The BMW Z4 has been phased out sometime middle of last year, however, it is due to be back end of 2018. The latest BMW Z4 Concept is finally going to be revealed this August at Pebble Beach and industry experts are more than thrilled to find out what it is like.

The BMW Z4 Concept is set to be officially introduced to the market at the Pebble Beach Concourse d'Elegance from August 16 to 20. This is the perfect opportunity to preview the similarities and difference of the third generation Z4.

The upcoming Z4 has for some time been under the codename "G29," which is a joint effort between Toyota and BMW. Toyota is also expected to have its own version as it brings to life the Supra. The prototypes of both Supra and Z4 have since been spied several times, however, not much can be derived from it because of its heavy camouflage.

At least the latest spy shots have given experts and onlookers more specific details on some of its parts. The recent spy shots reveal the roadster featuring a soft top. It is also expected to produce 195-horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. The Z4 Concept is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox that is good news to purist fans.

The latest BMW Z4 is reported to be on sale by November 2018. It will come three months after the 8 Series. There are rumors stating that the codename G29 may either be called the Z4 or Z5. At this point, it has to be cleared by BMW. However, it is highly likely that the November 2018 production version will go under the Z4 name.

The Supra and BMW Z4 have been seen publicly being tested. Both vehicles will be produced alongside one-another at Magna in Austria. In few months the upcoming BMW Z4 is going to be previewed. It is expected to be one well-made roadster, something that is an undeniable characteristic of a BMW vehicle.
