  1. The BMW 2002

    By Jacqueline Jouret

    Introduced in 1968, the BMW 2002 is one of the best-loved automobiles of all time, but its origins have been shrouded in mystery and misinformation for the last 50 years. The BMW 2002: The real story behind the legend reveals the truth behind this seminal car’s creation. It dispels the myth that the car was built at importer Max Hoffman’s instigation, telling the real story of the designers, engineers, executives, and federal regulators who shaped the 2002 into the perfect mixture of performance

  2. Resurrecting Bertha

    By Rob Siegel

    To most people, cars are just appliances to be disposed of when they rust, become unreliable, or are outgrown. But to car people, it's different. Cars are like photographs that occupy physical space. They hold aromas that trigger memories, and remind us of who we once were. In addition, to some people, the relationship with the car itself is a real thing. Many enthusiasts pine for the cars of their youth, regret that they ever let them go, and yearn and search for them the way people do with old

  5. BMW Profiles The BMW 02 Series The Cult Car

    By BMW Mobile Tradition

    Certainly no one would yet venture to call the models of the BMW 02 series vintage cars.  It will not be disputed, however, that they have earned a distinction as "classics" in more recent automobile history. Even today, a BMW 1602, 2002 or 1502 can occasionally be spotted on the roads.  These cars, the newest at least twenty years old, are sometimes still driven by their original owners, but the majority are carefully maintained by ardent fans of this unique series.  Its models have gained cult

  6. BMW Classic Coupes, 1965 - 1989

    By James Taylor

    A definitive guide to BMW's high-performance classic coupes, tracking their rising success from 1965 to 1989. After the doldrums of the post-war years, BMW had felt the need for a flagship grand touring coupe. The 507 of the late 1950s and the 3200 CS that replaced it in the early 1960s may not have made much money for the company, but they were a reminder of its aspirations. Then in 1964, a striking new coupe emerged from the building blocks of the latest saloon car range. The 2000 and 2000 CS,

  9. BMW 2002 Ultimate Portfolio 1968-1976

    By R.M. Clarke

    The 2002 began as the brainchild of Max Hoffmann, BMW's US importer, who wanted a car to follow up the 1600-2. Hoffman suggested using the 2-liter engine from its larger saloons, which would give excellent performance even in emissions-controlled form. The BMW engineers did as Hoffmann suggested and the result took the motoring world by storm on its announcement in 1968. So popular did the 2002 become that it went on to sell more than 300,000 examples over the seven years of its production. The
