2009 BMW Z4 Photo Gallery

Update: The 2009  BMW Z4 has  been revealed and here you can find a photo gallery with the best photos.

Yesterday we broke the news that BMW is going to build a 4 cylinder twin-turbo engine and today, we have something even better. All the BMW Z4 fans have believed that the 2009 model will come with a hard top, similar to what MB has on their SLK. We believed that as well, especially after we saw the last spy photos a couple of days ago.

Well, we were wrong this time and today, after talking to one of our friends at BMW(which we would like to thank with this occasion), the new 2009 BMW Z4 will actually have both options: a hard AND a soft top. This is pretty much similar to what Mazda offers for their MX5 and I honestly believe that this is the best thing BMW has ever done for their Z4 fans.

By reading some of your comments on here or other BMW forums, the bimmer fans were divided, some of them were applauding BMW for going the hard top route, like Mercedes, but many others were still rooting for a soft top. Why? Well, mainly because the car will weigh less and it will offer better performance. Of course, the West and South Coast people were some of the biggest fans of the soft rooftop. Gee, wonder why?! :)

Once again, we are here to bring you the latest and the best news from the BMW world and even though we like to speculate sometimes, we still try to check our sources before we post a big announcement(like the one yesterday). 

Now, let’s hear your opinions on this!
