What is the status of the Z2?

I haven't seen anything lately about it. I know some have said that the MINI Roadster filled the Z2's void, but I don't remember seeing anything definite. So is it dead?

So far the word is that the Z2 becomes the Z3 and the Z4 becomes the Z5.
The Z3 effectively replaces the Z4 for the mid-sized Roadster market whereas the Z5 allows the Z4 to move up a notch yet retain the folding hard-top with the Z3 going back to a soft-top.

But the Z3 will be a more focused than the current generation correct? Personally I think that the current Z4 is too GT oriented for the midsize roaster class.

interesting... any word on coupe versions of the Z3 and Z5? and whether the Z3 will be a FWD or a RWD?

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!
