment that is its own. If the talks about BMW’s model merger are anything to look at, the brand’s range will get diluted and a mid-engine successor to the M1’s original M1 could be the most effective alternative to that…if BMW decides to make the car.
