The brand-new, all-electric BMW i3 just got here, and it's already driving away with awards, winning two categories at the 2014 World Car of the Year Awards (World Green Car and World Car Design) and two categories in the first U.K. Car of the Year Awards (Car of the Year and Best Supermini). Light but powerful engine All the hoopla is because of the i3's revolutionary use of aluminum/carbon fiber construction to keep the weight down (2,900 pounds) and the range up: 80-100 miles on a single three-hour charge.

A new five-year deal between the port of Baltimore and high-end automaker BMW will keep bringing an estimated $2.5 billion worth of vehicles through what is already the top auto import operation in the nation. Officials announced the extended partnership - and a large new BMW processing center at one of the port's terminals - at a waterfront gathering Thursday, saying the new facility will bolster Baltimore's dominance in the market, create 200 jobs and set the course for growth.

At the very time indigenous U.S. auto-makers are transferring a rather alarming portion of their productive capacity to Mexico, the Germans are relocating a chunk of theirs to South Carolina.The Bavarian Motor Works AG looked and looked and finally found the attractions of the Palmetto State more enticing even than the hordes of cheap labor and environmental laxity to be found in the booming, teeming vastness of Mexico.BMW chairman Eberhard von Kuenheim, and for heaven's sake don't forget the "von," tactful aristocrat that he is, did not allude to the low-paid help yesterday but suggested that it was South Carolina's -- South Carolina's?

WASHINGTON -- A case that advocates of lawsuit reform are trumpeting as a clear-cut symbol of abuse -- a $2 million verdict for a doctor whose new BMW car had sustained $601 worth of damage -- turned out to be anything but simple before the Supreme Court yesterday.With Congress locked in an impasse over proposals to impose curbs on civil lawsuits and multimillion-dollar verdicts, the court held a hearing on an appeal by BMW of North America Inc.But at the end of questioning about the constitutional implications of an Alabama jury's award, the justices seemed no closer than they have been in the past six years to clearing up the law of "punitive damages"The BMW case is the fifth since 1989 to test the court's position on punitive damages -- the added financial damages that juries tack on to punish a wrongdoer and deter others, in amounts that often run hundreds of times higher than the out-of-pocket value of the damage done.

It may be time for the reigning champ of the small sports sedan category to step aside. BMW's stellar 3 series has owned the niche for pretty much forever, but a worthy competitor is growling in the wings and has the Bavarian giant squarely in its sights: Cadillac. You read that right. Cadillac's resurgence over the past decade has been nothing short of amazing. When the fearsome CTS-V set a record at Germany's fabled Nurburgring for the fastest production sedan in 2008, the antiquated Caddy catchphrase “Standard of the World” suddenly seemed a lot less hubristic.

Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was unharmed despite being the victim of an armed robbery and carjacking last Sunday in Philadelphia. “Bernard's fine,” his agent Martin Magid told The Baltimore Sun on Tuesday. “The police are investigating the incident. Any questions about it should be forwarded to the Philadelphia Police Department. It's not the best situation, but he's good.” Magid said that Pierce, an Ardmore native who played his college football at Temple, was visiting friends in a “nice area” early Sunday evening when the incident occurred.

One might assume that even the most discriminating big sedan buyer could find satisfaction from one of the nine versions of BMW's flagship 7-series. One would be incorrect. For that ultra-discerning person, there's the BMW Alpina B7: more power, more athletic handling, more exterior styling, more cabin cosseting and, with only 2,000 produced per year, more exclusivity.  Alpina, a limited vehicle production company in its own right, has been partnering with BMW for 40 years to make already exceptional vehicles even better.

Johannesburg, South Africa -- When Nomzamo Fihla decided she needed a new car that would be more reliable than her balky Volkswagen, she joined the huge wave of black South Africans pushing car sales - and especially sales of luxury models - to record heights. Fihla, an operations manager in her 20s at a government call center, eventually decided on a jet-black, $40,000 BMW. It is much like her boyfriend's. And much like the prized status symbol of thousands of other black South Africans.

The FedEx Cup chase isn't the only "tournament within a tournament" in play at this week's BMW Championship. It's also the last chance for players to lock up a Presidents Cup berth. The top 10 players in both the U.S. and international standings after this week book automatic passage to Australia for November's showdown at Royal Melbourne. Remember, too, that U.S. captain Fred Couples already has earmarked one of his wild-card picks for Tiger Woods . That leaves even less wiggle room for U.S. hopefuls.
