Back in 1976, an Oregon man was apparently trying to retrofit new F-150s with diesel engines, and he created a single proof-of-concept prototype before passing away in 1978.

“We don’t have a final model ready, but you can give us your money.” - BMW, probably.

It looks like BMW might have skipped a step in its creative process. A few months ago, the Bavarian house showed the latest addition to its menu of concepts: a delightfully retro-looking bobber armed with the company Big Boxer engine yet. A final production version has yet to show up, but BMW is ready to take your money!

Prototype Toyota 2000GT Headlines Classic Car Auction In Tokyo

Prototype Toyota 2000GT Headlines Classic Car Auction In Tokyo If you've ever wanted to see what the classic car scene looks like in Japan, check out this weekend's BH Auction in Tokyo. As cool as it is to daydream about buying rare cars at domestic auctions, sometimes it's more exciting to see what types of automotive forbidden fruit are being auctioned off in other countries. Take this weekend's BH Auction in Tokyo, example. While this is a small auction – just 22 lots – what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with some ultra-rare vehicles. Each vehicle holds its own significance, but the 1969 Toyota 2000GT "MF12L" is probably the most exciting car at the auction.

From Prototype To Pre - Bookings , BMW Jumps Ahead With The R 18 . This doesn’t come as a big surprise since a few weeks ago, BMW France opened up pre - bookings on the R 18 . I mean, if BMW is ready to collect people’s money for a bike, chances are a production version is coming.

From Prototype To Pre - Bookings , BMW Jumps Ahead With The R 18 . In May, BMW unveiled its latest concept, the elegant R 18 bobber with its massive 1800cc boxer engine. Pre - bookings are now open in Europe.

Since it showed its concept off back in May, BMW has been tight-lipped about the future of its striking, vintage-inspired bobber. The concept introduced a number of really interesting features, including the 60s Motorrad-inspired look and the massive 1800cc boxer engine at its core. While the bike cuts a striking figure, there is little to no information about it such as engine specs and settings.

Apparently, BMW doesn’t need a fancy unveiling to confirm that the new model will indeed be added to its lineup. All it needs to do is offer people to pre-book it. The company says the deposit will be refundable provided the production version of the model doesn’t meet the expectations or the listed price ends up being too high—another unknown variable in this equation.

  5 Things You Need to Know About the New Subaru Levorg Don't hold your breath for this performance GT wagonThat's nothing new for a niche car from a Japanese automaker. Since the Subaru Levorg, described as a "prototype," was unveiled at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, we've come to have a better understanding of it.

This process seems a bit unusual—at this point, you’d think we would at least see a production model to give potential customers a taste of what they’re getting, right? Apparently, BMW doesn’t need to do that and is hoping to get people excited with a pretty concept and a handful of promises. Do... Do you need pocket money, BMW?

On the bright side, it means we should see the R 18 roll out of production next year!

Subaru Levorg Prototype Arrives In Tokyo With New 1.8L Turbo Boxer .
Could the wagon's engine power the next WRX?Subaru has been selling the Levorg in Japan for nearly six years, so it doesn’t come as a surprise the wagon is about to enter the second generation.
