2009 YEAR END SALES STATS FROM DIRECT RIVALS IN CANADA - 370Z vs RX-8, 911 vs R8 & MORE

Direct competitors in the automotive arena are often manufactured by the same company. For instance, the now-defunct Pontiac G5 and the Chevrolet Cobalt were both relatively strong sellers in Canada during the twelve months of 2009. Yet the profit earned as a result of those two cars goes back to the same conglomerate, General Motors. Now, even the cash earned from a sale of a Porsche Boxster and Audi TT is wired through to Volkswagen's account.

Nonetheless, we've separated each and every model for comparison's sake. The categories listed below skip over potential cross-shopped vehicles and strike right at the heart of the matter: Civic vs. Corolla, Z4 vs. SLK, Fit vs. Yaris.... and a whole bunch more. These are Sales Stats from Canada's 2009 Year End figures. Click here for a similar story from south of the border.
