Will we see a Mini Z?

^The target.

Just as there are two X cars, the X3 and the X5, BMW thinks there is sufficient demand for a Z2-level roadster. A corollary rumor is that a Z6 roadster is also in the works; it would be a rival to Mercedes-Benz SL.

BMW isn't giving much information away, but officials do say it would take at least four years to engineer and develop a new roadster. That would hint at a possible 2010 launch for the Z2, one year after BMW plans to introduce a successor to today's Z4.

^The bullet.

Read "Whispers: BMW Ponders Miata-Fighting Z2 Roadster" @ Edmunds

When I read the title of this thread I thought:

Kappa sized Nissan 240Z.

Nissan needs to make an old school, retro, "Scion like" lineup

of RWD cars for cheap $$$ and call them Datsuns. Start with

a super-minimalist 510 hardtop, 4dr sedan & a 240Z stlye

little drifting special.

BMW would be smarter to make a Z6, I think. Aren't sales of the Z4 going to tank if there's something less expensive sitting right next to it? And I don't think a Z6 would suffer from Z4 taking its sales because it'd be significantly bigger and more expensive.

Enough with the alphabet soup... it's getting pathetic.

Lincoln is emulating it so you KNOW it's bad.

I'd even prefer the name C!marron to more Alphabet soup.
