BMW continues the development of the Z5, which will be the replacement of the Z4. The car is expected to be presented at the end of 2017 or more likely early in 2018 and it will be the result of a collaboration between BMW and Toyota, that have developed jointly a platform for sports cars.
The Z5 will be available with a 2.0-liter turbo engine found in the 330i and a 3.0-liter engine of the 340i. For now there are no information for an M Power model, however rumors want the Z5 to be offered also with a hybrid engine, with the company offering also a four-wheel drive system in the additional equipment.
Both the BMW Z5, and the Toyota Supra will be manufactured in the same factory in Austria, but will have different chassis codes. The Z5 has the code G29, while the Supra is codenamed J29, with the Z5 being offered as a roadster with a fabric soft top, for weight savings, while the Supra will be available only as a coupe.
