Not sure why BMW doesn't offer factory cf trim option on non-M models. Audi does on s model. MBenz does on 43 model. Why!

Does this mean there isn't a "Coupe" model for 2018?

There will be no 2018 coupe. With the body style coming due for a refresh, we may not see another.

So is the F13 6 Series coupe ending production worldwide, or is this a BMW NA specific decision? I assume the latter, but would love to know for sure.

From the upcoming model pipeline thread

F12 6er - 10/18
F13 6er - 10/18
F06 6GC - 02/19

It doesn't specify M6 or 640i/650i though, one could end production earlier than the other?

The other thing is that now the only option for a manual V8 is the M6, I'm not sure how long that option will remain for.

Right, but that information would be superseded by any new direction, whether it were taken by BMW NA or BMW AG. I strongly doubt that the decision to end the F13 short of seven years production - regardless of who is behind it - was planned from years ago. I believe it would be relatively new.

Or are the on-again, off-again rumors of the 6 Series coupe going away true?
