More important to Mustang fans than the car's success as the sixth-generation car gradually takes over from the fifth isn't the outright volume - Ford sold more than 9000 Mustangs in the U.S. in March - but the new car's ability to sell twice as often as the Chevrolet Camaro. Cars.com currently shows 84% of Mustang inventory as 2015 models.

In fact, with a 51% year-over-year increase in November 2014, the Dodge Challenger came within 228 units of catching the Camaro, as well.

Yet without an incredible December for the Mustang and a disastrous December for the Camaro, 2014 will go down as the fifth consecutive year in which the Camaro has topped the class by outselling the Mustang and Challenger.

Besides marking the proper arrival of multitudinous sixth-gen Mustangs, November also welcomed the Alfa Romeo 4C and Lexus RC to American shores. Alfa sold their first 24 4Cs; Lexus sold 880 copies of the RC.

^ BMW USA, not GoodCarBadCar, has chosen to combine sales figures of the 1-Series and 2-Series.
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. The BMW 6-Series has been removed from the premium list because we don't use this space as a showcase for sedans (unless automakers release data for high-end sporting models like the Lexus ISF, as Toyota Canada does) and the 6-Series lineup now relies heavily on a sedan variant. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for those brands in November 2014 were 102, 175, 59, 15, and 75 respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but HybridCars.com estimates 1450 November Tesla sales, 14,650 YTD. Maserati sold 1203 cars in November; 11,531 YTD. Bentley reported 323 November sales; 2591 YTD.
