BMW Z2 to be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show?

A new rumor suggests the BMW Z2 is ‘game on’ for Frankfurt. Was BMW just trying to throw all of us off the scent by denying the Z2’s existence? Or are rumors getting jumbled that overlap with the Z10 ED? We don’t have all the answers yet, so we’ll just keep scratching out heads until September.

Maybe this and the mini speedster will be based of the same car

Will BM be ready to embark a into a new market segment? If that is the idea then for sure they must be ready to make it all out for a competition

Rumor says that the production of Z2 will not push through. So how’s that for BMW? They might thinking that they will not make it for two reason they will not survive the market segment or that they are not ready to sell their cars below 30K. What do you think?

I think that’s the real score here...producing a cheaper car with that will comply with the international emission standards. That’s what every car manufacturer are targeting before those V6 engines got kicked out for it bad fuel efficiency.

For sure Z2 will come out compliant with the US emission standards.

News says to keep costs down, a nearly identical chassis to today’s Z4 will underpin the Z2 — struts up front with a multilink setup in back — but there will be the option of adjustable shocks. The electric power-steering rack from the Z4 will also live on in the Z2, with optional variable-ratio active steering. This marketsegment is dominated by Japanese and American cars will Bimmer be ready for this?

Since we have been talking about this Z2 already, it says that unlike today’s Z4, which is powered exclusively by six-cylinder engines, the Z2 will only get four-cylinder power with strength from 150 horsepower in base versions to a turbocharged 300-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the M-tuned version. An expected curb weight of 2800 pounds should allow the Z2 to make the most of that power. Transmission choices will include a traditional manual and a double-clutch gearbox similar to Volkswagen/Audi’s DSG. BMW plans to replace its rough-shifting sequential manual gearboxes with smoother DSG-like transmissions before the end of the decade. Now if these are for sure. BM is certainly making sense with its pricing.

Certainly. For now we cannot competely give full details about this jumbled information about the Z2 or must be the Z10 ED until September comes. Rumors says that the new two-seat droptopis expected to occupy the sub-$30,000 roadster segment that is currently dominated by the Pontiac Solstice and Mazda MX-5.
