It has been officially announced that BMW aims to wrap up production of the current Z4. The latest news proves that the two-seat roadster will disappear from the line-up at the end of August. On August 22, a Valencia Orange Metallic Z4 sDrive35 is left the Regensburg plant as the final example of BMW’s once-popular roadster. A local newspaper in Austria is reporting that Magna-Steyr will build the replacement for the BMW Z4 and Toyota’s born-again Supra.
About 60,000 of the two jointly developed cars will start production in 2018. The Z4 replacement, which could be renamed the Z5, and Toyota’s Supra successor will be built at the Austrian factory in Graz. The Toyota version will see the rebirth of the Supra badge, while the BMW, code-named G29 will revert to its original, lighter, soft-top body style. A coupe version of the BMW is in the works, along with a range that includes both four- and six-cylinder power, plus a race-bred hybrid for extra performance.
