The BMW blog reports the four-seat sports car is slated for production in 2013 with a hybrid version to follow.

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

It was the star of the Frankfurt international motor show IAA in 2009: a four-seater sports car with charismatic design, fascinating performance figures and unsurpassed efficiency, powered by BMW ActiveHybrid technology and presented under the title BMW Vision EfficientDynamics. With its wide range of completely or virtually production-ready components, this concept study met with an overwhelming response.

There was a widespread desire to put the car on the road, and the realization of this desire is moving considerably closer. At the Leipzig trade fair center BMW is presenting a fully road-ready technology showcase vehicle based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept study. This presentation will give media representatives their first ever opportunity to find out what it is like to drive the 2+2-seater car powered by an innovative hybrid system.
