Say Goodbye To the Actual BMW Z4! BMW Is Already Preparing Its Successor!
|   Friday, September 02, 2016
German automaker BMW stopped production of one of its most popular sports cars: the Z4 model.
The second generation of the BMW Z4 has reached the end of the road today, after the Bavarians produced the last specimen of a series of 115,000 units, assembled in 2009 at its plant in Regensburg.

The last BMW Z4 assembled by Germans engineers was a sDrive35is painted in Valencia Orange Metallic shade and powered by the well-known turbocharged 3.0-liter N54, also found with Series 1 M Coupe.


With the withdrawal of Z4, BMW is preparing a successor which will most likely be called BMW Z5, and has already been surprised several times while being tested on public roads. It was developed with the future of the sports car from Toyota, the successor of the legendary Supra.

Both cars will be assembled at Magna Steyr plant in Graz, Austria, and production will begin in 2018. Compared to the model it replaces, the Z5 will definitively give up the solid ceiling, in favor of a soft top type, in order to save some weight and gain more space inside the trunk.
Both the German model as well as that of Toyota will be powered by BMW engines, apart from the top version which will have a hybrid engine developed by the Japanese automaker.

For now, the Munich manufacturer has not provided many official details about the successor model of the Z4, and it is not known exactly whether the most powerful version of Z5 will be a pure-blood M. Although some voices say that this will not happen, all we have to do is wait until we hear something official coming from the Germans from BMW.

As stated above, the production of the new BMW Z5 will start in two years, while next year the model will give up its camouflage that hides all the major lines surprised during tests.
