BMW Z3 and Z4 : The Complete Story


James Taylor


BMW, that most performance-oriented of car companies, had no affordable sports roadster in its line-up before 1995. Stung into action by Mazda’s revival of the classic two-seat roadster, the Germany company quickly staked its claim with the Z3, a classic long-nose, short-tail design that used existing BMW mechanical hardware to good effect. This new book tells the story of BMW’s Z3 and Z4 two-seater roadsters and coupés, which since 1995 have been at the forefront of the affordable sports car market. The complete history of the Z3 and both generations of Z4 are covered as well as full specifications of each model and the formidable M Power derivatives.
