The Z4 is one of the beautiful rear drive sports cars produced by BMW. However we are not actually mourning the discontinuing of this car. This car had an impressive technology and a great six cylinder engine.
It was much better than its predecessor however an overly imprecise steering and poor handling had made it a very expensive but not a really good sports car. It was available at a starting price of $50,000 for a four cylinder version while one had to pay almost $60,000 for a six cylinder version.
If we compare this car with others, there were better options like that of Corvette and Boxster available in less price. You could buy cooler rides such as F-Type with this kind of money too.
Now with a Z5 announced, we are actually looking forward to a much better car than this one. We have been told that Z5 will be produced with the collaboration of Toyota and BMW.
It will also be available in four cylinder and six cylinder variants. We are also hoping that Z5 will give us a look at Toyota’s first ever sports car produced by the company.
So for the fans who are off to mourn the discontinuing of Z4, it is a great news that there will be a better replacement of this car available in a few months. We are looking forward to Z5 to be a fine car for sure.
