The German based automaker BMW has recently announced that the outgoing version of the BMW M3 is currently sold out.
The announcement has been made by the company’s boss, Friedrich Nitschke, who has recently spoken to the guys at Car & Driver. According to Nitschke, the outgoing BMW M3 Coupe and BMW M3 Convertible, which will be replaced by the M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible, will remain in production for approximately six more months. The BMW M GmbH official also downplayed on the possibility of all-wheel drive versions of the next-gen M3 and M4, saying that those looking for a high-performance AWD BMW can get the X5 M or the X6 M.
As a quick reminder, the outgoing generation of the BMW M3, also known as the E90 (Sedan), the E92 (Coupe) and the E93 (Convertible) has been in production ever since 2007. The model is the fourth generation of the BMW M3 and it was first announced at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. The M3 is powered by a 4.0 liter V8 engine, which is producing a total output of 414 HP (309 kW) at 8,300 rpm, with a peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, in standard, but from 2008, BMW is also offering a new seven-speed dual clutch gearbox.
