BMW and Toyota’s partnership may easily be one of the most significant collaborations of the past decade‚ it did result in the production of the current-generation Z4 and Supra, after all. And whether you’re a fan of the entire alliance or not, it appears that this partnership will be here to stay.
According to a Reuters report, BMW will be looking to strengthen its ties with the Japanese carmaker and wants the partnership to go beyond 2025. “In the next decades, we would do well to strengthen bonds,” said BMW chief executive officer Oliver Zipse.
The report also mentions that BMW is aiming to trim its model lineup in order to reduce costs. “Coupés, convertibles, and roadsters, we will see what will be left,” Zipse said.
We know we won’t be getting any more Supras or Z4s from this partnership even if it were to extend to the latter half of the decade, but we’re still hoping BMW and Toyota would surprise us in the years to come. Who knows, maybe the two would build a new sports car...
Anyway, what do you think? What more would you like to see come out of this partnership?
