Rumor: BMW to Axe Several Models Including 8 Series and Z4
 

 
It looks like the numbers being crunched up by the accountants in Munich are not really adding up to much. According to a new report from Automobile Magazine, several BMW models will be getting axed in the future, to make sure the company remains profitable on the long run. The report says the financial side of things is not exactly smooth and that certain cuts are necessary in order to make sure the BMW brand remains relevant in 10 years time.

Even though right now BMW is profitable, things are changing and the resources needed to develop new solutions are going to eat away at the profitability of the company. The stocks have already suffered quite a hit in the last four years, prices dropping from $137 to $73 right now, a 47 percent decrease. That’s huge and things are going to look even worse if the looming trade war between the US and the rest of the world actually kicks off.

Thus, according to Automobile Magazine, some tough decisions have been made. Apart from the already announced departures of the 2 Series Convertible, 3 Series GT and 2 Series Gran Tourer models, BMW is rumored to cut models other models such as: the Z4, standard 7 Series (not the long wheelbase one) and both 2-door 8 Series versions (Coupe and Convertible). Out of these models mentioned, we’re inclined to agree with the Z4 and 7 Series LWB a*sessments, but remain reserved on the 8 Series prediction. The rumor mill around Munich churned out recently that BMW was even looking at potential electric 8 Series down the road and a coupe EV will always be quite attractive for the high-end segment.

Automobile Mag further adds that only the 8 Series Gran Coupe is to survive the model cuts.

With the 8 Series just hitting the market, we’re still far away from a final decision, especially considering that a new CEO will take the reins next month.

There are more changes coming too, as the X8 has apparently been green lit but not as a Coupe version of the X7. According to the same report, the X8 will be available only in M Performance and M guises and will have a hybrid powertrain in the X8 M version with an electric range of up to 60 miles. That’s very interesting news and a hint at what could come next for upcoming M cars.

I'll gladly take the slaps. fu*k BMW. Overrated garbage



Even if the cars were great (which they ain't), I'd never buy one cause I wouldn't wanna be a*sociated with all the sh*t heads who drive em and don't use blinkers.

And I won't even start on those repair costs for basic sh*t after a couple years. Ultimate Driving Machine tho...

Idk why they'd cut the 8 series. I've legit seen more 8's the past couple months than 2019 3's and 5's.

Not without a manual. And what's up with that long goofy row of buttons?

Only about 12 percent of C7s were sold with the 7spd manual. They will do just fine. Nothing wrong with the row of buttons. Helped keep the cabin simple and sensibly ergonomic. Chevy made n*ggas go back and rewrite their verses.

Sounds like 12% real n*ggas and a bunch of pussies who can't drive a stick.



The car is cool, but yall overhyping like a MFer. The base model that's "$60K" ain't gonna look like your pic. That row of buttons is trash and it looks like the steering wheel partially blocks the touch screen

Also I have a Chevy right now. They don't provide nearly the service of other car manufacturers. Just cause this car is cheap don't mean it's gonna be all great. Their sh*tty service is what's gonna keep the C8 from threatening the competition.

Make them show and prove before you break out the pom poms

Again, Chevy made n*ggas go back to the drawing board. Whether or not you like the buttons and the 8 speed dual clutch, the car is a game changer and a slap in the face of all that overpriced bullsh*t.
Where else you gonna get a car that fast, mid engined at such a low price?
Nowhere, thats where.

Also, I think Dodge is in the best position of all. They went back to their 60s and 70s roots and don't have to compete with anyone.

You'll see. Just wait....

It's not Apples to Apples like you think. It's a reason it's cheaper. They don't offer nearly the services as other manufacturers. Those other mid engine car makers treat their customers like royalty. You ain't gonna get anything like that for this Vette

And if this bi*ch has ANY problems....

all that sh*t is correct but its funny that youre using a 60k car to describe how cars are overpriced

in reality no car should cost 60k

more than anything all car companies been taking hits financially on useless cars

How though, I'm talking about a 60k Corvette not a 60k Camry.

The Corvette is the biggest slap in the face to every manufacturer in the sports/supercar market and now that I think of it, every other market too.

FCA been k*lling it with their lineup the last 10 years as well. 700hp car for a fraction of what a Porsche or Ferrari costs

You're right about cars overall becoming too expensive still.

Yeah alright lol

We'll just have to see then I guess.

I'm not suggesting that people who usually buy expensive European sh*tboxes are going to cross shop with this car, however, this car is about to apply pressure like never before. The price point is hard to beat and its making automakers take a hard look in the mirror plair.

The Supra (a Z4), just came out and is already obsolete because of the C8. As well as the new GT500 that ain't even drop yet. If they are smart they'll take OT Genasis and Young Dolph's advice. Get that hate out ya heart pair.
