I wonder how similar to this the production car will be:

Hopefully this thing doesn't weigh a lot, it'd be awesome to see a low weight, high hp coupe

The problem is it will cost a lot and people will expect it to have luxurious amenities. I see the 8 series compared to the 7 series as the 6 series was to the 5 series. It could have a hybrid turbo 4 cylinder in it and people would buy them all if it has the 8'er badge on it. Maybe that is the real issue here.

That front end will definitely be different, can't imagine those grills hanging out there like that.

After the i8, I'm not even sure anymore.

True, but even the i8 has an area that is bumper vs the grilles being the first thing to contact anything even when parallel parking. Looks like a love tap would equal a new front end.
