Sporty Car Sales In America - April 2016 YTD

2016 Buick Cascada
Despite a modest 3% year-over-year decline, the Ford Mustang was still, by far and away, the most popular sporting car in America in April 2016.

Chevrolet's new Camaro, up 8% compared with April 2015, trailed the Mustang by 5269 units. Through the first one-third of 2016, the Camaro and Dodge Challenger combined for 48,489 U.S. sales.

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. The BMW 6-Series has been removed from the premium list because we don't use this space as a showcase for sedans (unless automakers release data for high-end sporting models like the Lexus ISF, as Toyota Canada does) and the 6-Series lineup now relies heavily on a sedan variant. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch. 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 Aston Martin and Lotus in the first four months of 2016 were 344 and 56, respectively. Figures through the first four months of 2016: Ferrari (733), Lamborghini (342), and Rolls-Royce (301).
