2012 BMW Z2

CARBARN  | 2012 BMW Z2 | A new, entry-level roadster based on the 1-series and powered by a range of economical four-cylinder engines may be brewing at BMW.

That Speculation would lead us to believe That a range of four-cylinders, including a 120hp (90kW) entry-level models and a 211hp (157kW) turbocharged unit Could be on the table for the smallest of BMW's roadsters. The soft-top roadster would be fairly light, however, and the Thrifty four-cylinder engines would be efficient. This combination would make it an ideal competitor for cars like the Mazda MX-5 and Lotus Elise.

Performance from the punchy engines would be sporting Likely, but not fast: estimates put 0-62mph (0-100km / h) times around 7 seconds, and top speed at about 150mph (240km / h). A high-performance variant with BMW's 3.0L twin-turbocharged six is reportedly under consideration as is a hybrid model.


Four-cylinder engines with turbochargers and direct injection of U.S. Could eventually see sale, but the first applications for Them Will Likely be conservative 3-series sedans, not sports cars.
