The 86, BRZ and recently discontinued FR-S are sporty cars for people who like to have fun when they drive.

Despite some recent news about BMW potentially killing both manuals and DCT gearboxes in their future M-models, the 2 Series is a small coupe that’s good enough to still be called the Ultimate Driving Machine.

Perhaps due to the waning coupe market and insane demand for SUVs, used 2s are dirt cheap.

You don’t need to drop $60,000 on a bonkers M2 to get the experience. For as little as $20,000 you can buy a very nice pre-owned 228i coupe: jalopnik.com
Transport for London is spending £18m on upgrading the capital’s power grids to charge the first generation of battery-powered black cabs.

From 1 January 2018, all new black cabs will have to be battery-powered electric models by law as part of TfL’s effort to reduce toxic pollution from diesel engines.

The cash will pay for network reinforcements to enable British Gas owner Centrica and other energy companies to install 300 rapid electric-car charging stations by 2020.

The charging point can top up a car’s battery within minutes, rather than the hours it takes for the city’s thousands of conventional electric vehicles.

An initial 75 fast chargers are due to be operational by the end of the year. While some of the sites will be exclusively for black cabs, the network will also be open to the increasing number of owners of Teslas, Nissan Leafs and electric BMWs in London. theguardian.com
