    BMW "Z9" coming 2008. probably.

    according to auto-motor-und-sport.de BMW is currently working on a successor to the Z8: a mid-engined roadster, coming in 2008 and priced below EUR 120,000 (erm, i wonder if M6's price will be reduced then ).

    engine will be an enhanced version of the M5's V10 (around 550 HP then) and/or a V8 from the upcoming M3 with around 400 HP.

    sure it is. it's just a rumour and car is expected for 2008. no one said it's the real car.

    Looks like a Lambo

    It appears the basis for that photoshop was a CGT.

    Reminds me of a VW prototype called the W12 or something...
    Anyone remember?

    Re: BMW "Z9" coming 2008. probably.

    Sorry, wasnt the VW W12 prototype...it was the Audi Le Mans Quattro I had in mind..

    Why do they bother? The Z8 was hardly a commercial success, and didn't even do much for BMW'S image, because it was not really noticed much by the "general public".
    When I saw it, it just made me think of a higher quality retro remake of a sixties Corvette. That's soomething you might expect from a good tuner, but not from BMW.

    Re: BMW "Z9" coming 2008. probably.

    I hope they make a sporty coupe version too

    Hmmmm. They could call it a Z9 Stingray!

    (Read my post above for enlightenment).

    Re: BMW "Z9" coming 2008. probably.

    I hope BMW outsources the styling of the Z9.

    The Audi coupe as above looks like a road going vacumn cleaner.

    My opinion. Especially the rear!

    Not bad...

    Re: BMW "Z9" coming 2008. probably.

    i personally think the car looks ugly (z9). If this is what they are planning to make out of the z9 i think its better for them to stick with the z8! Its a classic for sure
