We lift the lid on the next Z4

Is this the next BMW Z4, Z6 or Z9? Time will tell... (AUTOMEDIA)

Earlier photos of another camouflaged prototype of a new BMW roadster have sparked quite a debate on the spy-community as to whether the model we're seeing here is the next generation Z4 or a totally new roadster dubbed, by most, as the Z9 ? though it could be called Z6.

Fortunately, we're here not directly confronted with the question whether the car will get a canvas soft-top or a retractable hardtop as these are the best shots yet of the new roadster with the roof laid down!

Both sides have strong talking points even though the camouflaged roadster that we?re seeing is obviously larger than the Z4.

But then again, according to earlier reports, the next-generation Z4 would be doing a bit of growing up so as to make room for an entry-level roadster dubbed Z2 which will be based on the 1-series hatch.

That would very well justify its larger dimensions.

On the other hand, noticing the side window covers and the folding metal roof, we're probably talking about the Z9 as we highly doubt that the next-gen Z4 will be fitted with an electric hard-top.

Whatever it may be - we're here facing another exciting machine from the guys in Munich! Let?s look forward to it.
