I just purchased a 2007 S60R and was wondering if anyone knows:

  • the week/year when the last 2006 and the first 2007 Rs were produced?
  • how late into 2006 or 2007 Volvo continued to produce Rs (week/year)?
  • the week/year when Volvo began producing the 2007.5 models (second run)?

I found an article from April 2007 (http://www.caranddriver.com/news/volvo-drops-r-variants-for-2008-car-news) predicting that the R would be discontinued in 2008, so the last would probably be produced in July 2007 when Volvo began producing the 2008 models.

Does anyone know if this is an accurate timeline? Were Rs still rolling off the production line in July 2007? I am trying to get a sense of where my 2007 falls within that model year. I know it's not a 2007.5 model because I do not have steel front control arms or an Aux-In jack in my center armrest compartment.

(For anyone curious, my chassis number is 609076 and my date of production was 7/17/06. It's in-service date (original purchase date) was 1/19/07, so almost exactly 6 months later.)

Mine does (have the steel arms and the AUX IN) and has a production date of March 2007. When I checked with Volvo, they only made a few hundred worldwide of the 2007.5 production.

Another March car here...steel arms, with aux port. Can't find the actual production date, but it was made structure week 200712. So 12th week of 2007 would be the week of March 18-24.
