BMW Z4 Concept: This Driver-focused Roadster Is Aggressive
BMW has shown off its Z4 concept ahead of its reveal at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on August 17. A new preview image released on social media hints that the open-top concept will boast a long bonnet and a pair of rear buttresses. The concept car's sleek design looks similar to that of the BMW Gina concept of 2008.
The shape of the car will influence the design of the upcoming production BMWZ4, due in 2019. However, the car is expected to feature a more conventional folding soft top. The third-generation Z4 is part of what BMW's head of sales and marketing, Ian Robertson, claims Z4 as the most comprehensive new model push, Autocar Reported.
Codenamed G29, the new convertible car from BMW is being developed in a joint engineering program between BMW and Toyota, which will sell a coupé version as the Supra. The two cars that have been seen testing in development form on public roads for several months will get produced alongside each other at Magna in Austria, according to the CNET.
BMW Z4 has some classic elements in it. There is a short rear deck, long hood, compact size and short overhangs. However, car's massive air intakes and nostrils hint that this is a modern, real-deal sports car.
BMW is said to keep the Z4 name secure for its future model, instead of using Z5 as previously rumored. This is because Z5 does not fit with its naming structure that uses even numbers for performance model cars. This fact is backed up by internal correspondence relating to the G29 project, which refers to the car as Z4.
The production BMW Z4 will appear three months after the new 8 Series, which is due in 2018 and is previewed by the Concept 8 Series. The 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance kicks off on 16 August and lasts until 20 August.
