In six short months we’ll be greeted by the all new 2018 BMW Z4. But the first step in that unveiling is the obligatory lightly disguised “concept” that gives us our first look at the car.

Debuting in two weeks time at Pebble Beach, the Z4 concept will give us our first look at not just a new roadster but also the first fruit of the BMW / Toyota collaboration that has been in the works for five years now.

We expect the 2018 BMW Z4 RP debut in the first half of next year with both manual and automatic options along with four and six cylinder engines.
