The new Z4 ditches the previous model's power folding hardtop for a lighter, simpler power soft top.

The First Edition Z4 also comes with a bevy of performance upgrades, including bigger brakes and an electronic differential.

This may be the first BMW Z to be at home on a track since the Z4 M of the early 2000s.

The base Z4 30i will arrive at dealers in spring of 2019, with hotter versions like the First Edition coming in the second quarter of the year.
