1988 BMW Z1

BMW has started to manufacturate roadsters again in 1999. This nice Z1 is the first open two-seater since the gorgeous 1956 BMW 507.

The Z1 it’s only the first of the new 90’s saga. It’s not very well known (only 8000 examples were built) but it’s the father of Z3, Z4 or Z8.  I wonder if the Z name came from the multi-link rear suspension called “Z Axle“.

Look at the doors! They retract vertically down into the car’s body instead of swinging outward or upward.
