Next generation BMW Z4 to be sportier more agile

The updated BMW Z4 is due out around 2015 and will be a more dynamic sports car than the current two-door roadster.

When you think of the best driver’s cars in the world, the BMW Z4 certainly isn’t the first car that comes to mind. In fact it may not even be on the list. But BMW is planning on changing all that according to a report by Inside Line. They say that “well-placed company insiders” have told them that the next generation BMW Z4 will be more dynamic than previous BMW roadsters. The successor to the current Z4 is due out around 2015.

The challenge for BMW will be to make enough changes to the Z4 to improve it, without alienating buyers who’ve come to appreciate the long hood and compliant suspension. The automaker is attempting to make the next BMW Z4 more agile and sportier to drive like the Porsche Boxter and the Nissan 370Z. But both of those cars have shorter hoods that allow for better weight distribution, while the longer hood of the BMW Z4 will have to be shortened.
