Next-generation BMW Z4 leaks ahead of debut

At the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, BMW is set to debut their highly anticipated roadster, the Z4. The Bavarian automaker has already set a reveal date, August 23, on which the new Z4 will drop its camouflage and officially make its world premiere. However, it seems as though someone was too eager to show Z4 to the world way before anyone should. 

Someone on Instagram, who goes by the username @liucunyi, has posted two photos of the all-new Z4 sans camouflage. While the photos only show the vehicle’s front, rear, and side, we do get an idea as to what the 2019 Z4 looks like. Furthermore, the badging also indicates that this model is likely the range-topping M40i.  Compared to the Z4 Concept, the production model Z4 has a more toned down styling. That said, there are still some differences.

Going into details, the 2019 Z4’s front fascia features a less aggressive bumper and larger headlights compared to those on the concept. Unsurprisingly, it also now uses regular sized mirrors. That said, it does somewhat look like the Miata-based Fiat 124 albeit with large kidney grills fitted. Some other notable things on this specific Z4 would be the fully blacked out grill and bumper vents. 

As for the side, we can see that it features a front fender grill similar to its yet-to-be-revealed Japanese sibling, the Supra. It is also fitted with glossy black M-wheels which hide large brakes. At the rear, it continues to take on the Z4 concept’s design with slim LED taillights and rear bumper vents. A glimpse of the interior shows that it has white leather seats and trim. 

Apart from these photos, no other details of the new Z4 were provided. It is uncertain whether the 3.0-liter engine powering other M40i models will be fitted over into the Z4. Expect full details and more photos of the 2019 Z4 to be released at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
