Ford Canada and their buyers believe the time to buy a Mustang is in May. Of thw 12,728 new Mustangs registered in Canada since the beginning of 2012, 29% were sold during the three May periods, equal to just 10% of the time.

The Mustang owned 62.6% of its three-car muscle car class in May 2014, 52.9% year-to-date. The fact that a new Mustang is on its way did not deter buyers from selecting the current car.
Now with two distinct bodystyles, the Jaguar F-Type shot up to its highest Canadian sales level yet and outsold the Audi TT, BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLK, and both small Porsches (though the Boxster and Cayman easily combined to outsell the F-Type.)
Scion FR-S sales have now decreased on a year-over-year basis in seven consecutive months. Subaru BRZ volume has increased in nine of the last twelve months.
You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto 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, coupes, GTs, and hot hatches any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.
Source: Automakers & ANDC ^ Mini sales include everything except the Countryman. * also included in another GCBC segment breakdown 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 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.
