I wouldn't say the M6 is the best coupe/cabrio - Maybe cars from Porsche, Lamborghini or Ferrari can claim that. But regardless of your budget, you can't beat an M5. So M6 doesn't get a disproprtionate share, and is has fiercer competition in a smaller market.
It's all about the market share.
There always has been a bigger market for sedan than coupes.
You can ask the same question why are there more 3 series sedan than coupe. I think you'll get the same answers.
