Ring Taxi fans rejoice, because rumors of its death
may have been exaggerated. Sort of. It appears that OK-Speed-Marketing, BMW
and other parties involved have different takes on the matter.
Bimmer enthusiast forum M3Post.com states that BMW is merely switching from the M5
to the new M3
. BMW will continue to supply driving talent from its Driving Experience program as well. Over on Bridge-to-Gantry, however, it's being reported that OK-Speed-Marketing is moving away from BMWs altogether. It will continue to operate the official Ring Taxi service with a Porsche 911 997 Clubsport and Mini John Cooper Works in its Ring Taxi stable. Either way, it sounds like you'll still be able to pay someone to haul you around the Nordschleife at giggle-inducing velocities, and that's good news no matter how you slice it. Thanks for the tip, Felix!
*UPDATE: Nürburgring-heroine Sabine Schmitz
is still suiting up to rocket passengers 'round the 'Ring. It won't be from the cozy-confines of a BMW but rather a Porsche 997 GT3 RS. The cost to get your Teutonic-terror ride on? $730.
