Fully uncovered pic of the new Z4 from a decently scanned catalogue

Goddamn, this car is looking very exotic. This is my new favorite BMW!!

And a version with the odd perspective of the original scan fixed (by Dazzler)

Ya, I think its becaseu of the reflectors. The same as the 6 series has too. Im gonna just do the same as the X6 guys are doing and black it out totally in the rear so there are no reflectors...

No, if it was an X6, it would come to about nipple level...

IMHO, the X6 is the ugliest, most senseless BMW in history, and claustrophobic on the inside. Hope they sell lots.

I thought it was going to be a disaster like the E85 z4 but it looks like a great follow-up to the E92 M3 and another homerun for BMW.

i just hope they don't price this thing too high, i'd like bmw to actually sell this little car and make some money so they keep making cars like this

While the details appear correct, the pic is severely distorted (look at that camber). This resembles that autobild/huckfeldt illustrations as all BMW brochures never look this 'chopped. Could it be the result of a bad scan.

The page/catalog is just bent a little... look in the lower left hand, it's lifted off the table surface that's why the image is distorted. I'm guessing this is a cellphone or digicam pic of an official marketing catalog or material.

This car is a real stunner so far in the front pic we saw yesterday and this rear pic!! And BMW picked an awesome color to use launch its marketing with.

If they price this right this could definitely be my next car. It's time I get back into a roadster

This car looks great! Just like I had hoped it would. I liked the current Z4 since I first saw it but this just takes it to another level completely. Very nice!

It ties in with the first real photo circulating so I think this is the real car.

amazing...I see a lot of 6 in there! Which is a good thing because the back of the 6 looks gorgeous in my opinion.

I dont know what to say. The design makes sense. It has great lines, consistency, nice stance, good mix of aggression/class...yet I dont feel blown away. The word bland or boring comes to mind. I need to see official pics...maybe its cos I'm tired lol.
