Sporty Car Sales In Canada – November 2014 YTD


2015 Mini Cooper S

The Dodge Challenger outsold Chevrolet’s Camaro during an improved month for Detroit muscle cars in Canada in November 2014. But it was November, and even the Challenger’s 110% year-over-year increase and the Ford Mustang’s 57% jump produced relatively low numbers. 

Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – November 2014 YTD
• Canada Car Sales Rankings By Model – November 2014 YTD

50% of the Mustangs sold by Ford Canada this year were delivered in the second-quarter. Only 5% of the Mustangs sold left dealers in November.

All three cars were outsold by different variations on the sporting theme. Mini’s hot little Cooper family was up 71% to 467 units. Although tame, in straight-line terms, in base form, the Mini doesn’t hide its athletic intentions. As a Cooper S, it’ll deliver you to your destination awfully quickly, as well. BMW sold 307 copies of the 4-Series in November, as well, enough to outperform the Mustang and its cohorts.

The biggest sports car story in 2014, new Mustang and new supercars aside, may be the continued success of the Jaguar F-Type. 46 more were sold in Canada in November, more than double the number achieved by the Porsche Boxster; more than the Boxster and Cayman and Mercedes-Benz SLK and BMW Z4 combined.

^ 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.
