Canadian sales of the Ford Mustang shot up to 1401 units in May 2015, enough to make the Mustang Canada’s 15th-best-selling car last month.
The Mustang’s rivals from Chevrolet and Dodge both posted improvements, as well. And despite losing out to the Chevy in May, the refreshed Challenger has outsold the aged Camaro by 147 units so far this year. The Mustang outsells them both combined.
Yet while spring is kind to Detroit muscle, it wasn’t quite so kind to many European sports cars, or at least not as kind as May 2014 was. The list of nameplates in decline is lengthy: TT, Z4, SLK, Cayman, R8, XK, SL-Class.
On the flip side, Porsche Canada sold 114 911s in May, just the third time in the last 36 months that the 911 has crested the 100-unit mark.

May also welcomed the new SLS AMG-replacing Mercedes-Benz to Canada. The AMG GT generated 34 sales in its first month on the market.
The best month in the SLS AMG’s history, April 2011, resulted in only 28 sales.

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.
