More Than a Side Note

The 2020 BMW Z4 Is More Than Just a Side Note To the New Toyota Supra
Anybody who tries to claim BMW doesn't position itself as a performance brand anymore doesn't really know what they're talking about.

Z4 a Lot More Torque

Dyno Test Reveals the 2020 BMW Z4 Has a Lot More Torque Than BMW Claims
Everybody went crazy when Car And Driver put the new 2020 Toyota Supra on a dyno and found more power at the wheels than what was claimed by Toyota at the crank. Sadly, the Supra's sister car, the 2020 BMW Z4, isn't as surprising.

Supra vs Z4 pt1

TG's Toyota Supra mega-test pt1: Supra vs BMW Z4
Ne'er before have two cars been mentioned in the same breath more often. Supra and Z4, or 'Zupra' if you ask the wittier corners of the Top Gear office. We all know the story by now: Toyota wanted to revive the Supra badge but needed a partner to make it financially viable.

Roadster Drag Race

VIDEO: Roadster Drag Race: BMW Z4 Vs. Porsche Boxster GTS Vs. Audi TTS
We've seen this before. A drag race where the drivers could feel the air combing through their hairs. It was a bit of a mismatch then, however, as the contenders were a McLaren 720 Spider, a BMW S1000RR superbike, and an Ariel Atom 4 lightweight sports car.

Z4 Worth Hefty Price

I drove a $64,000 BMW Z4 to see if this high-end roadster is worth the hefty price tag - here's the verdict
I sampled BMW's revived roadster, a 2019 Z4 sDrive30i that has been outfitted with a bunch of M-Sport performance extras. The BMW Z4 has always been a very sporty two-door, and the new model is no exception. I did like the car in the 30i trim, with its 255-horsepower four-cylinder engine.

No Z4 Hardtop

BMW Z4 Designer Says There's No Chance of a Hardtop
The new BMW Z4 is quite a thrill to drive. I've had the pleasure of experiencing it a couple of times, in M40i guise, and I found it a lot of fun, without being scary fast. That's actually the one thing that would make me choose it over the M850i Convertible but that's a different topic.

True Roadster Fashion

2019 BMW Z4 M40i Review - True Roadster Fashion
BMW has had a special relationship with roadsters since the 1930s. The BMW 328 was designed back then and unleashed onto the world as BMW's image as a "sporty" car maker was beginning to take shape. It wasn't necessarily because roadsters are particularly sporty as a body type, but because the 328 proved to be quite successful in various racing events.

E46 M3 CSL Collector’s Item

VIDEO: VIDEO: The E46 BMW M3 CSL Might Be a Better Collector's Item Than a Driver's Car
The BMW E46 design is widely considered one of the company's best. Maybe I only think that because it was "the new M3" when my friends and I got driver's licenses, but I know I'm not the only one who imagined the Euro-spec E46 M3 CSL was the ultimate street-legal M3 of our time.

Z4 ‘less is more’

The four-cylinder BMW Z4 is an exercise in 'less is more'
