BMW Building a Case for the Z4 M
"There are days when it hurts not to have one, but there was no compelling business case at the time when the decision was taken," Albert Biermann, head of product development told Inside Line. "We are trying to make a case but there are so many factors to consider."
The decision could be made harder by the market overlap with the rumored M2, based on the new 2-Series. This is rumored to be a light sportscar in both coupe and convertible configuration, and it will make use of lightweight materials in excess. If this turns out to be faster and sweeter round a corner than the Z4 M, it will make it redundant.
Editor’s note: They can make M SUVs, but M two-seater sportscars are this hard to bring to production?
