Spy Photos: 2010 BMW Z4 Spotted!

Follow Marty

BMW’s next-generation Z4 sports car has been photographed quite often in various stages of its development. These latest shots show a test car caught in the streets of Munich.

The Z4 will replace the current model that has been on the market since 2003, and it will be about the same size. The most significant feature on the new car is that BMW will exchange the canvas top for a retractable steel roof, like that on the Mercedes SLK.

The new Z4 is expected to offer a choice of more powerful engines. Riding on the latest 3-Series chassis, it may use the same range of four- and six-cylinder engines, and for the first time there is talk of additional diesel engines, too. The top of the line version will be the Z4 M.

While the current Z4 is being built in BMW's plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, the new Z4 will be built in Regensburg, Germany, with production starting in late 2009.

The photos show a computer rendering of how the new Z4 could look without disguise, and three of our latest prototype shots.--Hans G. Lehmann / Hidden Image

  1. Have an informal competition with some of my co-workers each week (in the past) using your trivia questions. Really miss it. Will you start trivia again??

  3. The best thing about it is that BMW will exchange the canvas top for a retractable steel roof! I own Z4 2007 (The Coupe) and I am quite happy with it, but I wouldn't mind to change it once the new Z4 available :)
