Production Numbers - Z4 Coupe

Postby Hizza - Tue Nov 24, 2009 7:57 pm

For anyone that was wondering how rare their Z4 Coupe is I contacted BMW (sad, I know :wink: ) to find out total production numbers and they advised:

BMW Z4 3.0si Coupe (manual) = 1598 :driving:

BMW Z4 3.0si Coupe (Automatic) = 1998

Afraid I don't have the numbers for Z4M Coupes but with only 3,600 Z4 3.0 Coupes in the world this will explain why its a blue moon moment when I see one driving the other way. I'm surprised so many are autos but I assume a lot of these are in the US where there are probably more autos per head than in Europe...

My next question, which BMW won't be able to answer, but maybe someone here can, is how does this compare with other sports cars - are there more Ferrari 308/328's around than Z4C's for example. Would be nice to say my Z4 is rarer than a Ferrari/TVR/Cayman etc!

For example.... Ferrari F355 production numbers totalled 11,273 so Z4C's are roughly three times rarer! :D

I agree, they must only be UK numbers. I think the last I read somewhere, the total Z4C build was closer to 20,000 (worldwide). But I may be wrong...

i think 20,000 sounds more realistic, but i'm sure in UK the total for manual would be more than auto, so may be 3500 is a true figure

http://www.automotiveworld.com/news/man ... production

The last car was made on 28 August, with 197,950 vehicles produced over the Z4's five-year lifecycle. Bobby Hit, a spokesman for BMW's US manufacturing operations, states that 180,856 vehicles were roadsters and 17,094 were coupes. Despite the name, the latter was in fact a hatchback.

The last car to be made will remain at the factory for display in the Zentrum, the museum and visitors' centre.
