New Z car in 2016

Post by dw1985 » Thu 19 Sep, 2013 08:17

New BMW Z2 due in 2016... The BMW Z2 will be similar in size to the Z3 and will get petrol or diesel power
looks nice... but the lines down the side remind me of the fiat coupe?

what are your thoughts?

front wheel drive, 3 cylinder diesels, and i'm not sure about the styling, i agree about the lines down the sides.

doesn't tempt me.

I'm glad it is a new series, not replacing the z4.

Not keen on the looks. If I changed I would prefer a Boxster :lol:

Looks like a z4 hybrid / parts / cost saving / idea....something like they did with the z3 and e30 / e36 parts on the mechanicals...this Z2 is bound to get tagged as a "baby Z4"...which will upset a few Z4 drivers, especially if someone asks if their Z4 is also front wheel drive.... :roflmao:

There have been lots of 'imagined mock-ups' of the mooted Z2 over recent years, and generally they looked a whole lot better than this latest effort.
I WAS gonna start saving up, but.... :?

The car doesn't exist yet, so nor does the section for it either. And I wouldn't demean the new car by creating a section just for the photoshopped mock-ups that various magazines have done - some of them were truly hideous. :evil:

I like it.. Looks smart I think, also having a diesel option is a good idea.. If its based on the mini then it will be a great drive too
