Porsche 911 sales jumped 30% to 95 units in March 2015, greater than the combined total of the Audi R8, Cadillac ELR, Dodge Viper, Jaguar XK, Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, and Nissan GT-R. Far greater.

One section of Canada’s sports car market could change significantly over the coming months. Nissan Canada has announced a $10,000 price cut for the 370Z, dropping the base MSRP below $30,000, on par with the Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

^ 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 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.
