Default 928 Production

Porsche just built their millionth 911 (1,000,000)

We know that they made about 61,000 928's ( same amount as Ford builds F150's per month)
Question is... of all the car models Porsche has built, is the 928 the lowest ? I don't think you can count all transaxle cars in one group.
944's would be one group including 924-968's
356
911's
My guess is that we have the lowest production numbers.

924 totaled around 150,000 cars IIRC. 944 totaled around 160,000 and I'm not sure about 968's, but I think much lower than 61,000

I saw 4200 968s mentioned over in the 924/944/968 forum recently. They were only made for 4 years, 92-95, when sales weren't the strongest.

I really wouldn't classify the 924, 944 and 968 as the same car.

But, then again, I wouldn't classify the "911" as only one car either. Even if you put the 911, 964 and 993 in the "same car" category, the 996 is very different from those, the 997 very different from the 996 and the 991 very different from the 997.

I'd have to agree on the '24 '44 '68 not being the same but they share the same basic underpinnings. Much the like the 911 I suppose. The 928 however.....

If you're going to count things like a 904 then a 550 would also have to be included. Maybe it's not a real street car but James Dean seemed to think it was...

918, Carrera GT, GT2, GT3, GT3RS all have MUCH lower production numbers and those are recent examples of actual production cars.

That sort of makes this a tricky question and one mainly of semantics since those 3 are 911-based. Should you then break the 928 production numbers into S, S4, GT, GTS, etc.?

The figure that I always wrap my head around is that they built as many 928s in 18 years as they built 3.2 Carreras from '84-'89.

My experience with production numbers has been that those only really matter to Porsche enthusiasts and the regular Joe at your local car show doesn't really care. I've owned several Porsche models with low production/USA import figures like 944S (16-valve), '88 924S (higher compression) and that hasn't really helped re-sale. Ultimately I've found those production/import figures nice talking points and interesting only to a handful of like-minded Porsche nuts. Oddly, it still figures in my buying decisions for that next neglected rescue Porsche.

I think its interesting to note Porsche produced 1500+ 1973 911 RS models and slightly under 500 of the 1989 928 GT's...and fewer SE's

Recently I saw a figure of 77,000+ for 356 production (I think in one of Leffingwell's books) which surprised me as I always imagined production numbers were very low in the early years of the company, though I believe final 356 was manufactured around 1965, so a production run almost as long as the 928 but much less expensive!

And yet they'll slobber all over a Mustang that was 1 of 156 with that particular color and interior code. Go figure. I have never understood why the American car enthusiasts are so oblivious to real rarity in other marques.

But that's American Muscle and vastly superior to German made (i.e. more manly)

968: 11,245
928: 61,056

It seems that 79,470 356s were produced:
