1-Series w/ 3-cylinder engine?

Just saw this from 4wheelsnews site. I think its suspect, but wondered if any other source is reporting this? Maybe its from their April fools edition?


"Scheduled for 2012, the upcoming Bmw 1-Series will follow the same recipe shown by the current version! In a recent interview, Mr. Klaus Draeger Bmws head of development, said that the future version of the compact car will carry a three-cylinder engine.

Now dont imagine this will be a slow vehicle because the manufacturer is considering a supercharged version of this powerplant which will deliver more power but also a smaller fuel consumption. The big surprise is that the new 1-Series will also be offered in 100% electric version! Now lets wait and see how this vehicle will look. As soon as we will find out something we will let you know!"

Socialism isn't funny...

This is the crap you get when the government constantly attacks businesses.
