BMW's i sub-brand will be keeping their sporty and eco lines of cars separate according to a report published by Car Advice. “No M engineers worked on the hybrid supercar project.”

This bit of news means that there will be no i8 M (or…Mi8) at any time for the moment.

 BMW Group head of technology communications Cypselus von Frakenberg commented on the matter. He said “I don’t think that it would make sense to mix these two sub-brands in one car. We have the Ms, we have the is, and we have the BMW, the core brand”.
