During the tour of the Wixom plant, we asked the guide what color was the most popular. He said that Ford really didn't keep tracking numbers by color but his guess, just from observations, was that blue was the most popular color. He estimated that the final quantity of 2002s will be 31000+. He arrived at this number by calculating the line speed of 12.4 cars completed per hour, (100/day, single shift), times the number of work days until the scheduled end of production date (11/14).
