Nah, I think most Beemers have to go through the process of Banglisation (read: mingerisation) before being declared fit for release.

That thing has a long way to go.

Could this be an indiction of a possible case of BMW/Lotus platform sharing for the new Esprit? I suppose it wouldn't do the brand or the car much harm, anything associated with BMW has to be good...

The busiest speculating German magazine (Autobild) created those drawings some weeks ago:







As always they will have no idea how it will look like, but this is no reason for them not to draw it.

They say that it will be a sportier alternative to the Mercedes SL, produced from 2010 to 2017, about 15,000 cars every year. Prices in the area from Euro 80k to 100k. Low weight, and a lot of high tech (for example a transparent folding roof that can be obscured). Asked about a Z8 (or Z10) BMW said "We are thinking about it".

By the way, since 2004 Chris Bangle is not responsible for the BMW design any longer.
