Sporty Car Sales In America - June 2016 YTD

2017 Fiat 124 Spider
U.S. sales of Detroit's still popular trio of muscle cars took a 26% dive in June 2016, a sharp decline caused by all three models, but the Chevrolet Camaro most especially.

Camaro sales plunged 42%, a loss of 3642 units. The Camaro's lack of sales momentum is a topic we discussed a month ago and delved into more deeply on TTAC a couple of weeks ago. Regardless of the reasons for its rapid decline, June marked a 19-month low for the Camaro.

Chevrolet averaged 8235 June Camaro sales over the previous five years. Mustang sales were almost twice as high in June 2016.

June also hosted the arrival new sports cars from Fiat and Acura. Incidentally, the Japanese-branded second-generation Acura NSX is very much an American Honda creation, not only in design but in assembly.

The Fiat 124 Spider, on the other hand, wears an Italian suit but takes its underpinnings from the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata. 

June sales were inconsequential for both. IHS estimates Fiat USA will sell 500 124 Spiders per month. 

Mazda currently sells roughly 900 MX-5s per month, down from 1400 in 2006.

^ BMW USA, not GoodCarBadCar, has chosen to combine sales figures of the 1-Series and 2-Series.
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.
