The 2019 BMW Z4 has leaked ahead of an anticipated debut on August 23rd at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The leaked images, posted to Instagram by a China-based user, show off the front, side and rear of the new Z4. The German sports car will take on a bit of a Fiat inspired look out front, with headlights that are vaguely reminiscent of the Fiat 124’s. The side incorporates a large side blade element painted in a contrasting black color, which matches other gloss black painted parts including the front grille, wheels, intake vents and exhaust tips. The rear also features an integrated ducktail-style lip spoiler and thin, horizontal taillights similar to those seen on other new BMWs, like the 8 Series, for example.

Back in June, BMW provided us with some official details on the range-topping Z4 M40i. The vehicle will feature BMW’s turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six engine, which will be making at least 355 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque. Power will be sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission supplied by ZF. The chassis, which will be shared with the highly anticipated A90 Toyota Supra, promises to be extremely stiff and rigid, helping to provide improved handling performance over the outgoing Z4 without sacrificing ride quality.

We won’t have to wait long to get all the official info on the new BMW Z4, so stay tuned for more details on the German convertible as they become available later this month.
