I don't know of any sources, but the numbers I've heard suggest about
250,000 total B13 Sentras per year, and about 4% or 10,000 of those were
SE-Rs. I have no solid sources to back that up, but they sound
reasonable for a fairly high-volume econo-box, and the portion of SE-Rs
I've seen over the years.
Interesting -- I just remembered seeing AutoZone's web site list
production percentages. When you go through selecting your vehicle, it
asks year, make then model. The Sentra then prompts for 1.6 or 2.0L
engine. It shows percentages of each powertrain. I just punched
through 1991 - 94 and it says:
Year 1.6 2.0
1991 93% 7%
1992 95 5
1993 96 4
1994 99 1
That would match the new-car hype the SE-R had upon arrival, and it
tapering off as other hot cars were finally introduced as the 90s wore on.
Then there are the completely bastard "Special Edition" 1994 1.6L cars.
Apparently during late 1994 production, they decided to clear out the
factory inventory of B13 parts, and threw all the rules out the window
as to what parts came on which models. I've seen Special Ed' XE Sentras
with SE-R style seats, wings, the GXA tail pipe, SE and GXE wheels, etc.
