Since Autobild has a new rendering out on the forthcoming BMW Z2, figured it was as good a time as any to talk about the new baby roadster. Destined for 2014 production the Z2 will be based on the UKL platform that will underpin everything from the next generation MINIs to other fwd BMWs, the Z2 looks to slot in under the Z4 as a reinterpretation of the original Z3 – albeit with front wheel drive.

Clad with a simple and light folding soft-top and a range of three and four cylinder engines, the Z2 will slow in well below the current Z4 but slightly above the forthcoming 1 Series F2X based convertible.
