BMW is working to electrify the 5 Series car

BMW is working on expanding its electrified fleet of vehicles, and one of the newest additions will be an all-electric 5 Series. The German car company plans to lower its overall emissions footprint, according to Reuters. This includes emissions from both its cars and factories.

A fun game to play with your gearhead buddies is spitballing what might be the Next Big Thing in collector car circles. Fox-body Mustangs and the Integra Type R have recently become popular fodder for such conversations. Now, thanks to a sky-high auction price, we can go ahead and add the vaunted BMW M3 to that list.Specifically, the E30-gen M3, an example of which just hammered away for a quarter-million bucks.
