More photos of the upcoming BMW Z4 roadster have leaked out prior to the car’s reveal. The new shots, which look to be official images, give us our best look at at the next Z4.
Since other shots have leaked in the past, including the car’s design patent, it’s quite easy to confirm the above car is indeed the Z4. As expected, the car appears to have significant design influence from the new 8 Series and is extremely close to the Z4 Concept that BMW showcased a year ago. Minor changes, such as more production-ready exterior mirrors, are visible changes from the earlier concept.
The new Z4 is expected to be powered by your choice of BMW’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder or 3.0-liter inline-six. That power will likely flow through an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual gearbox. Both powertrains and other components will be shared with the upcoming Toyota Supra, which has been jointly developed alongside the Z4.
BMW is expected to formally reveal the all-new Z4 later this month at the Pebble Beach Concours d’elegance event.
