BMW just teased us with a photo of the upcoming Z4 Concept. Due to be unveiled at Pebble Beach on Thursday, August 17th, the new roadster continues the tradition of BMW open-tops, but with a new fresh design.

The next-gen BMW Z4 will be built on a sports car chassis co-designed by both BMW and Toyota. It will be a mechanical sibling to the upcoming Toyota Supra, which excites many fans. What’s known for sure so far is that it will be rear-wheel drive as-standard, will come in four-cylinder and six-cylinder variants and will regain its soft-top roof, rather than the folding hard-top of the current car. It will also be lighter, faster and sharper than the car it replaces.

Under the hood, we’ll have a range of 2-liter 4-cylinder engines and 3-liter straight six ones. The entry-level model will most likely be the sDrive20i with a near-200 HP engine under the hood. The sDrive30i will come with 252 PS while in the 3-liter straight six we’ll have the B58 mill tuned to make probably 340 HP in a likely M Performance version of the Z4.

The teaser image shows a unique design of the kidney grille, while the double headlights are sitting upwards compared to current models. The vents in the front bumper are also quite large, giving the front bumper an aggressive look. The side view shows two creases running from the rear to front, with muscular fenders in the rear. Based on what we see today, the new Z4 Roadster will be quite a looker.

    The angel eyes/corona rings don’t looked finished… It like half a corona with a midget corona stacked on top of it. Imo

      i loved z4 for coupe version

      • fgclolz says:

        I’m hoping for a coupe version, but since this is a joint venture between BMW and Toyota and they don’t want the same cannibalization that took place between the FRS/86 and BRZ, the Bimmer would most likely remain soft top only and the Supra will be the coupe version. Shame really coz I’d like to drive one with a stick, and the Supra has been reported to be auto-only… plus the concept styling has left a bad taste in my mouth.

      4 Series Cabriolet.

    The angel eyes bear some semblance to a … flounder.

      And the grille looks like a KIA with the shape and those diamonds… which part of this car is supposed to look like a BMW? It looks like a concept for a KIA Stinger roadster. After the Z8, Z3, and Z4 this is a disappointment.

        Come on man, look at how aggressive it looks. There’s no inch that resembles KIA, wait till tomorrow when we’ll see the entire car. Horatiu said he already saw it and it’s gorgeous. It’s also a totally different design to what we’re used to while remaining the classic proportions of BMW roadsters.

      Speedy flounder.

    The corona layout reminds me of a design concept I did a few years ago… (not my finest hour.)

    Wow!!! This is exciting…I hope they keep it exactly the same.. I do think the mirrors will be slightly bigger, but those curves, my gosh it looks naughty. I think the Supra is gonna be awesome too. Hope they sound good and have proper power and handling too.

    • Terry Cowan says:

      The fact that BMW still do roadsters, nearly a century later, and that it allows the Supra to return as well, are only good news.

    GORGEOUS!!! <3
