Ford reported 105,932 Mustang sales in 2016. Last year aside – 2015 was the first year for the hyped sixth-gen Mustang – that was the highest total since 2007.

The bigger story throughout the year, however, was GM’s inability to sell the newer, sixth-gen Camaro in numbers that resembled the fifth-gen Camaro’s output. At least until incentives ramped up in the final third of the year.
After outselling the Mustang in five consecutive years and predictably being outsold by the Mustang in 2015, the Camaro came up short again in 2016. 33,227 sales short.

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 Aston Martin and Lotus in 2016 were 1032 an 168, respectively.
