No, the actual car is still like 9 months away from launch, minimum. We probably won't see the real thing until December or January, to whet appetites for Spring sales.

Agree. 6 Series tails with the second front end is where it's at.

the outgoing z4m is quicker than a z06 on the track


im guessing the next gen z4's will have the n54 motor. If its the same tune they are putting in the new 7 series with that motor it will have around 330hp as well

My Ride: Is Slower Than Yours
BMW's next-generation Z4 has replaced its heavy black shell with a
thin veneer of its new graphic camouflage. Despite the vomit-inducing
nature of the Z4's new disguise, it's a huge step forward in terms of
assessing the evolution of the roadster's styling. Many of the
polarizing features of the current Z4's design have been toned-down,
for what appears to be a much more elegant look.

Chris Bangle's fussy flame-surfacing seems to have been more or less
extinguished, as the side character lines appear to have a more
logical flow throughout the Z4's surface development. The Z4's twin-
kidney grille takes inspiration from BMW's CS concept, as well as the
new 7-series, while a strong chin spoiler anchors the front fascia
nicely. The rear styling shows that the current Z4's Quasimodo hump
is gone. In its place is a rear deck that resembles the 6-series a
bit--only much more pleasantly resolved.

This prototype is sporting the retractable hard top, although new
reports out of Germany tell us that buyers will also be given the
opportunity to choose a soft-top option.

BMW's radical design revolution hasn't always been aesthetically
successful, at least in the eyes of the BMW faithful. But BMW styling
now seems to be hitting its stride, recapturing some of its former
pleasing proportions. It appears that the steadying hand of BMW
designer Adrian van Hooydonk is getting the beloved Bimmers back where
they need to be.

I took this from the cover of the August edition AutoMotorSport magazine while waiting in the doctors office.
I tried enhancing the crappy phone pic with PS a bit:





I'm guessing that's how it will finally look. Amazing
It will definately feature a steel roof. BMW was surprised with the very positive feedback they got from the E93.
