Mercedes made the same mistake with the SLK, I think the death for both of them was going to the hard top, should have left that to a more expensive model.

Personally I think the Z4 should keep the folding hardtop and not offer a coupe, but they should introduce a Z2 soft top RWD and Z2/Z3 RWD Coupe (along with a Z2M/Z3M of both with the M2 engine).
Or they should make the Z4/Z5 even more high end and compete against the Jaguar F Type with them, Coupe and convertible, along with a M version (with M5/M6 engine to compete with Jaguar's R).
