I found this chart, which is for a study done of cats in England. I imagine that cat longevity in other countries is similar.

The chart shows a definite bell curve centered around 16 to 17 years. The chart is non-zero all the way out to 27 years though.

Poking around elsewhere, it seems that the record goes to a cat named Creme Puff, who lived to the remarkable age of 38.
