11.111 cars in the 8Coupe archives

18 months after passing the 10k cars milestone we are pleased to announce that the 8Coupe team has again added more than one thousand new 8ers to the archive which on this 11-11 coincidentally holds data for 11.111 8-series cars. 

The 8Coupe archive has seen a significant increase in size by and large due to larger sized pictures taken all over the globe and now exceeds 50GB of data. Within the archive we now store 320.000 files of which 200.000 depict 8-series cars and more than 37.000 PDF files of sales ads and supplementing information.

...it appears that following the 25th anniversary in 2014 car collectors have started to smile at the 8-series and prices are finally on the way up.

8,888 8ers in the 8Coupe archive... and more!

A very busy year of the 8Coupe team has led to another milestone - more than 9,000 cars were in the archives at the end of May 2013 and en route in the same month we also passed the "magic" 8er number of 8,888 cars.

 We are only a few cars shy of 30% (9187 cars) of the entire worldwide production and already a wide margin beyond the past ambitious long term target of 25% (7655 cars) reached in February 2012. 

The size of the entire 8Coupe archive has grown to 33 GB data containing near 240.000 files of which 145.000 are car pictures and almost 29.000 are PDF documents relating to specific cars.

25% archived 8ers milestone

The fundamental milestone of archiving one quarter of the worldwide 8er production has been reached on February 29th, 2012. 

Without the initial idea to tackle a daunting task: cataloging all 30,621 8er build sheets and starting the 8Coupe registry & archive, our knowledge about the 8er in general and seen from many specific angles would be much smaller.
