Sporty Car Sales In Canada - December 2015 And 2015 Year End

2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat green
Ford Canada sold more Mustangs in calendar year 2015 than at any time since 2007, when the Mustang was not tested by the availability of a Chevrolet Camaro or a Dodge Challenger.

The arrival of the sixth-gen Mustang late in 2014 boosted sales by 24% in 2015 to 6933 units. Together, the sliding Chevrolet Camaro (which is being replaced in showrooms as we speak) and the Dodge Challenger (which jumped 64% to a five-year high) generated 5337 sales. Which is quite a bit less than the Mustang mustered.

Outside of these vehicles, Canadian sports car totals are fairly low. The driving season is not particularly lengthy in most parts of the country when it comes to typically garaged vehicles like the Porsche Boxster and Audi R8. There were nevertheless highlights from diverse vehicles.

^ 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.
