Hopefully, the Z5 will offer an amazing driving dynamic where the 4cyl works perfectly for it. But I suspect the 4cyl should be saved for a Z3.

The F-Type gives me a similar feeling that the Z4 Coupe did when it first came out. I hope the Z5 can match that feeling. You are setting the expectation high by going after such a gorgeous looking and sounding car. Please live up to them.
I could envision a Three cylinder in the future Z3 such an engine has serious potential as well as a serious weight advantage. BMW have developed a 3 Cylinder with performance up to 300PS.
The M850i is evidence that BMW have got their mojo back when it comes to dynamic sports cars...
