I doubt it was ever meant to be a profitable car, it's sole job is to bring people into the showroom, roadsters do that well.

In reality, it was rebodied 3 series, so most of the changes were done to make it a roadster, the rest was off the shelf stuff

Doubt you'll see it with how much cooling is needed for modern engines, especially turbo cars.

Yeah, that would be great, if most of the "openings" weren't blocked-off fakes.

I like it except for those damn flaring nostrils. That's one design trait that I wish would just die already.

Then you'll have to buy its Toyota platform mate, the Supra, which will only come as a coupe. me, if there's a convertible version of a car, I'm getting the convertible. it's what REAL sports cars are meant to be.

I didn't realize Lexus made the Z4.

I doubt they'll be cross-shopped but the Lexus LC seems approximately twice as good as this Z4.
