Before shining a spotlight on the 10 BMW 8 Series competitors to consider, let’s get into the 8 Series itself. There’s going to be a four-door Gran Coupe at some point, but the first two variants to launch for this model year are the 2019 BMW M850i xDrive two-door coupe and convertible. Both cars enjoy 523 horsepower and all-wheel drive. The 8 Series is based on a platform similar to the 7 Series full-size sedan. And while many coupes and convertibles are decidedly sporty, the 8 Series is big enough to add more than a few luxury touches. Price-wise, the coupe starts off at $112,895 and the convertible begins at $122,395. Now let's bring on the competition.
