Although official information has not yet been released, rumors are that the next-generation Z4 roadster will be renamed the Z5 and will be jointly developed by BMW and Toyota.

The automakers will reportedly cooperate on building a new joint platform that will underpin both the next iteration of the Z4 as well as the successor to the Toyota Supra.

Production is said to be scheduled for 2018 in Austria. An official release date has not yet been announced.
