The Z1 is a limited production BMW that was a two-seater with really cool doors that actually electrically lower into the side panel, not a GM car. The front end is similar to the M1/850i type. You were thinking of the ZR1 perhaps?<p>Jim Surdick<br>'92 Laguna Green 850i 6spd<br>BMWCCA#148638<p><i><br></i>

Jim, You are right as usual. the doors are cool, but that is about it IMHO.<p><i>: The Z1 is a limited production BMW that was a two-seater with really cool doors that actually electrically lower into the side panel, not a GM car.

<br>To quote the site at the link below:<p><br>"What is a Z1?<p>"The BMW Z1 is a two-seat soft top roadster. It uses the engine and transmission from the E30 325 mounted in a specially designed base<br>frame or chassis, which is made from galvanised steel. The sports body, which is made from various types of composite resin panels, is<br>fixed onto the base frame. The front suspension is re-worked 325 components, with a wider track. The rear suspension is the specially<br>designed 'Z axle'. The most distinctive features of the body are the electrically powered doors, which in the open position drop down into<br>the side sills, this creating the ultimate 'open car' when the soft top is lowered underneath its' flat cover."<p><br><br><br><img src=http://www.drawmer.demon.co.uk/bmwz1.jpg><br>

<br>The "Z" in "Z1" comes from "Zukunft" -- the German word for "future". It is the Z1 that has set the standard for BMW naming its current roadsters "Z-something", i.e. the Z3 and Z8. I believe there was a Z12 or Z13 concept car (small, closed car), and of course the Z9 concept car BMW showed in Frankfurt, and later also in New York...<p>Lorenz<br>
