But the Chevrolet Camaro did attract more American buyers in September than the Mustang. And it only took a massive increase in incentives to make it happen. Oh, and a massive drop in Mustang sales.

U.S. sales of the Audi TT continue to soar. A new Infiniti Q60 produced the best month for the lone Infiniti coupe since December 2014. The Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R both reported huge year-over-year improvements.
But in the United States, the home market for Detroit muscle, the sales figures achieved by anything other than the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and Ford Mustang pale in comparison.

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 once did) 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.
