After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.

History The Type 996 introduced in 1999 represented two major changes for the venerable 911 lineage: a water-cooled flat-6 engine replaced the popular air-cooled engine used in the 911 for 34 years, and the body shell received its first major re-design. The 996 styling shared its front end with Porsches mid-engine Boxster. Pinky Lais work on the exterior won international design awards between 1997 and 2003. In 2000, Porsche launched the Turbocharged version of the Type 996 for MY 2001. Like the GT3, the new Turbo engine was derived from the engine used in the 911 GT1 and, like its predecessor, featured twin-turbos and now developed 420 PS (309 kW; 414 hp). Also, like its predecessor, the new Turbo was only available with all-wheel drive. The styling was more individual than the previous generations of the Turbo. Along with the traditional wider rear wing, the 996 Turbo had different front lights and bumpers when compared to the Carrera and Carrera 4. The rear bumper had air vents reminiscent of those on the Porsche 959 and there were large vents on the front bumper.
