Ford Canada sold more Mustangs in May 2013 than in the previous three months combined, thereby enabling a muscle car victory which saw the Mustang outsell the combined efforts of the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, Hyundai Genesis Coupe, Nissan 370Z, Chevrolet Corvette, and Dodge Viper. With 200 units to spare.
Porsche and Mercedes-Benz sold an equal number of Boxsters and SLK roadsters in Canada in May. Audi’s TT was only two sales back. Porsche sold 37 Caymans, only twelve fewer than Porsche managed with the Boxster. BMW Z4 sales, down 41.5% this year, fell 9% to just 29 units in May.
Fiat 500 sales were 85% stronger than sales of the Mini Cooper, by which we mean every Mini except for the Countryman. (BMW Canada doesn’t break down Mini data the way BMW USA does. Fiat USA, on the other hand, doesn’t break down 500 volume the way Fiat Canada does.)
Porsche 911 sales dropped sharply in May but remain higher through the first five months of 2013 than in the same period of last year. The 911 only outsold the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class by seven units last month.
You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian 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 sporty cars 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 ^ 500 breakdown by variant. Mini sales include everything except the Countryman. GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you’ll see the 6-Series listed here and with large luxury sedans and the Audi A5 here and with luxury cars, because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. Clearly GoodCarBadCar is not suggesting that the cars in the two 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. GoodCarBadCar is always open to hearing about the ways you would break down segments, so feel free to get in touch.
