Production of BMW's E36 3 Series platform-based Z3 roadster had commenced in 1995 but development of a coupe version was left to a group of BMW engineers working in their own time. The resulting E36/8 coupe was unveiled at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show and shared the same platform and parts with the roadster but featured a chassis-stiffening hatch area and as a result was over two and a half times stiffer than the open car. Available from September 1998, the Z3 coupe was produced in 2.8, 3.0i and M Coupe variants.
