36: BMW Z4
The Z4 is a pretty unique car in the BMW product line and has been around for two decades now. In its current form, the Z4 is a tad bit aged but the car still has some unique aspects to it. For starters, there aren’t a lot of basic two-door roadsters that you can get your hands on anymore. Making the Z4 kind of the last of the Mohicans, in contrast, the Z4 is also quite dated when you compare it to the competition. The Z4 is lacking in the modern performance that a lot of the other BMWs have, which is why it is better off to avoid this sports car. For the high price, there are comparable sports cars that offer a better intrinsic value.
That’s not to say that the Z4 is a bad car all-around, but for what you are paying, the value just isn’t there. BMW has spent quite a bit of effort in redefining its passenger sedans but the Z4 has fallen by the wayside. This is after all a BMW and not a Miata, and you’d expect the quality to be a little bit better. You can’t go wrong with BMW engineering, but we were hoping that the Z4 would bring a little bit more to the table. The Luxury-minded roadsters are a thing of the past and the Z4 has some stiff competition for the little bit of market share that’s left. With the few different choices that you have the Z4 is just one worth avoiding.
