BMW and Toyota have confirmed a joint sports car platform. The two auto majors had inked a deal to share technology and various components in 2012. However the enthusiast section has been eagerly awaiting this news.
The available information is limited, although BMW development boss Dr. Herbert Diess conveyed they have agreed on a joint architecture for a sports car to Allgemeine Zeitung (German newspaper). The important part is there will be two different cars authentic to the brands.
This also indicates the companies have jointly decided on one particular model from the many proposals under consideration.
Although there are no confirmations on the models that will exit the production ramp, rumours about either a BMW Z4 successor or a Lexus LFA successor are abound.
