Well, David Obendorfer, who has worked for the Officina Italiana Design of Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta for 12 years.

In his spare time, he also likes to revive the cars of yesteryear by imagining what their modern counterparts would look like. His latest project creates a bridge through time by reviving a concept from 1972, adapted for 2020.

The spirit of the first electric BMW, the 1602 Elektro-Antrieb, is alive and well in David's 02 Reminiscence concept. He imagines another Series 2 coupe, with an interesting shape.

Our other news on BMW:

Unlike the vast majority of renderings we share here on Motor1.com, which only show the exterior, David spent a little more time designing a complete interior for his zero-emission Munichoise. Echoing the clean lines of the exterior, the interior is very simple, with a number of controls reduced to the absolute minimum.

A hypothetical Elektro-Antrieb 1602 for the 21st century would certainly have more punch than its ancestor. The original concept, presented at the 1972 Munich Olympics, had a single 43-horsepower electric motor placed toward the rear wheels. The 12.6 kWh Varta battery meant that the car had enough juice to travel 30 kilometers.

That said, BMW is no stranger to these retro concepts, having launched the superb 3.0 CSL Hommage five years ago. There are also several other concepts: 328 Hommage, 2002 Hommage and M1 Hommage were also modern versions of classic cars.
