Best Selling Sporty Cars in America for January 2019
Here you will find the Sporty car sales leaders in the United States for January 2019. Each month we compile the Sporty car model sales data and reports for North American markets and analyze it to create the best selling list below.
It’s important to note that Ford and GM both report quarterly, so the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette aren’t represented here. It will be interesting to see how those models compare to the others on sale.
Otherwise, most sporty cars got off to a slow start in 2019. The lone American muscle car we do have sales data for, the Dodge Challenger, was down over five percent when compared to last year.
Euro sports cars also had a poor showing. All models were down when compared to last year, except the BMW 8-Series which is new for 2019 and without last year sales to go up against.
In the Premium sports cars segment, the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 saw significant increases in sales, but every other notable model saw drops in sales when compared with last year. Despite this, the total for the month once you add all sales up was higher than last year.
The same can be said for the Misc. sports cars segment. There were only three notable sales increases, with six other models seeing sales declines. However, sales for that segment of the market were up overall, if only slightly.
