In the case of Toyota, all is simple enough – the Japanese are going to create a successor to the iconic Supra model, as for the BMW, the Company’s plans are far more ambitious. The Bavarian manufacturer intends to present a new sports coupe under the name of the Z5, and is confident that the car will be a worthy rival of the Porsche sports car. Developing a novelty in collaboration, BMW and Toyota have thought about a difference between the versions. If the Japanese will get a hardtop version, the Bavarian will get a model with a removable soft top, as in 2-Series.
