Like the Camaro, Ford Mustang sales continue to slide, as well, albeit at a slower rate and from a higher point. Mustang sales dropped 17% in February, but with 8298 units, the Mustang was still selling at a rate of nearly two-to-one compared with the Camaro.
In just the second year-over-year Buick Cascada comparison, sales jumped 28% to 632 units.

Mazda MX-5 Miata sales climbed to an 18-month high in February 2017 even as Fiat added 302 sales of the 124 Spider, essentially a Miata at its core.
Volkswagen last month saw performance Golf sales skyrocket, as well, with the Golf R jumping 70% and the GTI up 14% to 1864 units.
Combined, the Subaru WRX/STI nevertheless outsold the Golf GTI/R by 137 units.
A number of high-end machines also sold distinctly more often in February 2017 than in February 2016. U.S. sales of the Audi R8, Bentley Continental GT, BMW i8, Dodge Viper, Maserati GranTurismo, Nissan GT-R, and Porsche 911 jumped 622%, 56%, 7%, 23%, 40%, 83%, and 11%, respectively.

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 Aston Martin and Lotus in the first two months of 2017 were 174 and 30, respectively. Figures through the first two months of 2017 for Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Rolls-Royce: 470, 123, and 245, respectively.
