Very interesting article here at Car and Driver.
Quote:
Before Kay Segler leaves BMWís M GmbH performance division to once again head the Mini brand, he has opened the vault to show a number of rarely or never seen concept cars and proposals from the divisionís rich 25-year history. We were able to take a close look at the vehicles and quiz engineers and executives about the thinking behind these cars and why they didnít make production. (The current-gen M3 pickup that debuted last week, is sure to join this collection one day, too.)

Nice cars, but I don't get it. What is the purpose of this post?

Sorry to be obtuse, but what's the big deal? A BMW is a BMW. They're all special.

(I can't believe I wrote this dumb post.)

She's pretty dang cute. But, I have three nieces. I guess this is one of those times when "cutest" is in the eye of the relative.

I thought "The current-gen M3 pickup that debuted last week" was an April Fool's Joke!
