BMW on the prowl for a engine joint venture partner

BMW reportedly is looking for a buddy to build engines together with, yet again. Working together spreads out the development costs and and speeds up the development time with twice as many minds on the job according to BMW Chief Executive Norbert Reithofer.

BMW already works with Peugeot/Citroen to share the motors for the Mini and could look to expanding the usage of those motors to other BMW cars. 

Daimler might even hop on-board with group effort as it has small cars such as the A-class and B-class that could make use of a small motor. In addition, Daimler could even work with a Japanese manufacturer for four-cylinder motors.
