The last BMW Z4 roadster built on U.S soil(at least for now) has rolled off the production line last week. As we announced several times before, the new generation Z4 production will move from Spartanburg factory in South Carolina to Regensburg, Germany.
There were a little more than 9,300 Z4s built this year at Spartanburg and over the seven years production and the Z4 production will be replaced by the new X3, due to launch in 2010.
The annual Z4 Homecoming held in Upstate, SC, will showcase the last Z4 that comes out of the production line. More than 600 car owners were registered for the 12th Z Homecoming, including Z3 owners and M models.
We are already excited about the new 2009 BMW Z4 and from what we have seen, heard or learned, the new Z4 roadster will be very impressive, it will make the Z4 models stand out and set new standards for its competitors. With the production being moved to Regensburg, BMW is looking to tap into the European market even more and compete with other popular roadsters there.
The new BMW Z4 will be unveiled in November at the L.A Auto Show and go on sale after the Detroit show in 2009.
