Renderings of a possible BMW Z4 Coupe, E89 platform, continue to surface on the interwebs. Our sister-magazine BimmerToday and resident graphics artist, McQueen, are giving us an E89 Z4 Coupe based on the design style of the older Z3 Coupe, E36 and E37 models.
BMW has denied the claim of a possible Z4 Coupe many times before, but the same as with previous models, the Z3 or Z4 Coupe, a new variant may still be on the table at a later date.
In 1995, BMW presented the BMW Z3 roadster and a few years later, the BMW Z3 coupé was launched in the marketplace.
BMW introduced an M version of the E85 Z4 in late 2006, both in Roadster and Coupe variant. Despite having many fans and admirers, the sales of the Z Coupe models have always been modest and with the new generation E89 Z4, BMW only offers a roadster.
The Z4 Coupe renderings give us an interesting angle of the car, the front end remains identical to the Z4 Roadster, while most of the changes took place at the rear of the car where the coupe-lines are fitted to the current roadster. One of the car in these renderings also gets the ALPINA treatment, identified by the signature wheels and colors.
In our opinion, a Z Coupe continues to remain at the top of the list of a BMW enthusiast, but the economic climate and long-term strategy at BMW, limits the chances of a seeing a Z4 Coupe in production.
