|2010 BMW Z4 Convertible|
The new Z4 gets all-new styling that is both more aggressive (front end) and cleaner (back end). A new Z4 has a two-piece retractable hard-top that ditches the soft-top from the last generation.
The Z4 also employs BMW's new naming scheme (sDrive) with the sDrive30i and sDrive35i. The sDrive30i is powered by a 255 horsepower 3.0L 6-cylinder engine and the sDrive35i is powered by the 300 horsepower 3.0L twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine. Both engines can be mated to either a a 6-speed manual or a dual-clutch 7-speed automatic with paddle shifters. The sDrive30i is also available with a six-speed automatic. Zero to 62mph in 5.2 seconds (5.1 seconds for a Double Clutch Transmission-equipped car) and an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph. The Z4's strong performance credentials are matched in terms of economy and emissions. The Z4 sDrive35i is estimated at combined fuel economy figure of 31 mpg and CO2 emissions of 219g/km.

The new Z4 looks better than the previous version, but is still no match to the Porsche Cayman's styling, IMO. Your thoughts, fellow motorheads?
