Last week, BMW took the wraps off a car everybody had already seen, the new Z4 Roadster. We've had a few years to get accustomed to the fact that it now has a soft-top instead of folding metal, but still wish BMW would have offered pure coupe version as well.
There's been two of them so far... sort of. In addition to the E86 from two generations ago, we also had the Z3 Coupe before that, which was a shooting brake. And fixed roof gives you so much more than smooth lines and not having to worry about rain coming in. For example, a Z4 Coupe from about 2006 or so is about twice as stiff as its roadster counterpart.

Also, the E46 M3 is a BMW cult car, but the Z4 M Coupe had the same S54 3.2-liter engine. Why aren't people writing a petition for a modern-day twin-turbo version?

Even if asked, BMW would probably not put a room on the Z4. The market is very small, and the only reason they could even afford to make another roadster is that Toyota is sharing costs. Their Supra can be considered the hard-top version of the Z4, equipped with the same 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter turbo engines.

Of course, you could argue that chassis tuning will make them handle entirely differently. But what if the mounting points are the same - could you put BMW bumpers and lights on the Supra? If you could, it would probably end up looking like this X-Tomi Design rendering.

The roof he used for this image comes from Toyota. More specifically, it's been imported from the old FT-1 concept, since the production Supra won't have quite the same pronounced wedge shape.

What, this story needs another rendering? We couldn't agree more. That's why we included the "Z4 Luxury Edition" frmo Aksyonov Nikita. His take on the car looks like it's playing to compete with the Mercedes-Benz  SL-Class, thanks to an infusion of bright chrome elements from the 7 Series. It's a bling-bling overload!
