The E36/7/8 BMW Z3 is the second generation of the BMW Z range of two-seater sports cars, produced from 1995 to 2002. The body styles of the range are:
- 2-door roadster (E36/7 model code)
- 2-door coupé (E36/8 model code)
The E36/7 was based on the E36 3 Series platform, while using the rear semi-trailing arm design of the older E30 3 Series. It is the first BMW Z Series car to be mass-produced.
Z3M models were released in 1998 in roadster and coupé body styles. It is powered by the S50, S52, or S54 straight-six engine depending on country and model year, and comes with a 5-speed manual transmission.
Production ended on June 28, 2002, with the Z3 line replaced by the Z4.
