Toyota Supra & BMW Z4 Not As Close As We Thought

By  | 

Since Toyota and BMW have revealed that they will be working together on the upcoming Toyota Supra and BMW Z4, everyone assume that the Supra and Z4 will be closer than we think but according to the latest report, that is far from the case.

Although the Toyota Supra’s hardware will be sourced from BMW according to Masayuki Kai, the Supra program assistant chief engineer, the Supra and Z4 development teams severed their ties back in 2014. They added that both teams agreed upon a few hard points and started doing their own things after that.

This is very different from the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ. That also means that Toyota would have no idea what BMW Z4 will be offering and BMW is equally clueless about the Toyota Supra. To really know how much these two models will be sharing, we will have to wait for both these models to be announced.
