If you’re looking for a BMW M8 2021 coupe or convertible and want to customize it to your exact specifications, there is bad news. BMW from North America is not currently accepting new orders for these vehicles. The 2021 M8 Gran Coupé is unaffected by this decision, so you don’t mind having two more doors, it’s still an option.
BMW Blog first reported this story and discovered that dealers have “a decent amount” of M8 coupes and convertibles in their inventory. As long as you don’t mind not being able to specify every detail of your order, it’s possible to get one of these great tours.
Motor1.com has contacted BMW for further details. “Due to the current global pandemic, BMW in North America will not bring additional inventory of BMW M8 coupes or convertibles to the US market at this time,” said BMW Products and Technologies spokesperson, Oleg Satanovsky. “Customers wishing to purchase a BMW M8 Coupé or Cabriolet are encouraged to contact their local dealer to discuss vehicle availability. The 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupé model year remains available to the customer ordered.”
Satanovsky said the company “could not comment on the inventory or when the order could reopen”.
In March 2020, BMW would have trouble selling the 8 Series in the United States. At that time, there would have been more than 2,000 unsold copies, and more than 700 of them were “priority 5”, which means that the dealer did not want the vehicle and hoped that another room would take it. Customers were showing higher demand for the three-row X7 crossover rather than the large passenger coupe.
