How often have we seen one-year gaps in a regular model's production run? Doesn't seem common, but I suppose the 1 is a niche vehicle in the US anyway. Still, if they have enough demand globally and factory capacity to keep making them in Leipzig then it would seem a bit odd to have a gap year with no 1/2-series coupes. It's not like they'd have to invest in new tooling or develop a new production line to support it.
