1. Anything "bad and cheap" with a BMW badge will sell (i.e. BMW 2er Active Tourer).

2. Anything "good and expensive" with a BMW badge will not sell (i.e. BMW Z4 M Coupé).

3. What you say, "the lack of RWD will not affect sales", is correct. See point 1. The same goes for the Toyota GT86, the lack of turbocharger does not affect sales. Only the guys on the internet a crying for it, were it turbocharged, they anyway wouldn't buy it.

4. And that is were we come back to point 4. As it will not sell, costs will be high and the product will not be profitable. That is why the Z1/Z2/Z3/"what-ever-they-call-it" will still be RWD, being developed on the co-developed BMW-Toyota sports car platform.

From what I understand, you will anyway not like this car: RWD, 1200 kg, 2.0l I4, 300 PS.

Me I will. The "Z2" reminds me Alfa Romeo, many years of promises, but only wind. Hopefully this time it will be reality.
