2019 BMW Z4 With Production Lights Stays Close To The Concept

BMW is putting the final touches to the new Z4, including its production lights which give us a much clear look on what the new Bavarian roadster will look like.

With the addition of the production head and taillights, we’re happy to report that the new BMW Z4 will remain close to the concept’s design, something that sadly isn’t always the case.

Codenamed the G29, the new generation of the Z4 rides on a new platform that’s also shared with the much anticipated Toyota Supra. The platform has been engineered to support electrified powertrains as well as all-wheel drive systems but the Z4 will also come in more classic flavors.

Entry-level Z4 sDrive20i models will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit paired to a manual six-speed gearbox, reportedly delivering a solid 194hp and 236lb-ft of torque (320Nm). A more powerful version of the same engine will also be offered in the sDrive30i models. A six-cylinder B58 engine will find its way in the M40i version, which will be the range-topper until BMW decides to give us a proper Z4 M once again.

BMW is set to put the new Z4 into production in November 2018, with the more powerful iterations to show up on a later date.

      And then you put your glasses back on and took another look…joking, joking…design is very subjective, just couldn’t resist. lol.

  • GobbleUp

    Boring just like the rest of the bloated lineup for the past decade.

      Just saw the new 5-series on the road yesterday. What the hell happened to that car? Its as big as any prior 7-series and about as exciting as a Buick.

    that’s too bad

    Sadly the hard top is gone

      I hear you but modern soft tops are so good these days.

      • THEVUVUZELANIST

        For me its more about chassis stiffness… And it usually kills the lines of the car. Z4M Coupe, to me, is a much better looking car than the soft top..

          I’d be surprised if those folding metal roofs offered much more chassis stiffness. They don’t really bolt in place. Plus they raise the center of gravity.

    oh good the lights are going to be close to the concept….because that is the most important part to keep the same.

    • SteersUright

      hahahaha…i appreciate the sarcasm 🙂

  • U8INIT

    It would be helpful; when it’s a post like this, to u have a pic of the concept….

    I love the taillights already – I can’t wait to see this sans-camo!

  • SteersUright

    Not a single curve or “muscle” to any of the design. Im sure it’ll be pleasant enough, in a very boring modern BMW way. Sports cars are emotional, impulse purchases, shouldn’t the design be more emotional then too?

    There’s your new Supra lol….

      Bot alert.

    It’s going to be heavy isn’t it? If so, I’ll save my questions and complaints for a later time.

    Looking at this , it looks like they have an ugly cut line separating the grille from the hood. That is awful. The concept is much cooler for eliminating that ugly hood cut line. Please say it isn’t so.

  • gordono

    Also, I do wish the folding hard top had been kept.
