Our Take On The Sporty Cars Sales Numbers

Consumers in the USA bought 7.3% fewer sporty cars this January than last overall.

A portion of the drop in sales comes from the Euro sports cars sub-segment, where only the Porsche Boxster managed year-on-year growth. Voluminous players here posted significant drops; the Audi TT down 35.6%, the Mercedes0Benz SLC down 29.2%, the Porsche Cayman down 16.2%.

The American Muscle trio also sold fewer vehicles than last year, with 314 fewer Mustangs and 721 fewer Chevrolet Camaros being sold in January to culminate in a 8.5% drop in this sub-segment.

The declines from last January to this one in muscle car sales are not as steep as the overall total decline in this market seen through calendar year 2017, though this month’s drops are on the back of a 36% decline year-on-year for January 2016 to January 2015’s totals, indicating a continuing drop in demand.
