After a long (long, long) break we’re back with a special episode of the BimmerCast. Special because we have special guest Bryan Joslin firmly of Vortex Media and now Editor and Chief of the forthcoming magazine Gran Turismo. Being a longtime BMW fan Bryan joins us to talk BMWs and his history with a very special 318is. We also touch on the M6 Gran Coupe that we both drove recently at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin Texas.

Next up we touch on the launch of BMWi and the i3. It’s a huge launch and one that everyone in the auto industry is watching with great anticipation.

Finally we get to Bryan’s new project, Gran Turismo Magazine. It’s an enthusiast-based automotive magazine that brings fresh perspective on the world of European motoring. Cars and motorcycles. New and classic. All European, all in one place.

Frankly we’d love to see it in the marketplace and are supporting it ourselves. And we’d urge you to check out the Kickstarter campaign and considering doing the same.

Oh and one more topic. In talking about the ideas behind Gran Turismo we started to wonder what you could buy new today that really hit on the simple principles of a sporty car. Steering, braking and acceleration with connection and feel. Is there still a car for sale that feels analog in all those ways? We come up with some answers.
