C5 had total production of 248,715 cars over 8 model years.
C6 had total production of 215,123 cars over 9 model years.
C7 has total production of 154,685 cars over 5 model years through 2018 production which was cut short in January 2018 (only 9,686 cars) to introduce the 2019 ZR1.

Now for the SWAG: We know 2019 production will go into July of this year and sales to the end of 2018 were 18,791. So maybe another 9,000 cars on top of that for a total 2019 production of ~28,000 cars. Thus C7 total production might be approximately 186,000 total cars over 6 years.

So annually,
31k Average for the C5
24k Average for the C6
31k Average for the C7

Never would have guessed the C5 was that high...or that the C6 was that low...though it did get a bit long in the tooth. Thanks Bill!

Last FE, possibly the last M/T and lower production, all good things!
