The rumor pot regarding BMW's rumored Z6 Mercedes SL-beater continues on a low simmer. But what will a changing of the guard at BMW mean for the project? The latest comes from Car4, which reports today BMW's new chairman, Norbert Reithofer — who will replace Helmut Panke in September — wants to bring this model to production. Other than that, conjecture remains status quo: inspired by the California Spyder concept (see below the fold), using an aluminium spaceframe structure, fitted with components from the 5- and 6-Series, and the M5/M6's V10 under the hood. Hurry up, now, and wait.
