If you needed any reassurance the Chevrolet SS is a rare bird, General Motors has released official production numbers for the 2016 model year as the vehicle enters its final, 2017 model year.
Posted to the official SS Forum, the 2016 SS production is surprisingly down from the 2015 and 2014 model years. In total, just 2,202 were built. 19 of those were assembled as internal GM vehicles (press and company vehicles).
For this space, we’ll simply break it down by color, but GM has provided every option breakdown at the link above.
- 764 were produced in Black
- 438 were produced in Heron White
- 294 were produced in Slipstream Blue
- 200 were produced in Some Like It Hot Red Metallic
- 188 were produced in Silver Ice Metallic
- 168 were produced in Red Hot
- 76 were produced in Mystic Green
- 56 were produced in Regal Peacock Metallic
- 37 were produced in Jungle Green Metallic
Of the 2,202 produced, just 711 of them are wandering about with the six-speed manual gearbox, a 32-percent take rate. In some cases, owners can count on their hands as to how many vehicles are roaming the U.S. with identical build specs.
So, you could say finding a pre-owned Chevrolet SS will be a bit of a challenge.
