It's been a mere half-year since BMW introduced its new Z4 Coupe as a "concept" at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and now the Z and its M-powered sibling will be making their North American debut at the New York auto show next week (represent!). Now that's what we call managing expectations: tease, tease, fulfill. The timeline should be taken as a textbook case for automakers birthing vehicles into the new, instant-gratification universe. US prices are thus: $40,795 for Z4 Coupe 3.0si and $49,995 for the M Coupe, which seem to us to be on the high side of dead on.
