The next E89 generation BMW Z4 spy photos are still flowing at WCF. Over the past two days we have seen Z4 prototypes here and here wearing the least amount of camouflage thus revealing a folding metal roof and the best body form details yet. This time spies have perfectly executed the over the shoulder blind spot approach showing us a glimpse of the interior.
It appears the Z4's interior will move away from the minimalist look of the current E85 generation in favor of more refinement and functionality. We can see wood trim throughout plus additional and larger dials just below the central air vents. Above, we can see the folding infotainment screen similar to the previous model but this one is much larger. Just like the new 7-Series and forthcoming 5-Series, electronic parking brake and Driving Dynamics Control buttons have migrated down onto the center console surrounding the gear shift lever. Most inevitably, we can also see an iDrive controller knob positioned just south of the gear shifter. The steering wheel is all-new with multi-function buttons as well.
We are looking for a debut of the E89 Z4 Roadster hopefully in Los Angeles next month, but our money is on Detroit in January. Production will begin shortly thereafter in Regensburg plant in Germany.
