I want the Solstice to be a rare sighting and I do not want to pull up to an intersection and see 2 or 3 others all waiting at the same light. At least not for a year or two.
I found a large book in Chapters on BMW giving year-by-year production on all models. I didn't look at the Z3 or Z4 because I was looking for my car. The numbers on the 2001 330Ci were around 21,000 coupes, 11,000 convertibles.
You can see the current Z4 numbers in the Automotive news weekly report, because the Z4 is built in the USA. Year to date numbers are around 18,000 I believe.
I just looked up this week's data for Z4s.
