Might as well say Good-Year blimp, because it has as much in common with that as a 2002. There is not one body part on that car that comes from the 2002. Without boring you with too much trivia, let me say there were lots of BMW ventures involving eastern bloc countries that yielded some bizarre results. BMW sold engines, and componants to various entities. I believe this car simply has a BMW 2.0 liter motor.

Eastern bloc countries had a thing about doing bad versions of existing cars also. There is a car that looks very much like a Jaguar XJ6. There are tons of 2002 knock offs. I think this is some nightmarish love child of a BMW coupe and a 911. Because the 2002 was a big hit, they probably borrowed the name. Never heard of a TIG either. Ti, Tii, Turbo, Glas (not really a 2002), cabriolet, Bauer targa, Touring, that's about it I think.
