Looks a bit like a Fiat 124 in those pics, but hopefully will look better in reality.

if it really "does" looks like the concept, I think we are really moving into the future.

Man. BMW is really confused with their kidney grill. Most new models connect, but this doesn't. The x2, and 8 are upside down. the x5 and x7 are hideous. IMO the upcoming 8 series and x3 looks the best.

Underwhelming yet promising from the TM photos.

my opinion same, also could be said for headlights connecting to kidneys, and this upwards headlights on z4, its like it isnt bmw, im used to horizontal lights which visually looks wider, but looks.. what?


Z is for Zukunft, Future, but is this really future? if it is, im gonna stay in present for quite a while

and ehat about ext.mirrors, i reallyyyyy like ines on 7er and 5er, and i get that X familiy has to have those for practical reason, but why doesnt z4 gets 7er's mirrors instead of these

Headlights, lower door curve and tail lights look very similar to AMG GT. A little too similar.

Don't worry, what's inside the engine compartment will look completely different. Of course, the price tags will also be completely divergent.

But anyway, it looks pretty much what one might have expected based on the concept and what usually takes place on the way to production. I think it'll be a great little roadster that will have plenty of appeal to its target audience. Maybe it'll reverse the current consumer trends away from sports cars and someday, somehow an S58-powered M model will be born.

Let's hope so because this thing is very bland compared to the exciting concept.

Maybe the MSport trim will make it something a little more special.

Sadly they haven’t been able to keep from the concept the hood line where it should be.

Strange since on all new G series cars (including the new 8 series) they have been able to place it right.
