BMWBlog has acquired what appears to be a photo of the BMW 4-Series Convertible ahead of its launch later this year.

The person who sent this picture says it's a prototype but 90 percent of the design will be retained for the production version. As expected, it looks like a toned down version of the 4-Series Coupe Concept shown last month at 2013 NAIAS in Detroit and keeps the same design cues seen on the production-ready 4-Series Coupe which we have spotted in several spy shots.

The coupe will enter production this July in Munich, while its cabrio sibling is scheduled to go into production in November at BMW's Regensburg factory. Based on a leaked production chart, the 4-Series Convertible (F33) will be available as 428i and 435i models, with no plans at the moment for xDrive all-wheel drive versions.
