BMW had reams of news of their own wonderfulness laid forth with peculiar pronunciation by Tom Purvis, the UK-born head of BMW North America. So is the Z4 hardtop a "Coop" or a "Coopay," Tompkins? You can't have it both ways. Or we guess you can, since you're the boss of us. He spoke strongly of wanting to bring diesels to America. All in all, it was one of the more impressive speeches of the day, actually if a little long. The BMW M6 was at the centrepiece of his presentation. But we already know all about that car, so we won't bore you with the details. But the picture shows you that it was blue, and that's somehow significant, we're sure. Can we have one to drive already?
