So far I have mostly used the annual catalogue of the Swiss AUTOMOBIL-REVUE if I needed information on cars in production of a specific year. Recently I discovered the annual books by QUATTRORUOTE of Italy. Similar to the series of Automobil-Revue, they also have the claim to cover global production. Nevertheless, the focus is not quite the same and you will find some different brands. They are a great addition to my collection of Automobil-Revue catalogues. I can warmly recommend them!
