Vision Next 100
Last week, BMW celebrated its 100th birthday! We were treated to a release of a new concept car, the Vision Next 100, with a combo of autonomous and manual driving features. As with most concept cars, the idea seems too crazy to be believed! The body is shape-shifting carbon fiber, and the steering wheel folds up when it is in autonomous driving mode. Next, I fully expect the flying cars we were promised in Back to the Future II and The Jetsons! Are you listening, designers?
I also stumbled across this fun article on thrillist.com, which has a list of fun BMW facts to read through. Personally, numbers 8, 13, and 18 are my favorite tidbits!
Thank you for 100 great years, BMW! I know everyone is looking forward to seeing what you can think of next!
Only one request for the next generation, from this humble blogger and shop manager, please please please bring back the dipstick? People love them. They are comforting. It is a $3.00 piece of important diagnostic equipment. Pretty please? Thank you! How can you say no to this face?
