We've long known that BMW is working on the next-generation Z4 thanks to numerous spy shots as well as a concept model. What we don't know is when the car is set to make its world. Recently however, the Bavarian automaker announced that a production vehicle will be making its debut at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance – and it is the all-new Z4.
For the time being, BMW has not released any details regarding the model that will debut. In fact, they did not even mention what vehicle they will debut save for it being a 'production model'. Instead, they have only released a teaser photo showing the vehicle's camouflaged front grill. The new kidney grill design is something that we've seen before on numerous spy shots and official teaser photos of Z4 prototypes.
Last year, BMW also debuted the Z4 Concept at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. That said, it is no surprise that the automaker has decided to reveal the roadster at the same event this year. Details regarding the Z4 are still scare at the moment. What we do know is that the upcoming roadster will get a powerful inline-six engine which will be used in the M40i variant. It will also come with a soft-top rather than a folding metal roof. Design wise, it seems to have remained faithful to the concept.
The BMW Z4 is set to make its world premiere on August 23 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It will be joined by the M850i Coupe and the M8 Gran Coupe, both of which will make be making their North American Debut.
With the Z4 soon to shed its camo, it is likely its Japanese cousin, the Toyota Supra, will also be revealed soon.
