Bmw entry-level sports car concept coming to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 8, 2011

According to the latest media reports, it appears that Bmw is preparing a small open-top sports car concept for this year’s Geneva Motor Show. This means that all the rumors regarding a smaller and cheaper version of the Z4, dubbed Z2, will become reality.

The new car will be a perfect rival to the entry-level sports car from Porsche and the new Volkswagen small roadster previewed by the BlueSport Concept. The new Bmw car was confirmed at the launch of the 2012 Bmw 6-Series Convertible, but the source declined to give any details.

So, we don’t know exactly if the car will follow the Bmw philosophy and come as a rear-wheel-drive or will be front-wheel-drive and preview the new generation of sports cars.

Regarding the powertrain, German magazine Autobild says that the car will be powered by a new 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and will use the rear-drive platform of the next-generation 1-Series.

Still, Car magazine says that the new car will be manufactured under firm’s new i-Project sub-brand which will focus on front-wheel drive models. In March we will get our answer, so stay tuned! [via TheAge]
