Default Next Generation BMW Z4 Spy Shots.

I came across the snaps of next generation Z4:

Here is the link:
Spy Shots: Next gen BMW Z4 snapped again on SoCal freeway - Autoblog

The complete article is:
Quote:
Our ever-vigilant readers have struck, proving yet again that in the age of the camera phone, almost anyone with a mobile device can emulate Jim Dunne, Brenda Priddy or Hans Lehmann. The latest capture we've received comes from reader Charlie Hung, who recently spotted this black roadster on a Southern California freeway. A quick inspection of the images reveals it to be the next-generation BMW Z4 that's been spotted periodically for some time now. The bodywork on BMW's latest offerings would suggest that the current Z4's flame surfacing will probably be radically toned down. Much of the contouring we see on this prototype is likely just camouflage. Underhood, we'll probably get the same powertrain lineup as the 3 Series, with the next M Roadster getting the M3's V8. Judging from the size of the rear window, the Z4 will probably pick up a retractable hard top as well. When the new Z4 debuts, BMW will move production from its current home Spartanburg, SC to Germany. Spartanburg will take over production of the X3 crossover.
I am also attaching images from the above link:

@mods:
I tried searching, but was not able to find a thread. I could not search for " Z4". If found any other similar thread, take the necessary action.

Default Rendering

Here are a few renderings of what the 2010 Z4 will look like by production. In my opinion it looks great, that is if this is what it will look like.

The computer generated impression looks better/less confusing than the current Z4. Still carries the Bangle-era flame surfacing, albeit a little less.

I think we can handover one to DC who can possibly do a better job than the disciples of CB.

Looks beautiful. Was always a fan of the Z4. Definitely a step forward, whether hated or loved. (Except the new A4.....) Audi is still where it was, only because the A6 and A8 can't be differentiated by the layman, while BMW and Mercedes evolved, and prospered. First Bangle and now van Hooydonk are taking the game to the next level.
