Everyone stops me on the road and asks me if my coupe is a hardtop. I think alot of people would opt for that. Personally, i think 99% of the time, the cars only look good with the top down.

This was one of the questions they asked us. For the prototype it's one where everyone in my group stated that it looked good with the top up or down.

We should wait and see what the trunk space is like, especially you M Roadster owners. You've only got 7.1 cubic feet now, you can hardly claim it was a top priority when you were shopping.

zoomzoomers, thank for sharing this with the forum...
that blue sketch that was posted appears to be a tracing of the concept I posted over on this thread last month, along with the mule images which have been at Edmunds for a while;
http://www.zpost.com/forums/showthre...=1#post1216971

It's pretty cool to get a chance to see that concept (and get paid for it),
I can guarantee you if this concept stays in circulation somebody somewhere will get a photo of it... everyone keep searching on Google in the coming weeks, maybe we'll find it!

I predicted last year the next Z4 would have a folding hard top, this might help a lot with the rattles and shakes, rag tops are becoming passé now, even cheapo Pontiac has gone to folding hard tops at much lower price points... not too long ago they were only found on just a few higher end cars like Lexus SC430 and the Mercedes. I welcome the folding hard top, but in the mean time:



Well, not "worthless," but you know what I mean.

I really like that pic... almost lambo-like. I think this pic is the closest to the OP's description (shorter hood, more balanced seating position, some 6-series touches, etc.), and it looks like >$100K. I love my Emma, but I'd dump her for this model.

BTW, I was Googling around and found the pic. I don't remember what words I put in, though. Sorry

I would agree....
It looks to be flirting with supercar territory, rather than a Z4 replacement.

I have to admit that absolutely none of these impress me.
I prefer the Z4 in that it's unique...it doesn't look like anything else.
These rederings look like the bastard child of a Ferrari and a Merc.

Just my 2 cents
