The Z2 will only steal sales from the Z4. Both are 2-seaters and both are roadsters. The Z2 might look better, but evidently many ppl like the SLK better than both of the Z cars...

BTW, the 1-series touring pic doesn't work for me.

The reason because Z4 is low on sales, is because it is quite expensive for a car like that.

I think Z4's price is the biggest reason why its not selling well. Agreed. Also I think its the packaging and exectution. People just don't think its the best buy for money and go with Boxter and new SLK instead. Z4 needs more personality.

The Z2 is a small 1 series-based roadster to go up against the MX-5.

The Z4 has been underperforming sales-wise (just check BMW's yearly sales report), but this is attributed to a segment-wide sales slump (although I'm not sure if that is affecting the SLK or not ;D).

Mercedes-Benz sold about 16,000 SLK roadster in 2004, about 9,000 just in Germany..how many Z4's did BMW sell? I am just curious, dont wanna mock BMW.
