I believe it is about 37,500. My understanding is that Cadillac would consider it a success if it sold 30,000 in its first production year. With that said though, remember it started selling in Jan 2002 and the 04 came in July/August - 18 months. it will be interesting to see how the 04 does.

I will say I get alot of comments on the car.

If you subscribe the car to www.compnine.com ($5 for any 5 complete build sheets) your download will give you the totals, as well as how many were built with each option.

How did you find this long-dead thread ?????? The last poster has not been here for 16 years !!!

Holy 16 year thread bump, Batman! :eek:

I've never seen any sort of VIN break-down for the 1st gen CTS to show how many were produced and what options they had (something like this).
Yeah, I have been digging lol.
I have to think that it is a rare unit. I have the Lux package and the 5 speed. I know that even the performance V's only had a 10% number per year, the non V's had to be less than that as dealers ordered them with autos to sell, and not sit. If that's the case, then less than 2700 were produced with manuals, even less than that with the 2nd tier Lux option. I would be willing to bet a majority of the 2003 manual CTS's were with the sport package.

Further tidbits about the 18 month run of 2003's. According to the numbers, there were 75,428 total produced. 49,646 had the soft ride FE1, so that means there were only 25,782 with the sport suspension FE4. 58,158 were SLM stock orders.

Not in the generation you're looking at. The '04-07 Vs were 100% manuals.

Anyway, interesting to see how the numbers stacked up for your combination of options.

I missed that one by a mile. I was looking at later years. Good catch!

Yeah, I didn't do a cross of them all to see total rarity, but It is certainly interesting. I don't know how accurate the stackup of options versus number of like vehicles adds up. I am sure it can be off at times. But I bet the numbers are within 10% overall.
