Sporty Car Sales In Canada – November 2016 YTD


2016 Porsche 911 Turbo S blue

Despite a sharp 41% drop, the Ford Mustang still easily outsold both of its rivals in Canada in November 2016. Mustang sales have risen through much of 2016 while sales of the newer, fresher Chevrolet Camaro fell flat. Dodge Challenger sales are expected to rise to an all-time annual high by year’s end.

The Audi TT continued its steady improvement in November 2016, rising 17%, year-over-year. TT sales have more than doubled, year-over-year, and are on track to reach an eight-year high in 2016.

After rising 134% through the first-half of 2016, sales of the Mazda MX-5 Miata have fallen 22% since its fraternal twin, the Fiat 124 Spider, arrived in July. Total sales of the two roadsters are up 50% since July.

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.
