What Vehicle Will BMW Debut?
“Suffice it to say that this new model will certainly be an emotional addition to the BMW range.” – BMW Statement During Press Release
In 2018, BMW promises to debut an “emotional” vehicle at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Thus, many people are pointing towards the official Z4 model release. In August 2017, BMW brought the Z4 Roadster Concept to the Pebble Beach Concours show. On top of the possible Z4 debut, BMW will also display the new 8-Series. Both cars are part of the new line-up that will hit markets for the 2019 model year. But, there is also no guarantee which car BMW will debut at the show.
The ‘2019’ BMW Z4
For the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2018, there is speculation of a Z4 debut. If this is the case, it will most likely be a 2019 BMW Z4 due to the August timing. The BMW Z4 Roadster Concept officially debuted at Monterey Car Week last year. The expectations are that the Z4 will be offered in an inline-4 and inline-6 engine. The inline-4 starts around 180 horsepower and 200 lb.-ft. of torque. As per the inline-6, it should sport around 320 horsepower and 340 lb.-ft. of torque. At a price of $50,000 to $60,000, this car will be an impressive, affordable car. Although, in the end, the Z4 does relate closely to the new Toyota Supra. That car won’t hit market until next year.
Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2018
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is a high-end luxury show at the world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Course. The event is held at the lodge with its prestigious location and rating. Each year, manufacturers bring new cars to display while spectators bring their finest collectible vehicles. General Admission Tickets start at a whopping $325 prior to August 1, and $375 beginning August 1. From there, prices only increase with the next level equating to $825 per ticket. Obviously, this event caters to the wealthy as the base tickets cost more than a Beyoncé concert.

Overall, BMW expects to ‘wow’ the Pebble Beach spectators this year. While the 8-Series will be on display at the show, many still wonder what BMW will also bring to the table. The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is no joke, so BMW will hopefully make an impressive debut. The ‘2019’ BMW Z4 is a great option for a victory at the show. Many people have been waiting for the revival of the Z4, and no one will be disappointed with this design. In conclusion, time will only tell as the debut will be held on Sunday, August 26, 2018.
