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.  During the past year and despite one of the major markets, Japan obviously running out of cars, the 8Coupe team managed to find and identify more than 1.000 E31´s previously unaccounted for.  

With more than 9,000 cars in the archives 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. 

Those 9,000 cars are distributed as follows:

Archival rates depicted below (absolute and based on percentages):    

Growth rates by type code between 07/2011 - 05/2013 

Percentage of archived cars by production year

Comparison between 07/2011 (7.000 cars in archive) and 05/2013 (9.000 cars in archive)



An estimate for 2013 and beyond:

We will continue to reach out for new targets and hope to be able to report two new milestones by the end of  2014 - 10.000 cars archived (32.7% of total production) and 1/3 of the total production (10206 cars).
