BMW to introduce Z4 coupe
Sales of the Z4 have not met BMW's expectations, falling every year since the car's introduction in 2002 to 25,298 units this year. A coupe version of the Z4 is being planned to bolster sales until the car's replacement, dubbed the E89, arrives in 2009. The coupe appears to have a Bangle butt, although overall we think the look is more pleasing than the awkward BMW M Coupe that appeared near the end of the first generation's run. If the coupe does sell well, expect another coupe version of the E89 when it debuts.
