BMW and Toyota Confirm Joint Sportscar

 Last year was filled with rumors and allegations about what the collaboration between BMW and Toyota will actually bring to the market. Up until the last month of the year, the only good thing that came out of the whole pact seemed to be the BMW diesel engines some Toyotas would be fitted with.

It seems like the two giants waited for 2014 to finally confirm what everyone was already suggesting: they will be releasing a sportscar based on their joint efforts. The good news came from BMW’s own Development Chief, Herbert Diess.

“We have agreed on a joint architecture for a sports car. What is important is that there will be two different vehicles that are authentic to the two brands,” Diess said for Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
Based on what the man is saying, it seems like the two might be using the same chassis and engine but that’s about it. Whilst Toyota fans could expect a follow-up on the iconic Supra, the BMW aficionados should expect a new Z4. At the moment, even possible hybrids are being rumored but we’ll just have to wait and see what will come out of this whole thing.
