2019 BMW Z4

I understand things have to be modified for production.

But these actual patent fillings from the new Z4 are pretty sad.
Not because the production car is ugly. (It looks really nice. Just like previous models.)
But it really does not look more modern than the current "almost 10 year old" model.

And it changed a lot from the concept. It is just way too watered down. Erasing all the personality the concept design had.
Why bother showing a concept in the first place?
Either do some crazy inspiring design. Or what Honda/Acura has been doing. Which is showing us the production car with small concept bits.

But why would they show a really nice design that looks almost production ready, to just change the whole thing.

Why did they soften up the shape of the headlights??? There was nothing extreme or unproducable about the concept’s headlight shape.

It's a shame. The concept looked freakin gorgeous.

it looks like the Mazda Miata/Fiat 124, did they make it for BMW and just change the bumpers?

The production front end is just so sad and plain next to the concept.

I'll bet the front end is toned down because of European pedestrian safety regs. The show car could have someone go down instead of ending up on the hood.
