Wow! It looks so much better in those photos than the press imagery suggests. In sideview, it feels like the driving position is a little more central compared to the cab rear feel of the e85 & e89. Kinda curious to see how a functioning soft top will affect the rear deck too..

Really hope the production car retains as much of the concept as it possibly can, exciting stuff!

I really like it, the production model is supposed to be 80% of this design (Evo) and if it's got that front end I can see it being my next car :driving:

Looks like a true exotic car at an entry sports car price. Hopefully the production car retains the concept car looks! Can't wait to see it on Sunday at Pebble Beach :D

Well I think this one is going to sell like hot cakes! Doesnt look loke a car that should have a 2.0l engine in it or anything south of 400bhp. Which obviously is a good thing.

I like this, although I think the production version will be toned down a bit,this is rather nice.
I hope the plans for a 425bhp ,3.0 twin turbo M model goes ahead ,as the range needs a halo model,imo. :D

The bit I'm not sure about is the rear spoiler?

Yeah,I really like the front-end and side profile.
The bonnets vents/cut outs look good too.
A serious contender for a future buy :)

According to press info,the frozen orange paint and some of the more extreme design touches,like narrow wing mirrors,won't make final production.

Hope they do launch a proper M car worthy of the badge and call it Z4M.
The E85/6 Z4M is off most peoples radar I think, some thinking it's just the usual stuck on M badge fake.
When I bought mine I was considering E46 M3 vert but really wanted a lighter 2 seater then someone I worked with had a Z4M which I hadn't even considered till then :oops: . So glad I bumped into him :D

It looks far too large from the images so another grand tourer than a nimble sports car which would be a great shame. Would like to see it in silver but it looks a little too fugly in places. It might look better in the metal.

Looks great. Very curious about the price point this will be released in. A lot of previous press has suggested they will be raising the entry level price quite significantly over the previous model. It looks a lot more premium than any BMW at the old E89's price point. I've seen one more recent price suggestion at a £35K starting point, which seems unrealistic.

The concept is a bit honda civic, too many angles and 'transformer vibe'
but... if only they were to make a coupe :fuelfire:
