^this^. The analyst's theme before the 5c release was the 5c would soar and "save" Apple. Then the 5s outsold the 5c: thus the 5c, not being the savior of Apple, was a "flop". And that was and remains, silly.
That is to be expected, the 4s has been available for two entire years beyond the 5c, plus there's the identical looking 4 available for another year beyond that. Compared to a few months of 5c availability?

Besides which not everyone needs or would like to pay for 64+ GB. So there's another choice: if it's not for you there's always the option of not buying it right?
Further fine-tuning an entry level offering.   Reasonable.   Still wish it came in gray....
Not "drive" at all (and I never used the words "JUST to drive" so that's simply your distortion right?): the 5c had a place in the product lineup and it wasn't to be the premier selling phone for Apple, just a China Mobile compatible "5" which would, as has been Apple's custom, taking over that second tier slot, like the 4 did for the 4s and the 4s did for the 5: the need to make the two top phones CM compatible opened the window to a different design and they took it......
