If you are any other carmaker, this is really not what you want to hear on a Friday morning: The industry's 800-pound gorilla and one of its most profitable brands are joining forces. If you are an enthusiast (or environmentalist), however, the would-be products of this collaboration may have you cheering like a Miami Heat fan.
While details are admittedly scarce, the notion of BMW
throwing in on a sports car has us tickled, especially considering how well the Japanese giant's liaison with Subaru
to produce the BRZ
and Scion FR-S
has turned out. The other aspects of this just-announced BMW-Toyota agreement - a fuel cell system, powertrain electrification and lightweighting technology - make the project sound even more like the stuff of dreams. The expansive partnership builds on a deal between the two automakers brokered in March
to collaborate on next-generation lithium-ion batteries.
Count us among those waiting with bated breath to see whether they come true.
