The German car manufacturer BMW has ceased production of the 1-Series Coupe and Convertible. As you probably find out, the BMW 1-Series Convertible phased out in June, while the 1-Series Coupe rolled out of the production line in August.
This mustn’t shock you because, next week, BMW will launch the 2-Series Coupe. The convertible version will probably unveiled somewhere at the end of the year. The 2-Series Coupe will go on sale in March and the Convertible will arrive shortly thereafter.
According to rumors, the upcoming 2-Series will be unveiled in three engine versions. A 2.0 liter petrol unit with 183 horsepower and 270 Nm peak of torque, a 2.0 liter diesel engine with 183 horsepower and 380 Nm and the mighty 3.0 liter petrol motor which is able to offer 326 horsepower and 450 Nm peak of torque.
The latter version will be named M235i and will sprint from not to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, while the top speed is clocked at 250 km/h.Source: BMW
