The new Z4 Concept Car in Monterey

Post by Valor1 » Mon Aug 21, 2017 6:35 pm

Another great year in Monterey capped off with the unveiling of the new Z4. Sandwiched between a the new Pagani roadster and Barchetta on one side and the new Ford GT and Le Mans winning GT40, the BMW looked quite stunning.

Looks OK-ish, but as our American cousins would say "don't it got no roof"?

Off to Toyota for me! :lol:
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey & 108Ms. Cruise, Storage and pdc. 325ti Sport as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.

The person from BMW with whom I spoke didn't seem to know very much about the car, but he stated it was the only one.

I prefer the shark nose of the other BMW Concept featured in Monterey, this time at the Quail event on Friday, August 18, 2017, was the 8 Series Concept, and think that would have made this Z4 concept car more aggressive and sleek looking.

I think there already is a topic about the z4 concept at pebble beach?
Like this one (among others.... but this is I think the 'main topic'):
viewtopic.php?f=52&t=99472

And why is this posted in the e89 section?!? :headbang: :roll:

Looks good, but how much will survive to production?

Stick a set of 19 inch wheels on it, lose the bonnet vents, tone down the front and rear treatment (surely that pronounced shark's nose can't meet pedestrian safety regs?), lose the concept wing mirrors for 'sensible' items, put a proper windscreen on it (less rake and a proper reinforced frame) and take off the speedster humps (how does the hood operate with those in place?) and you've probably got close to what it will look like when launched....

Probably be a bit underwhelmed by then.

A sharp dose of reallity lol. We can all hope it looks like the concept on release but it is extremely unlikely. Reminds me of the Toyota FT1 concept
