This Is The 320-HP 1-Series Europeans Are Buying.
The M135i Is Priced Like A 328i.
After a May surge, Ford dealers couldn’t have had nearly as many Mustangs to sell in June 2013. Year-over-year, sales fell 23%. From May, June Mustang volume slid 48%.
The Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and Dodge Challenger accounted for 0.65% of the Canadian auto industry’s first-half volume in 2013. The same three cars are much more popular in their home market. (Mind you, the Camaro and Challenger are assembled in Canada.) The trio accounts for 1.48% of the U.S. market’s 2013 sales.

Jaguar F-Type sales shot up to 47 units in June, the newest Jag’s second month on sale in Canada. Audi didn’t sell that many TTs, nor did Porsche sell that many Caymans. BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche did sell more Z4s, SLKs, Boxsters, and 911s. But not many more.
Subaru reported its best BRZ sales month yet. Its twin, the Scion FR-S, was down 47% in June, but it’s still a much more common product than the BRZ.
You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank sports cars, muscle cars, roadsters, and coupes any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.
* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown ^ 500 breakdown by variant. Mini sales include everything except the Countryman. 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, right? This explains why you’ll see the 6-Series listed here and with large luxury sedans and 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 two 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.
