2011 BMW Z4 Summary

The BMW Z4 reminds us of a more intimate and engaging version of the 6 Series cabrio. The folding hardtop offers the best of coupe and roadster forms with few of the drawbacks of either. The sDrive35is model carries a hefty premium, but it is the most powerful and the best performer. We recommend the base Z4 sDrive30i with its lively engine, especially with the manual gearbox; order ours without the distracting iDrive. We think the Z4 is the best sports car in this class, excepting the Porsche Boxster.
