The success of the "New Class" sedans allowed BMW to re-start their 2+2 coupe line in 1965 with the release of the 2000C and the 2000CS. Both models were sold up to 1969 and were eventually superseded by the 2+2 coupe versions of the
"New Six" Sedans (E3), the "New Six" CS (E9). Released in 1968, the first model made was the 2.8-L 2800 CS. The model was replaced in 1971 by 3 models: the 3.0-L 3.0 CS, the fuel-injected 3.0 CSi and the long wheel base 3.0 CSL. In 1974, an entry-level version was added, the 2.5 CS. All models went out of production in 1976 and replaced by
BMW E24 (6 Series).
