Rendering artist Theophilus Chin gives us a futuristic view a BMW i8 with four-doors. The rendered i8 is based off the production model and comes with rear suicide doors as seen on the BMW i3 Megacity.
The Photoshopped i8 is clearly just an imaginary car as BMW has no intention to unveil a four-door model in the future. A potential i9 car may appear in the future, but details are scarce at this point in time.

BMW went on sale this summer and uses a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a turbocharged three-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine and BMW eDrive technology in the form of an electric drive system. The 1.5-liter combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8, while the 96 kW/131 hp electric drive sends its power to the front wheels and allows an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).
The 2014 BMW i8 has a base price of $135,700 but some dealers are asking as much as $100,000 over the MSRP. A recent one-off BMW i8 sold for $825,000 in Pebble Beach.
