BMW 1M Coupe Orders Ceased, Production Ends Summer 2012

Is the BMW M3 too big or too heavy for you to call it a true M-car? The solution has to be buying a 1-Series M Coupe, which has frequently been called a spiritual successor to the original E30 M3.
While it might be a melange of parts - the body of a 1-Series, rear axle, suspension and brakes from the E46 and E90 - it’s also a pure driver’s car. The looks might be a bit questionable, but it’s sure to become a modern classic, especially now that BMW has stopped taking orders.

Production was always going to be strictly limited, and now Car and Driver reports the 1M is no longer available for order from BMW dealers. Orders that have already been made will be catered to by continued production until this summer.

Since BMW is focusing on development of the new 1-Series, and already has the M135i in development, it’s unlikely there will be another production run of the M Coupe. If you have it, treasure it!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
