Sporty Car Sales In Canada – November 2015 YTD


2015 Porsche Cayman GTS

Ford Canada reported its ninth consecutive year-over-year Mustang monthly sales increase in November 2015 with a 77% surge to 415 units, incidentally 77% more sales than the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger managed combined.

This domination is displayed despite the Camaro’s stirring 90% year-over-year increase during the first month of (limited) sixth-gen Camaro availability.

Canada Car Sales Rankings By Model – November 2015 YTD

2015 is only 11-months-old, but already Ford Canada has sold more Mustangs in 2015 than in any of the previous seve calendar years.

In the Canadian auto sphere, there’s nothing sporting that comes even remotely close. BMW sold nearly as many copies of the 4-Series in November – though not year-to-date – but the 4-Series now features a somewhat conventional four-door, which will likely cause us to remove the 4-Series from this space in 2016.

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.
