From Munich, the facts:
- The next generation Z4 will be out in 2015
- BMW’s next Z4 will be more agile and sportier to drive, although the exterior will be an “evolution” not a “revolution” in order not to alienate current fans
Insiders tell us the new Z4 will be a challenge to the Porsche Boxster, competing with the latter in agility and handling. The long hood of the current generation will be cropped to improve speed, and the lighter N20 engine will improve weight distribution. Exterior changes will be conservative in order to maintain fan loyalty, and with BMW’s emerging philosophy of timelessness, they’re avoiding stand-out features that might age quickly. At this point, we’re guaranteed more exhilaration, and that ever-evolving BMW performance.
Fun fact: The Z in Z4 stands for the German word, Zukunft, meaning future.
