This older post from SCOTT hints that we could see a three roadster lineup, with a new RWD entry squeezing in between the FWD Z2 and RWD Z4.

To allow this, those two could be renamed Z1 and Z5 respectively, making room for a Z3. It seems a little far fetched, but it makes some sense.
I didn't realize that BMW was considering two roadsters to slot in below the Z4 -- I remembered the Scott post that you linked to, but had forgotten some of the details. That being the case, your scenario makes complete sense...

...except for the naming convention, which is a conversation for another time
