We could pretend that BMW dressed the Z8 successor as a Caterpillar D9, and some less-intelligent perusers of the blog might believe us. Bryant From Alberta, Canada and the Guy Apparently Named Zach come to mind. But the truth of the matter is slightly more prosaic. Still, we're thinking back to Operation Fortitude from the Second War, during which a young Bill Blass was employed sewing up inflatable faux-tanks to confuse the Germans into thinking that George Patton was readying his men to invade Calais. It's the obvious next-step in the increasingly elaborate pre-production camo wars. Winding Road's got the more prosaic reality.

I've been lucky enough to have the chance to drive a couple Z8's. I still prefered driving the M5s, but they didn't have the great styling or feel that the Z8's gave. It definately wasn't the same feel as a Z4, but looking at this supposed Z9 it makes me think of a fat Z4, and I definately don't like the styling on the doors. I would say I'm praying that's the new corvette!
