New Rear Shape

For the new Z4 the more compact Form of the pair of visible lines speaks. Along with the mile-long hood and a new rear, the GT is a bit like the Porsche Carrera, a little to the BMW 8 Concept looks like. Perhaps it is a near-series prototypes.

Brother of the new Supra

The new Z4 will share a Platform with the also-new Toyota Supra. The Munich and the Japanese are working together on this new sports car-family. The Toyota the role of the coupe to all appearances, the Z4 will take the Roadster Part. The dark Teaser image, it could be a kind of Targa.
