G29 Z4 - have we been fooled?

http://www.evo.co.uk/bmw/z4/19491/new-2 ... -z4-teased

official teaser... is the new supra actually a z4 too? And a targa? Hmmmm. Could look like a smaller version of the new 8 series.
Why is it that people who can't take advice always insist on giving it?

I doubt it but I wouldnt mind.
Usually a car looks more normal than all the artyparty design sketches.

I know, and the spyshots look nothing like it. Could there be two cars? Coukd one be a z2?

seems odd that its so different to spyshots. I really want a coupe / targa rather than a cloth top.

20th August at Pebble beach , we find out apparently. Concept unveiled (just like e86 concept was done and made available to the press).

I remember reading the supra would be Coupe, but z4 soft top only. But as is said above nothing has been confirmed! Hopefully it's not a 4pot gunning for the alpine or 718

Imho this could be a M8 prototype.
I also think revealing the z4 at pebble beach wouldnt be a big deal.
Nobody really cares about the z4 or it would have sold better and bmw wouldnt have needed a partner like toyota to develop one.
An M8 studymodel will probably attract more crowd.

Agreed, more likely to be m8.

We have definitely been fooled because there is actually another website called the Z5 forum, and there will be no Z5. What kind of idiot could have made that mistake?
