Back in 2010, BMW decided that what made the most sense for its production-based racing program was to run its sporty Z4 roadster.
Four years ago, the Internet gazed upon the glory of a BMW Z4 getting a Viper V10 pulled from a Ram truck crammed up its nostrils. But back then the car was a work in progress. Now the car is complete, and it’s for sale, too.
According to German publication BimmerToday, BMW waited in the shadows until the last Valencia Orange Z4 Roadster rolled off the line before quietly ending production of the E89 forever last week.
It was in third position when it entered the pits, but then it decided to fire up properly and get a bit further from a podium finish.
Say, what’s going on with that BMW-Toyota joint sports car project that’s been in the works since 2012? It’s apparently chugging along as both companies figure out exactly what they want to get out of it. According to a new report, that could mean different sized sports cars for each brand.
AC Schnitzer's goal of making bad decisions into a viable business model consistently delivers. The latest bit of evidence is this BMW Z4 with the M50d's diesel shoved into the nose and tuned to put out 620 lb-ft of torque. That should do.
Love the beastly sounding BMW Z4s that run in United SportsCar? We've got two of the guys who drive them in the GT Le Mans class for BMW Team RLL, ready to answer any and all of your questions: Graham Rahal, who usually runs with the team in IndyCar, and sportscar veteran Bill Auberlen.
What's going on with that Toyota-BMW sports car joint venture, long rumored to spawn the next BMW Z4 and Toyota Supra? It feels like it's been in the works longer than the next Dr. Dre album, but today we got some news: it's moving forward, for reals.
The N52-powered E89 with the M Sport package and manual transmission is an interesting combination of new and old in a rather often overlooked roadster: the second generation of BMW's sports car. It has electric steering, an electric parking brake, a ridiculous name, and drive-by-wire. It's also RWD, has defeatable…
The announcement of the BMW-Toyota partnership has been as perplexing as it is exciting. Nothing solid has come of the deal yet, but it's supplied the world with scores of crazy rumors. But a new report in Nikkei Asia Review may be the most solid one yet. It also heralds the return of the Toyota Supra.
Thirty-year-old Christopher Adam Tang, the BMW Z4 driver whose purported fastest lap around Manhattan infuriated New York police, was arrested after officers tracked him down with surveillance cameras.
Christopher Adam Tang, better known as Afroduck, never showed his face, voice, or any other identifying characteristic in the video of his very illegal 24 minute record run around Manhattan. But here he is in handcuffs.
An anonymous driver using the pseudonym 'Afroduck' claims to have lapped Manhattan in a record 24 minutes, seven seconds. Now New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly is out to catch him.
The first illegal, dangerous, record lap of Manhattan we know of was Alex Roy's 27 minute run in 2001. In 2010, a group called CBC broke that with 26:03. Now a new driver claims 24:07. But what exactly is a lap of Manhattan, and how do you set the record? UPDATE: We have spoken with the driver.
With the exception of the Cayman/Boxster twins, traditional German sports cars tend to be overlooked. I don't think about the BMW Z4 that often even though I generally like it, in particular the sDrive28i fitted with the TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter engine. None of the changes to the 2014 BMW Z4 will likely change this…
We have seen some amazingly terrible parking attempts in our time, so trust us when we say this one is certainly among the greats. Watch as this lady bashes, knocks, and crunches her BMW Z4 while miserably failing to execute the simplest parking maneuver possible.
There's something extraordinarily sexy about a woman who can handle a car. Especially when they also dream that their plain-Jane-Z4 is really a BMW Z4 GT3 — just like the woman in this BMW web advert. Rowr!
Conundrum alert gearheads! Does your lust for diesel outweigh your desire for speed? Is a sexy BMW drop-top more or less sexy when you drop in a more powerful motor for a top-o-the-line diesel fourbanger? Would you rock AC Shnitzer's 99d concept car?
