Tesla (TSLA) gets a worthy competitor next spring when the i8 goes on sale in the U.S. The most exotic BMW ever, the plug-in hybrid i8 grand tourer has a carbon-fiber body and two motors, one electric with a 22 mile maximum range, and the other a three-cylinder gasoline one with a restricted top speed of 155 mph. BMW calls it "innovation disguised as a sports car." The price of all this technology naturally does not come cheaply: $135,700.
