i think they plan on making the next z8 a higher volume vehicle, unlike the original z8, with different engine options and pricing.

"Engine options include a 3.0 liter twin turbo inline-6 gasoline making 306hp, a 4.4 liter V8 turbo with 408hp, BMW

<- BMW purist

This is blasphemous.

The original Z8 was an instant collector's item, with much of it's design cues from the classic BMW 507

It was limited production (only 400 to the US per year). They better not make that thing. How f'in CHEAP of them.

I loved the orig. Z8, and this one looks even better IMO (finally, a Bangle-era design that looks great @ first glance!). Too bad I'm not rich, otherwise I'd be putting a deposit on one ASAP!
