Our Take On The Sporty Cars Sales Numbers

Mustang sales received a shot in the arm in May after a difficult April, with a 10.7% year-on-year increase for the muscle car keeping it ahead of the only one of its rivals to report figures – the Dodge Challenger.

Challenger sales also increased, but far more marginally for May than for the Mustang.

The split of hard-top Cayman to soft-top Boxster in the Porsche lineup in May was around 3:2 in favour of the Cayman, with the 718 lineup as a whole posting a 31.8% year-on-year increase after the Cayman doubled its figures on last May. Cayman was the only individual nameplate to have sold more examples in 2018 than 2017 to the end of May.

911 sales bolstered Porsche’s strong May, with the sports car maker revelling in its second month of 5k+ sales in the USA in a row.

Several others in the premium sports car chart saw increases in deliveries; compatriots to Porsche from Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi saw steep increases in sales, as did the Nissan GT-R.

Lexus’ LC saw sales fall for a second consecutive month in May.
