2016 BMW Z4
Price: Starting at $49,700
When the BMW Z4 debuted in 2003 buyers could choose between inline 6-cylinder engines, but BMW has turned to turbocharged engines, including the TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter 4-cylinder unit that powers the Z4 sDrive28i. The 2.0-liter has 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque delivered through either a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic transmission. A long hood, low beltline, long wheelbase and short rear deck combine to create the low-slung profile of BMW’s 2-seat Z4 roadster. Its power-retractable hardtop can be lowered at cruising speeds up to 25 mph, and stows in a compact package in the trunk.
