To what degree is this a massive achievement? Consider the sales figures of the S-Class's compatriots. Audi sells an average of 422 A8s per month. BMW, admittedly in the final year of the current 7-Series, sells fewer than 800 copies of that car each month. Porsche's Panamera attracts fewer buyers than the aforementioned A8.

Even cars which stretch out of the lower category – Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz's CLS – attracted 4839 fewer buyers, combined, than the S-Class over the first eight months of 2015. 

The Lexus LS, a former top seller among large luxury limos, is down 9% to only 4864 units in 2015, barely more than one-third the S-Class's total.

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, right? This explains why you'll see the the A7 and CLS here but also with midsize 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. 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 the first eight months of 2015 were 680, 1416, 504, 100, and 760, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but HybridCars.com estimates 1600 August Tesla sales, 15,300 YTD.
