With a debut expected in 2017, the Z5 will once again be a roadster, only this time it’ll ditch the retractable hard top in favor of a soft top in order to conserve weight (Toyota's car will have a fixed roof). The Z5 will feature a "more radical front-mid-engine bias" than the Z4 as well. Expect power to come from a 2.0-liter turbo four that’ll have various degrees of tuning, starting with 190 hp. Optional upgrades will be 245 and 270 hp, while a possible Z5 M could produce as much as 425 hp thanks to the new M3/M4’s twin-turbo straight-six. Transmissions will include an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual. All told, BMW has a Z5 target weight of 3,300 lbs. More details are expected in the next few months.
