BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

1996 1 Series?

Im not sure if this is true, but I pulled this out of a may 1996 issue of car & driver. It seems to me to be a 1 series. Anyone have any explanation?

Yuck....I'm glad it didn't happen...Even if it was in the 1990's

That would be fun to look at an old issue of a car Mag to see what was considered "hot" then and the old spyshots of cars that we know so well now! Unfortunatly, I wasn't too familiar with the car scene in the 1990's...

The car on the picture looks rather like the early nineties BMW E1 electric(!) concept car:
http://www.automobilrevue.de/bmw_e1.htm (see pics on the right)

Apparently a E1/1 hybrid and a US version named E2 had been developed as well, but none of them got the approval for production. It probably was too early for the market back then.
At any rate the E1 does not have much in common with today's 1 series since they've designed it as an eco car.

Edit: As for car & driver revealing a concept e-car shown to the public at the IAA 1991 and 1993 as 'spy shot' in 1996...
