I don't know anything about the engine issue but it seems to me that if Rahal was done with ALMS after this year and the Z4 will not be approved for ACO racing, both of which you suggest, why are they even talking about it?
The homologation rules will not be changed for BMW. In fact BMW are reason why the current homologation rules exist in ALMS. ACO/IMSA would have to rewrite the rules book. Unless BMW decides to build/sell a Z4 with the S65, it will not be coming to Le Mans.
There was some talk of the Z4 GT3 coming to Grand-Am, but I haven't read anything lately about it.
