Our Take On The Sporty Cars Sales Numbers

It’s important to not that Ford and GM numbers are not included here. This impacts the American Muscle Car category.

With that said, Sporty Car sales in the U.S. weren’t the greatest in February. The American Muscle Car segment was represented only by the Dodge Challenger, which saw a drop in sales of over 40 percent when compared to last year.

The Euro Sports Car and Misc. Sports Car categories also saw declines. The Euro Sports Car segment was down about 140 units. The best seller was the Jaguar F-Type and it was one of the few models that saw an increase in sales.

The Misc. Sports Car segment saw a roughly 1,700 unit decline. Leading the way in that category was the Subaru Impreza WRX, though it saw a double-digit decline in sales. The only car that saw more sales than this time last year was the Lexus RC.

The Premium Sports Car segment was the outlier here. It saw a rise in overall sales by almost 250 units. The Porsche 911 led the way in terms of sales. It saw an almost 28 percent rise in sales for the month when compared to last year. The highest percentage increase was the Audi R8 with an 800 percent rise in sales over this time last year.

The segment wasn’t without sales declines, though. The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, Lexus LC, and Nissan GT-R all saw sales declines, many of which were well into the double digits percentages.

The YTD numbers mirrored the monthly ones. This isn’t much of a surprise considering we’re only a little ways into 2019.
