According to my local BMW dealer, the Dingolfing plant was originally planning to make the M6 and take new orders thru February, 2019. However, the decision was made to end production at the end Of September. I have been unable to independently verify this piece of information.

If anyone “in the know” could verify this, I would like to know as well.

Take care,

According to this website, GC production indeed ended in September 2018. Though confusingly, BMWUSA website still allows you to build a M6GC on its website right now.

Model year rules vary between Europe and USA. Traditionally, new model years start in October of every month in the USA to coincide with tv advertising, but new model years can be as early as 3rd calendar quarter starting in July! Only rules in USA that government model year designations are done for emissions purposes, but has great flexibility, read this:

So don't be too hung up on the 2019 designation. It's no different than a 2018 model.
