Immediately, this corporate jet set numerous in-class records for time-to-climb and overall speed. A final total of 202 Citation IIIs were produced before the discontinuation in 1992.
Cessna attempted to make more money with the Citation VI by building a more standardized avionics package and cabin interior. Manufacturers, oftentimes attempt to build on prior success by offering fewer features for the same price. This economy version of the Citation III wasn't very popular. The line was discontinued in 1995 after only 39 aircraft were made.
Developed at the same time as the Citation VI, the Citation VII was manufactured with more powerful engines that provided faster speeds. This model could also operate in higher altitude environments during hotter weather. Production began in 1991 and was completed in 2000 with 119 aircraft being made.
