With 11,719 June sales, Ford’s U.S. Mustang sales figures have now reached five digits in each of the last four months, the kinds of figures Ford managed to put up with its muscle car only three times in the previous five years.
The Mustang now routinely achieves mainstream-like figures. Year-to-date, through the first-half of 2015, the Mustang is America’s 16th-best-selling car, ahead of the Kia Soul, Volkswagen Jetta, Chevrolet Impala, Toyota Prius, and Mazda 3.
When it comes to sporting cars, it’s abundantly obvious that Americans prefer American horsepower. Beyond the fact that Mustang sales rose 54% to 11,719 units in June, the Dodge Challenger jumped 56% to 6845 units, the Chevrolet Camaro was up 12% to 8611 units, and Chevrolet also sold 2807 Corvettes, a 3% year-over-year increase.

The biggest numbers Europe has to offer come from the Jaguar F-Type (451), Porsche 911 (813), BMW 2-Series (1067), and Volkswagen Golf GTI (1820). BMW sold 6625 copies of the 4-Series in June, but it’s worth noting that the 4-Series takes into account a broad 4-door range via the 4-Series Gran Coupe.
You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. 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, and GTs any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.
Source: Automakers & ANDC * indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown ^ BMW USA, not GoodCarBadCar, has chosen to combine sales figures of the 1-Series and 2-Series. 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. The BMW 6-Series has been removed from the premium list because we don’t use this space as a showcase for sedans (unless automakers release data for high-end sporting models like the Lexus ISF, as Toyota Canada does) and the 6-Series lineup now relies heavily on a sedan variant. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. estimates say sales for those brands through the first-half of 2015 were 510, 1062, 378, 74, and 570, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn’t release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but HybridCars.com estimates 2800 June Tesla sales, 11,900 YTD.
