German made, impressively sophisticated, curiously underrated, and a slammin' pre-owned buy. It was already a buyer's market for these, and I suspect even better opportunities will emerge shortly. I might even buy one down the road.
This car deserves its special place in history as one of the early "green" cars that appealed to traditional driving enthusiasts. Like the original Tesla Model S, the i8 was a good-faith effort to show that alternative propulsion (I offer no opinion on its "sustainability") could be engaging, exciting, and desirable. It should be remembered well.
