Default 2010 BMW Z4 to be unveiled next month, Z2 hybrid may be in the works

Quote:
Okay so word on the street is that the next-generation BMW Z4 will be making its official debut next month. The 2010 BMW Z4 is expected to be a hard-top convertible that will be faster, sharper and may even be smaller than the current model.


Rumor has it that BMW is also working on an even smaller roadster dubbed the Z2. It will be a compact soft-top roadster that will be based on BMWs 1-series platform. Insiders suggest that BMWs Project-i is working on a hybrid version of the Z2 and will use what it has learned with the new MINI E on the compact roadster.



Other sources suggest that BMW may even take its Project-i as far up to the Rolls-Royce brand. Well let you know more as things clear up.

wasn't the M version of this rumored to have the TT-6 from the 1/335? That could be a very sweet summer car.

Likely that there won't be an M version. These cars really don't sell that well as M's because for the same money a boxster S can be had which is a much better car. Besides, M is working on the X5 and X6 .

This has the potential to be either really good... or really bad.

A small roadster with BMW's twin turbo 6 in a lightweight body, and styling cues from the CS concept could be killer.

If they make it bigger, heavier and mimic the look of the 6-series, it could be awful.
