2019 BMW Z4 production-spec model to closely resemble the concept
The all-new BMW Z4 sportscar is being readied for a 2019 launch. The German car manufacturer has already released teasers of the all-new Z4 in the form of camouflaged images. It is known that the new-gen BMW Z4 will be officially unveiled at Pebble Beach in August followed by its public showcase at the Paris Motor Show scheduled to take place in October this year. If you can't wait for that long to get a first glimpse, here's how the production-spec 2019 BMW Z4 could look like.
The production of the all-new BMW Z4 will have a toned down design as compared to the bold looking concept
The patent drawings that have surfaced on the internet confirm that BMW is not deviating away from the fourth-generation Z4 concept car showcased at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The car boasts a more muscular silhouette with strong character lines running along the length into the haunch over the wheel arches. The front is aggressive with lowered but wider kidney grills and swept back headlamps. The rear hosts the L-shaped LED tail lights along with a boot lid spoiler, all sleek and streamlined still being in tune with the car's overall design philosophy.
The fourth-gen BMW Z4 will be manufactured at Magna Steyr's facility in Graz, Austria. This same facility also manufactures Jaguar I-Pace and E-Pace, Mercedes and BMW
While there are no images of the cabin, referring to that in concept, the cabin has a blacked-out driver-centric cockpit in contrast to the orange colour. The digital displays are horizontal and parallel to each other. There is also a heads-up display. The cabin exudes minimalism whilst making use of bold and strong colour schemes.
The top-spec Z4 will be an extremely powerful six-cylinder engine, states BMW
We can expect the all-new BMW Z4 to come with engines ranging from 2.0-litre turbo-petrol inline-4 to 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-6. It might be safe to assume each motor to have different state of tune, accompanied by an M Performance version in the future. A 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic is likely to be offered to drive the rear wheels.
It is still not clear if the new-gen BMW Z4 will be manufactured alongside the new Toyota Supra, considering both are based on the same platform
