M8 Coupe and Convertible Face Uncertain Future in US

Bimmerpost reports that BMW will not be allocating new inventories for the M8 Coupe and Convertible for the 2021 model year. That means that if you want to buy a 2021 M8, your only option will be a Gran Coupe.

Although the models haven’t been officially discontinued, it doesn’t look good for the model, which had the misfortune of reaching our shores shortly before the global pandemic. Sales of the M8, along with demand for premium coupes and convertibles market-wide, has slowed as the economy slides into a recession as a result of the global pandemic.

Prices for the M8 Coupe start at $133,000 in 2020 and the Convertible starts at $142,500. The Gran Coupe, meanwhile, starts at a positively reasonable $130,000.

The good news for fans—albeit bad news for BMW dealers—is that one of the reasons BMW isn’t allocating new cars for 2021 is because there are plenty of 2020 Coupes and Convertibles sitting in dealer lots. As a result, picking up a 2020 model that’s new next year shouldn’t pose too much of a problem and may come with discounts.
