But there a rumors, that the M-GmbH is newly discussing an new Z4 M-Roadster to fill the gap between end of Production of the e9x M3 and the begin of production of the f3x M3. 1 to 1+1/2 year seems to be the normal gap between M-generations ... so the discussion about an Z4M as gap filler makes only sence if the complete M3 production would really ends with the end of the sedan production.
The reason for an production end must not necessarily have to do with the end of produktion from the base model ... if emission laws are getting tighter, it could be possible that it is too costly to modify an engine for an rest production life of half an year!
This could an reason why the complete M3 production could ends in November 2011.
