Exclamation Officially green-lighted: BMW Z2 Roadster and Coupe coming in 2012

It’s official that BMW “officially” gave the green light to the new BMW Z2 Roadster which will launch in the second half of 2012. Along with the Roadster version that we have been hearing about for a while now, a Coupe model will be available as well.


BMW Z2 is based on next generation 1 Series platform and it is build under the Project i umbrella and the BMW EfficientDynamics program.

The Z2 will be a rear drive vehicle, still with a front-engine approach offered with different options:

* all-electric engine
* Hybrid with range extender petrol engine
* 1.6 l 4-cylinder petrol direct injection engine developing 204 horsepower

The BMW Z2 concept will be unveiled at Frankfurt Auto Show along with another exciting concept which will talk about in our next article.

Not a repost. This is news as of March 25th.

Sounds interesting. A smaller model is a necessity in the lineup now that the Z4 has grown in size.

Nice. Im guessing the 1.6L is the Turbo 1.6L from the Mini Cooper JCW.

Hopefully this car is sold in the United States. BMW is usually afraid of selling anything with 4cyl here. Even though if this car weighs in under 2800lbs the 1.6L engine will make it plenty quick.

It will come to the states, it is needed in the current market, due to the z4 out~classing this lower price segment!
