The car was actually designed by Dutchman Harm Lagaay, who later became head of the Porsche design department. Interesting to see that it never got a type approval in the USA, which may have contributed to its early demise after far less than 10000 were produced. They command high prices now in the second hand market.

Yeah, I'm kind of surprised none of the media pics have the doors open - it was one of the most unique things about the car.

In fact I guess the USA market deny never had anything to do with it's early demise. The Z1 was a just a concept car constructed for testing the multilink suspension that appeared later in the E36 series 3 version, and was never intented to have a go on market. However, it's lightweight construction, and therefore great agility, combined with the Z-link and 325i 170bhp engine and those looks made it such a desirable machine that the market has made some pression on BMW to launch it.

It was a very high priced machine at 55.000, and therefore only a short number of cars were put into market to satisfy those BMW clients who wished for something special and limited.


I think I'm not writting any mistake. But if someone has more accurate answers, please share them with us.

I think that is the official part of the story. I can't believe that if they would have been able to sell more they also would have stopped production. However, with such cars it's always the first batch that meets with great demand but maintaining sales over a longer period of time is problematic.
