The BMW i3 Looks A Lot Like This Crazy Forgotten ’90s Concept Car

When I saw the production photos of the new BMW i3 electric city car, I couldn’t shake the feeling that I had seen it somewhere else before. Then one day, in a flash of brilliance, it occurred to me that this isn’t the first time BMW has tried a lightweight, rear-engine, super-efficient city car hatchback. I’m talking about the BMW Z13 concept, which debuted way back in 1993. It has a surprising number of similarities to the i3, and unlike most outrageous concept cars, it actually came pretty close to production.
