SHARE THIS ARTICLE predicted the California Spyder we saw at the 2005 L.A. Auto Show would be the basis for the next BMW Z8.

Today, Edmunds is jumping on the Spies bandwagon (albeit a little late) saying this would be the case.

The new car would enter the German carmaker's lineup above the Z4 and is described as being more mass-market than the super-exclusive Z8. The idea is said to have been inspired by the arresting California Spyder concept developed by BMW's DesignWorks studio last year as part of a design program for the Los Angeles auto show.

Is this the next BMW Z8?
