The new BMW Z4 actually looks...well, great.

I've been anxious to see what the new production version of the Supra will look like, but I was pleasantly surprised by looks of the new Z4, which shares the platform...

I just love two seaters.

Meh. Don't love the Dodge pickup aggro grille treatement. There's definitely more than a little Fiata in there as well.

Another over-stylized car. The overall shape is blah. Not impressed.

BMW has been overstyling their cars for 20 years, why should this car be any different? To be fair, it's an industry wide problem. I think it all started with Audi's enormous gaping grill.

Audi started it and Lexus took it down a truly horrendous path. Of course, the Koreans, copying everything, have tried hard to up the anty...

That is why I call them gaudy. aka Audi

From a pure design perspective, I'm still more of a fan of the Z3, which reminds me more of the vintage British roadster look.

The Z4, and now this...not impressed.

BMW design has been in a downward spiral since the F series. Overwrought, heavy handed....like Wagner.
