BMW Z4 Models and Z4 History

New and Used Z4 Prices, BMW Z4 Model Years and History

When introduced in 2003, the BMW Z4 sports roadster entered the marketplace with big shoes to fill. The Z4 replaced the popular BMW Z3 as a more refined interpretation of two-passenger sports car riding. The 2003 model year vehicle was offered with a 184-horsepower 2.5-liter engine as well as a more potent 3.0-liter powerplant generating 225-horsepower. Three transmission options could be equipped on the 2003 BMW Z4 with a five-speed manual, five-speed automatic and a five-speed SMG (Sequential Manual Gearbox) was available. Tailored to performance, the two-seat interior also invoked a sense of luxury with power mirrors and a standard 10-speaker stereo system. In 2006, a permanent roof coupe model joined the BMW Z4 roadster. Also in for the 2006, a high-performance M version of the Z4 was introduced. Energized by a 3.2-liter inline-six engine also used to power the BMW M3, the 330-horsepower Z4 M featured some subtle styling enhancements. Acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour was accomplished in as little as 4.8 seconds behind the wheel of the BMW Z4 M. The Z4 M and the coupe model were discontinued when a second-generation model of the two-seat sports car came to dealerships. Along with sharpening some of the bodylines and increasing base engine power to 255 horsepower, the 2009 redesign would also feature an all-new retractable hardtop roof. High intensity discharge headlights, cruise control and rain-sensing windshield wipers were standard on the base Z4 30i roadster. From 2002 to 2008, the BMW Z4 was manufactured in Greer, South Carolina. The production of the second-generation model was moved to Germany. In 2012, the base six-cylinder engine of the BMW Z4 was replaced with a more fuel-efficient turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four.
