The new BMW Z4 is due in 2018, the final auto will not look exactly like this one in the photos, but it will be very similar.
BMW debuted the Concept Z4 Roadster at its Monterey Car Week press conference on Thursday and says the car's appearance on the Pebble Beach Concept Lawn on Sunday will be its only North American public showing.
Disappointingly, nothing is spoken of the drivetrain and whether the next Z4 will share any oily bits with the forthcoming Toyota Supra, which is said to be powered by a hybrid powertrain and auto-only transmission.
Residents Urged to Protect Eyes During Solar Eclipse
If the frenzy ahead of Monday's total solar eclipse has you thinking about trying to see it for yourself, you're a little late. Your best bet is to stick with a brand whose glasses are certified by NASA and the American Astronomical Society (AAS ).
BMW confirmed that it is also working on an all-new M8, which will sport even larger air intakes, performance brakes and its own exhaust system that flows through four tailpipes. During the car's development, BMW board members considered renaming it. With the Z4 Girard has taken inspiration from previous BMW design icons and reinterpreted them; "We definitely want to reinvent everything", he says, "We're not doing retro though, we always reinterpret key cues such as the kidney grilles".
There had been speculation that the Z4's successor would be named the Z5, but that will not happen. The driver's seat sports additional wild decorative patterning that we attribute to the conceptual nature of this auto; it is unlikely to reach dealerships.
While only the outline of the auto is visible in the image, Autocar says it appears to have a "pair of buttresses" located behind the seats, although the production version is expected to feature "a more conventional folding soft top".
BMW has provided a clear glimpse of the look and layout of the new Z4's interior. Considering this is a concept, details could change before production. The Z4 is a squat, open-topped racer. The outline of the vehicle follows a distinct wedge shape, which fills the BMW Concept Z4 with dynamism before it even pulls away.
Diego Costa determined to rejoin Atletico
Atletico have no rush, they can't even register Costa until January, so things could get much nastier as far as they're concerned. We signed Sandro, we know about the development of Dominic Calvert-Lewin , but we need another one who can play the No.9 role.
We can expect the all-new BMW Z4 to come with engines ranging from 2.0-litre turbo-petrol inline-4 to 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-6. Above the instrument cluster, the Head-Up Display presents the key driving information within the driver's direct field of view.
The new design is a long departure from the somewhat uninspiring design of the outgoing Z4 whichhas been in production since 2009. But reports indicate that a manual will be offered, along with new four- and six-cylinder engines.
First up is an all-new convertible two-door called the Z4, representing the brand's 21 century take on a traditional roadster.
