Despite all the attention to new BMW EVs, the sports performance brand hasn't abandoned fans of its internal combustion engine (ICE)-powered vehicles. At the Tokyo Mobility Show later this month, BMW will introduce the 2024 X2, the second generation of the BMW crossover, which BMW classifies as a compact sports activity coupe (SAC).

With a swath of stylized body components, punchier performance, and enhanced safety features, BMW appeals to drivers' emotions and budgets. BMW says the 2024 X2 will be available in the U.S. in March 2024.
2024 BMW X2: What you need to know
Purists could object to calling the X2 a BMW SUV. You might also wonder whether BMW is describing a vehicle or a person in the X2 news release. Emphasizing the four-door performance coupe's physical appeal with its "elegant, wing-shaped inlays" and "eye-catching headlights," the release also calls out the X2's "eye-catching shoulders" and its "powerful rear end."

BMW i5 first drive: The BMW 5 series goes fully electric (and we go hands-on)
Familiar form factor and a new electric drivetrain
BMW i5 front view

As with many other manufacturers, BMW feels the future is electric and is in the process of electrifying its entire offering. Following on from the i3 and the i7, the latest Bimmer to get the EV treatment is the highly popular BMW 5 series. And everything has gone pretty much as you would expect.

The rear-wheel drive i5 is a quick and punchy vehicle. Unlike previous gas-powered 5 series models, the phenomenal amount of torque generated by the i5's electric motor keeps the sedan pinned to the road at almost any speed. If the standard vehicle and its sub-6 second 0-60 times aren't enough for you, you can even opt for an M-package right out of the gate, adding a second motor, boosting power, and bringing all-wheel drive ("xDrive" in BMW parlance) into the mix. The M version has been named the M60 xDrive, nodding toward its four-wheel capability, while the basic electric model is the eDrive40.

The 9 best sports cars under $100k you can get
Six figures may not get you as much as it used to, but you can get one of these sports cars with that budget

Blame inflation, supply chain issues, or global issues that won't go away, but cars are way, way, way more expensive than they used to be. Unfortunately, inflated auto prices are a new trend that doesn't seem like it will be slowing down anytime soon. Despite this, if you're lucky enough to have $100,000 to spend on a high-performance sports car, you have some great sports cars under $100k to explore.
Are sports cars affordable? Yea right? While one wouldn't normally consider $100,000 sports cars affordable, shoppers who have some money to blow can find homegrown American muscle cars like the Dodge Challenger or exotics like the Lotus Emira on this budget. So, if you're seeking a sports car in this price range, from mega-powered muscle cars to mid-engine sports cars, here are the nine best sports cars under $100k.

Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 - $88,750
Unbelievably, $100,000 isn't enough to get into a base Porsche 911 anymore, but Porsche's loss is your gain because you can get a 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 for that money. The GTS 4.0 has the same flat-six engine found in the track-ready GT4. In this sports car, the 4.0-liter six-cylinder makes 300 horsepower and revs all the way to 7,000 rpm. Additionally, the motor is an ode to natural aspiration with rapid response time and a pure sound. 
Like other Porsches, what makes the GTS 4.0 so special is the way it handles and feels like a complete package. Shifts are excellent, handling is sublime, and the car feels like it can take beating after beating without an issue. So, whether you spend time on the track or the road, the GTS 4.0 feels special in either environment.
