FT-1

Is this concept Toyota just showed at the Detroit Auto Show an indication as to what we can expect the next gen Z4 to look like? I assume the FT-1 is a result of that cooperation between BMW and Toyota that went through the news cycle a while back and which would (supposedly) produce the next gen Z4 ...

(It's a concept, I am somewhat neutral about its looks at this time.)

A BMW insider posted this on E90 post a while ago about the upcoming Z5

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=883003

It has a concept sketch

Quote:
There was the plan to absorb the Z4 iS into the M Performance line but this fell through in the final hour.

We will shortly be presenting our collaboration with Toyota for a new interpretation of a new highly focused sports car first as a concept. The production car will be called the Z5 which allows us to align a new UKL (FWD) based Z1 with equivalent MINI sports car along with a mid sized Z3 (the name is coming back) which again could be aligned with Toyota. Although for some markets Toyota might use Lexus branding.

The Z5 Roadster will feature exterior and interior design from BMW, as well as BMW engines. Toyota will supply optional hybrid technology and BMW will supply CFRP in its construction. A coupe will follow.

The new "Z" design is influenced by the Vision ConnectedDrive Concept Car.

* Image below used for illustration purpose.
My ears perked up when I saw "highly focused sports car", "CFRP construction", and "coupe". Hopefully this means a track weapon with light and rigid carbon fiber tub and the S55 motor from the upcoming F80 M3

Whatever concepts or sketches you see now will likely bear very little resemblance to the final product, they very rarely do.
