BMW will be introducing a concept vehicle that previews the all-new Z4 roadster in coming August and planning to go on sale in late 2018.
BMW stopped manufacturing the Z4 in August, 2016 because its sales were rather dismal. The roadster is thought to roll off the production line because rumors about a Z4 replacement called the Z5 have swirled. However, the upcoming vehicle would not be called Z5, they are Z4’s next-gen model. The concept is going to be introduced at this year’s Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance set for August 16-20.

At the same time, Toyota is planning to manufacture a coupe to be released under the iconic Supra badge. In addition, the Z4 is going to share its chassis with the Toyota Supra.
