and that BMW might try to squeeze the 4.0-liter V8 found in the M3 into the Z4's lengthy hood.
That would be sick.

It will be nice to see the TT inline 6 in it. The V8 imo is over kill

^^^ no such thing, IMO.

I think maybe the v8 rumor has been dispelled around here lately - but personally I don't see BMW going from 330hp in the old M to 300 in the new one, even if it is faster. I also don't see BMW putting a non-M edition engine into an M car. Further, all of the M models now have N/A, high revving motors.
Unless they have a V6 in the works, I don't see the TT making it into the Z4M - the regular Z4 I could see all day.
One thing is for sure - if BMW wanted to steal a boatload of Cayman/Boxster owners, putting a 400+ hp V8 in the car would be a great way to do it.

Do what you want with the engine, but please BMW, make the Z4 as pretty as that render. I'm so tired of BMW cars I want to love being ruined by awkward overwrought design.

I doubt it. It will make the Z8's resale value plummet.

TT I6 on the other hand is much more probable. I would still opt for the high revving I6 though.

The 400hp V8 in the Z4 would be scarey fast. I think it would sell like hotcakes to be honest. I'd want one.

Honestly, who gives a sh1t? Do you think BMW does? They sold their Z8's, it's time to move on. They want to make money, so they don't give a crap about cars which are no longer theirs as they are owned by individuals.

Cars ain't an investment anyway... well, few are, but it seems like too many people are way too worried about a particular car losing money, it's life and it happens, as crappy as it may sound :\
