With all the recent talk about the offsprings of the BMW-Toyota collaboration, we expected a plethora of renderings of the upcoming models to come out. And yet, we were rather disappointed, only a few automotive renderers taking the plunge.
The hesitation is easy to understand as nobody really knows what’s going to happen and everything we have to work with is speculation. The latest man to enter this dangerous trend is Remco Meulendijk, the one behind RM.Design.

His take on the upcoming Z4 uses the current model and decks it with the new styling cues that are more and more prominent in BMW’s models. Round the back, the taillights have been changed with one featuring the LED L-Shape we’ve been seeing on every car launched after the F15 X5.

The side sills are more aggressive while the front fenders are now sporting gills that are meant to make the cars more efficient. The retracting roof was kept as a hardtop, like on the current model, while the rear bumper received a hardcore, carbon fiber diffuser that hosts two exhaust tail pipes.

As for the real-life model that BMW will launch, the rumors say it will be sharing its platform with the upcoming Supra from Toyota but it will keep the traditional inline 6-cylinder architecture alive. That means the engine from the upcoming Z4/Z5 model will be used by the Japanese as well, probably with different power outputs. Another hypothesis claims that the two will also have electric motors, turning them into lag-free sport cars.
