In general, many test drivers agree that the base model also strikes the best balance of price and performance. Although you can get a more powerful engine in the upper trims like the Z4 sDrive35is, a few critics aren’t convinced that the performance gain is worth the price increase. Cars.com says, “There’s no question this version of the Z4 is a star performer on the street and the track, but that kind of money can buy a Porsche Boxster S, and that fact might give some buyers pause.”

That doesn’t necessarily mean you should cross the Z4 off your list. For a roadster, the Z4 is actually somewhat practical, thanks to great fuel economy and features like its retractable hardtop. The base model also costs less than the Boxster, while free scheduled maintenance also adds value. So from that perspective, the 2012 BMW Z4 remains a smart buy among luxury sports cars.
