Sporty Car Sales In Canada - September 2014 YTD

2014 Honda CR-Z teal
Despite its own anticipated 11% decline in September 2014, a 24% increase in Chevrolet Camaro sales, and a 99% jump in Dodge Challenger volume, the Ford Mustang easily outsold both its key rivals last month. 292 Mustangs were sold, nearly as many sales as the Camaro and Challenger managed when combined.

Indeed, through the first three-quarters of 2014, the Mustang has outsold the Camaro/Challenger pairing, and with relative ease. GM Canada is on track for the company's best Camaro sales year since 2011.

In a higher price category, the smallest European sports cars were led by the Porsche Boxster in September. Even without its hardtop twin included, the Boxster outsold the Jaguar F-Type range, Audi's TT, and the Mercedes-Benz SLK. Boxster and Cayman combined, the Porsche twins still trailed Porsche's own 911 by seven units.

BMW's broader 4-Series lineup continues to outsell the 1-Series-replacing 2-Series range by more than four-to-one. (The only 2ers in stock at GCBC's local BMW dealership were fitted with automatic transmissions.) Chevrolet Corvette volume was nearly six times stronger in September 2014 than in September 2013. Honda Canada reported their fourth month in 2014 with double-digit CR-Z sales. That only happened twice last year.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank sports cars, coupes, GTs, roadsters, and convertibles any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

^ Mini sales include everything except the Countryman.
* also included in another GCBC segment breakdown
GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you'll see the Audi A5 here and with luxury cars, because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. Clearly GoodCarBadCar is not suggesting that the cars in the two tables above are all direct competitors. Establishing categories among cars as unique as even the Audi TT and Porsche Boxster has never pleased a single reader, so cars have been lumped together so you can simply see how buyers looking for sports cars, roadsters, hot hatches, convertibles, GTs, and wanna-be sports cars spend their money. Greater categorization of cars would only lead to problems that automakers create by not isolating model-specific sales figures: we don't know how many M3s BMW has sold or how many Civics are Si models, for example. The numbers we do have are listed above. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch.
