    Production numbers ?

    It doesn't seem that much information comes out for questions about production numbers, but here goes anyway.

    Based on cars.com, it looks like on Monday I bought the last manual shift CTS Coupe in California, and the second-to-last one in the country, since manual transmission is no longer available. It would be interesting to know how many manual shift coupes were built for California or for the country. That information would go great on the license plate or license plate frame. Does anyone know, or does anyone know of a source?

    Thanks in advance.

    I get to answer my own question. My dealer called Detroit, and like it says up there, there were 65 manual shift CTS Coupes built for 2011. And there apparently will be no more!

    65, that's it? I wonder how many manual, V-series wagons were built? 3 maybe!

    Cool, then I must be #2 of 65

    I would think there were more than 65 MT Coupes built.

    65 for Cali or the Country? If Country, no wonder GM dropped the MT for 2012. My 2011 Coupe is a stick. Caddy dealer told me he has been selling Caddys for 20 years; my stick was his first Caddy MT sale.

    Wonder how many in Cali? Al, it may be just you & I!

    This is for the non-V Coupes, I would think.

    Based on this information the 2011 Evoluton Green CTS Performance Package 6 speed manual coupe that I found at the end of January in PA actually was the last 6 speed in the country. It was the only one I could find........I have been trying to get production data on this question; now the rarity has been confirmed. By the way, this one was in dealer inventory for over 1 year. Lucky I found what I was looking for! By the way it is resting comfortably in Minnesota waiting for summer weather..........

    To MotownPimp: yes, 65 in the country. My guess for California population is you, me, and two to five other guys :-)

    To wburchill: based on cars.com inventory listing, in late January there were two manual-shift CTS coupes in the country-- mine in Santa Clara CA, and one in TX. The TX car vanished from the listing the weekend of 28 Jan, as did mine. I am not certain that all dealers list their inventories with cars.com.

    My car was built in Dec '10. Had 138 mi. when I drove it. I had the dealer change the oil before I picked it up.

    Before I special ordered my 2011 CTS Coupe 3.6 Performance Thunder Gray with Sunroof and Black interior 6 spd MT back in Feb 2011 the dealer tried to sell me on a Evelution Green coupe out of Pa. this must have been the one wburchill bought.
