New BMW Z4: the design

At Pebble Beach BMW has revealed the production version of the new-generation Z4 roadster. We report the complete gallery of photos and sketches from the design process.


The upcoming new generation Z4 was revealed at the Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance, the same venue where BMW revealed the Concept Z4 last year.

Compared to the concept car, the production Z4 has maintained the same general design: the boldly sculpted flanks now feature a different, more production-friendly lower cutline and rising character line.

The rear end has been modified with different tail lights, that have lost their original horizontal, wraparound effect.

From the official Press Release:

Vertically aligned headlights, the BMW kidney grille sporting a mesh design, the hood stretching sports car-like over the wheels, large air breathers on the front wheel arches and the distinctive spoiler integrated into the rear lid all contribute towards the characteristic look of the new BMW Z4.

The design of the interior also places the focus on the puristic sportiness of the new BMW Z4. The driver- oriented cockpit styling is underscored by dynamic forward-oriented lines.
