If so, it will take either some inside connections at GM Fleet or better to find them. I've spoken with our fleet zone manager before concerning exactly this, he advised me that it was very difficult to come across statistics such as those.

Is this article incorrect? It states that 7,305 Caprices were built.

http://www.thedrive.com/news/10668/the-final-chevy-ss-was-built-today

And this states that 15,799 were built.

Shame they didn't actually show that last Caprice on the line, instead of depending on stock photos from what I believe is one of the original test/demo vehicles. :roll:

The top article says that "we got" meaning US imported? The GM ones shows actual production by year, wonder if half of those were built and either kept in AU or sent to other countries? Where are those Chinese Buick cars made?

I don't know... the second link claims that 15,799 cars were USA sales. At least one of the links is incorrect... maybe both.

And where are the Middle Eastern Caprices made? Are they all made in Australia? There seems to be a million of them. Just search you tube for "drifting caprice middle east" lol.

Well, I just checked and sales figures to-date are updated. Here's the past several months worth.

September 2017, 183 units sold.

October 2017, 71 units sold.

November 2017, 28 units sold.

December 2017, 18 units sold.

January 2018, 22 units sold.

So, as of current date this brings us to a total of 15,821 units sold.

OK, sales information for Caprice updates.

February, 2018 - 7 units sold.

March, 2018 - 11 units sold.

These sales probably represent some of the last 2017's in dealer stock and maybe a few of the demo and fleet development units.
