When my good friend Rudi aka gs/e60/1m? first told me that there will be a huge Porsche exhibit on display in Brussels – I knew I just had to go for a visit! And I am so glad I did!! Never before had I seen such historic cars landmark cars from Porsche! A lot of the cars were on loan by Porsche Museum, but there were also quite a few cars I had NEVER seen before.

We bring you the latest and greatest look at the BMW M4 Convertible (F83), which is seen here in Matte Frozen Black and with minimal camouflage.
Mechanically, the M4 Convertible will share with the M4 Coupe and M3 Sedan. Stylistically, it shares much of the M4 Coupe’s design, but is differentiated by its folding hardtop roof (without double-bubble), lack of B pillar and different trunk lid shape. The trunk lid styling looks to be something halfway between the high curvy CSL-style ‘duckbill’ trunk of the M4 Coupe and the flat trunk design of the M3 Sedan.
The M4 Convertible should see its introduction sometime late this year.
