    Would be great but they don't have the balls to do it. I'd trade my M3 for it.

    I hope we get an M version but not if it is just like the 1M Coupe.

    I'm not sure if BMW has an overall winning record vs. porsche but that year they were dominating them.

    Yes , in 1970-2010 period time Bmw is not even close to Porsche but in the last 7-8 years Bmw is ahead i believe

    I have said the same thing.

    They have got to stick the S65 in another car before they abandon na all together.

    I agree and I am all for it but I just don't think BMW has that kind of pride anymore. At least give us one last great NA M car... a last hurrah. The Z4 M is the PERFECT fit for it.

    Should get some kind of petition going, for a Z4M coupe with the S65. A good send off to bmw motorsports na history. Get it up on other car blogs/forums. As a bonus, it could bring some additional traffic over here. Get some signitures, then send it off to bmw.

    I like your thinking and I'm all for it but I doubt BMW cares any more.

    The fact that we would have to go to the length of a petition to get BMW to do a Z4 M coupe says a lot.
