The next gen BMW Z4 has been caught wearing black and white paisley instead of body armor, and much of the current car's drama definitely looks to have been toned down. The car hasn't been stripped of visual interest, but the angles-meeting-angles has been nixed for what looks like more gentle curves, swells, and strakes. The top is down in all of the shots, so we can't say anything more about the potential hardtop option, because it looks like the current car's cloth roof tucked in back. If not revolution, it looks to be a pretty serious evolution. Click the link to get more spy shots of the next Z4 topless. Thanks for the tip, Alex!

      This is all hunky dory until we see the curb weight.

      I wouldn't be suprised to see this Bavarian monster weigh 3500 lbs.

      Looking pretty good at this pint... but I felt the old car was pretty flimsy in a lot of ways. Our family friends had one and traded it in for a SLK 280 and said they'll never go back. While I havent driven the SLK, the Z4 was sort of like a Miata: felt like it was made out of styrofoam... but I'm used to bigger cars in general, sople people love it :)

        No, just around the block... but maybe you're right. It was just the impression I got from it, and the owners said the SLK has a better ride and feels more rigid... this again could be because of the excessive spring rate and runflat tires (excessive rattling and slightly unsettled)... the runflats I don't understand at all, we have 40-60mph speed limits everywhere.

        Styrofoam?? Have you ever driven a Z4 in anger? If anything, the suspension and chassis tuning is too stiff for the runflats that bmw insists we all need. Chassis rigidity is not one of the cars faults.

      happy to see some flare added to the car. like how it's coming out.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed. The body lines are definitely drawing from the design concept, which can only be a good thing.

      I think I may throw up...just what the world needed; a mini 6 Series. It still looks like the designer fell asleep once he got past the rear quarter of the car. That hideous line across the trunk that practically makes a right angle with the ground is such a turn off.

      Kind of looks like the Sharpie Lambo from Miami. Anyone notice the little side window just to the rear of the doors. Should make for a nice "Top Up" look.

      Wow, that is some sweet camo tape
      • 6 Years Ago
      Did anyone notice the dual exhaust? I hope it has a V8 and in another shot looks like there is a intercooler. Sweet!

      Hard to tell exactly what the angles/cuts will look like. It does seem more evolutionary than revolutionary, which might be okay, given what the last revolution turned it into.

      I'm scared of 6 Series style tail-lights, which I think are heinous.

        So can we all agree then that Chris Bangle is the worst thing to happen to BMW in a long time?
        • 6 Years Ago
        The 6 Series in general is heinous, but I strongly agree with you. It shocks me that the company that brought us the 2002 can make such ugly cars that still sell. Lucky for BMW their cars are great performers.

      Did anyone else notice the Ford Probe in the background of the last couple of pictures?

      I think the Z4 had an allergic reaction to it.

      i hope they deleted that godawful, heinous side badge on this z4.
