They aren't going to build one year of this car. They're also not going to build MY2011 for only 5 months then change to 2012 suddenly. If they build MY2012 in E82 they will build the 1M. It will switch to 2012 after December and run as a late production model. We have the 2012 in Canada currently. Once that happens the list will be updated.
They're just trying to build hype. I hope haha...
Sorry to disappoint, but the full chart also shows builds for BMW models which start later than March 2012 (as late as September 2012).
For example, see this M3 production/model year schedule for 2011 and 2012 model years. It includes production dates all the way through the end of 2012.
