Most firm date we have is a screen shot of an internal BMW document staying that model year 2012 of the M3 coupe/convertible will end in June of 2012. There have been some recent rumors that it may extend a little longer than that, into the fall of 2012, like the M3 sedan did... (either as a 2012 model or as a short-run 2013 model). Those are rumors based on the following:

a. Current body style will race in DTM, etc. in 2012. Regulations would not allow an out of production car to race in those series.
b. The head of M North America (some guy named Russell) recently said in a video interview about the new M5 that the M3 was not in its twilight. "One or two" more years he said.

A few months before the new 3 series (or 4 series) coupe begins production, the current body style will stop being produced. So it can't last much longer than late fall of next year. EDITED to add: Matt Russell may mean "one or two" years in the sense of "model years" (i.e. 2012, 2013 maybe). We are currently in model year 2012.

I've already put my order in (to secure an allocation), but have flexibility on timing of production. Therefore I've been watching this information closely.
