Sporty Car Sales In America – June 2017


Sales of the Ford Mustang fell for the third consecutive month in June 2017, with sales of rival the Dodge Challenger outstripping it for the first time.

Audi’s A5 had its best ever month of US sales in 2017, going from strength to strength on the back of an all-new model.

The Mazda Miata shows signs of sales levelling out – after two excellent months in April and May the little convertible sports car fell back by almost 200 units against May’s sales, but still manages to move over 1,000 units.

^ 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. ANDC estimates say sales for Aston Martin and Lotus in the first three months of 2017 were ___, respectively. Figures through the first three months of 2017 for Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Rolls-Royce were:
