so I wouldn't be surprised! With the Audi TTS, the Honda S2000, it seems like every manufacturer and their subsidary wants to introduce a roadster. There is even talk of a rotary miata, or a miller cycle miata with 160-170 HP. The KIA Elan might come here. There are rumours of a V6 Slk, the boxcar "S" also. Oh, and what about the Dodge copperhead, the plymouth pronto, BMW itself trotting out a 2000 year bug-eyed sprite (since they own several British marquees now, including the Rover group). The Z3 will have to keep evolving to stay with the competition. Actually, I am pretty glad that the 98-99 2.8 difference seems to have been the least till now, if you consider every other difference that happened in the z3 lineup!
