What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW i8 coupe?

If you want a sports car that’ll be thrilling to drive, it’s hard not to conclude that either an Audi R8 or a Porsche 911 would be a more satisfying purchase than the i8. However, it is equally true that with its plug-in hybrid system and futuristic styling, the i8 offers something that neither the R8 nor 911 can compete with.

In the sense of it being an expensive car with an element of electric propulsion, the i8 might also be considered as a rival to the Tesla Model S, even though the latter is a fully electric five-seat hatchback.

Overview

The BMW i8 is a plug-in hybrid sports car that does things completely differently, and it's a great used buy.

  • Unique driving experience
  • Low running costs
  • Amazing styling
  • Steering could be better
  • Cramped rear seats
  • Tiny boot
