You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?! Can't wait!!




Seriously though, the roadster should be the purest car in a manufacturers lineup, a tribute to the past, a car that romanticizes the driving experience, it should be something that makes your arm hair raise. The last car that BMW produced that really did it for me was the Z4M. It was the perfect example of what a modern roadster should be like. While I have no doubt that the Z2 will be a bite the back of your hand beautiful car just like the Z4, it will be a disappointment because it will be a boulevard cruiser just like the Z4.

Now Scott you say that a small RWD roadster is coming, but until I see a prototype I have to assume that what you are saying is false. I hope you understand that it is not personal.
