Canada sports car sales chart January 2012

Canada’s sporty car race started out with a whimper in January 2012. It isn’t the best time of year to buy, for example, a Porsche Boxster – particularly when Boxster inventory is paltry.

Regardless, you can find data on low-end and high-end sporting automobiles after the jump. Both of the charts can  be expanded with a click. Find the monthy and yearly sales data for any of these models and all other nameplates currently on sale, from minivans to sports cars, by accessing the dropdown menu at the top right of this page.

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.
