This Is What The Production 2019 BMW Z4 Will Look Like


Patent images reveal the design of the BMW Z4 before the big reveal.

After showing off the stunning concept last year, the production version of the all-new 2019 BMW Z4 will be shown at Pebble Beach in August before making its public debut at the Paris Auto Show in October, so there’s not long to wait. While BMW's teaser campaign for the Z4 is already underway showing camouflaged prototypes, Dutch website Autoweek has discovered a series of design patent images that finally show us what the final production Z4 will look like.

Unsurprisingly, the road-going model looks like last year’s concept, though the design has been toned down somewhat. It doesn’t look as sharp as the concept, but we’re hoping the production model will look better in the metal. The front-end is dominated by a wide kidney grille positioned low on the nose, and it also features stacked headlights. Like the concept, the Z4 retains the look of a classic sports car with a long hood and short rear deck. The intakes in the front fascia are slightly smaller than the concept, but still give the sports car an aggressive appearance. At the profile, the concept’s large side air scoop behind the front wheel has been retained and there’s now a fabric roof to save extra weight.

Auto manufacturer Magna Steyr recently confirmed Z4 production will take place at its factory in Graz, Austria, before the end of this year. As for powertrains, BMW recently confirmed there will be a range-topping Z4 M40i with an “extremely powerful” six-cylinder engine. Reports suggest it will come in two flavors: a standard 335-horsepower trim and a 385-hp Competition model. There will also likely be a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 offered in two variants generating 190 and 250 horsepower. In BMW’s words, the new Z4 will be a “purebred roadster”. We can’t wait to find out if it lives up to its potental this summer.
