At long last I've been able to obtain production data for both base XLR's and XLR-V's and there are some surprises among the statistics.

Total Production by Model Year:

2004 - 4,387 units

2005 - 4,190

2006 - 4,135

Of the total 4,135 for 2006, 1,147 units (28%) were V's. That's a lot more than I would have thought and significantly more than the 700-800 that's been talked about on this Forum. It helps explain why there are so many unsold V's out there and why prices have dropped so precipitously. Score another one for the GM marketing geniuses!

In terms of color, for the 2006 model year, of the 2,989 base XLR's produced, 28% (837) were Infrared, 23% (685) were Black and 20% (604) were Platinum. For the 1,147 V's, 49% (562) were Black, 26% (299) were Platinum and 25% (286) were Infrared. Again, helping explain the plethora of Black V's out there unsold (score #2).

This information comes directly from the powers that be at the Bowling Green plant so I am confident of its accuracy. I have further statistics for model years 2004 and 2005 and for the other colors in 2006 if anyone is interested.

Thanks Chuck for the information. I own a 2004 Black Raven XLR. I would be interested in knowing the additional stats you have.:party "Blue Bunnies"

For 2004 the color breakdown was as follows:

Black(41U) - 1,311 units - 29.9%
Red(86U) - 914 units - 20.8%
Platinum(67U) - 816 units - 18.6%
Shale(46U) - 630 units - 14.4%
Blue(19U) - 371 units - 8.5%
Gray(88U) - 243 units - 5.5%
NM Amethyst(95U) - 102 units - 2.3%

I've included the paint codes because sometimes the names can be confusing. GM wasn't creative enough to develop special paint for the XLR in most cases so they used paint from the Corvette and gave it another name. A good example is the new Passion Red for the '07 XLR which is really Victory Red on the Corvette.

Hopefully this helps.

Now how many were actually sold?

Heres my prediction for 2007:

Pasison red sold = 4 cars
Purple sold = 7 cars

The Vette numbers are published. Are these published anywhere? Allen thought the V number was about only 700, I think. Of course, another question would be of the 1100 or so V number you were given, how many were exported?
