Sporty Car Sales In Canada - July 2015 YTD

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata red
Mazda's fourth-generation MX-5 Miata is now trickling into dealers. This presents Mazda Canada with the opportunity to greatly increase Miata sales in the summer of 2015. July 2015's 20% increase, however, translates to only 13 extra MX-5 sales.

August, we hope, will show greater supply and demand for the iconic sports car. In the United States, more than 1100 MX-5s were sold in July, the best month for U.S. MX-5 Miata sales since April 2009.

In the meantime, relatively uncommon Japanese coupes like like the Nissan 370Z, Subaru BRZ, and Lexus RC all sold more often than the little Mazda. 

As for truly popular two-doors, that's an arena wholly dominated by the Ford Mustang in Canada. Year-over-year, Mustang sales jumped 31% to 708 units in July 2015, more than the Camaro, Challenger, Corvette, and 370Z 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 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.
