Insiders at BMW claim that the company will soon roll out the concept Z5 roadster to the public, which will serve as a prototype for future production model. Germans will be responsible for the exterior, interior, gasoline engines and carbon fiber body parts. Toyota will share their experience with hybrid propulsion system.
