Sporty Car Sales In America - August 2016 YTD

13 years ago, the Bentley Continental GT was the first Bentley fully developed in the era of Volkswagen ownership. Bentley was revolutionized. Volume exploded thanks to the "affordable" Bentley.

Bentley sold 106 such cars in August 2016, a modest 8% downturn. But Bentley has since been revolutionized again. 56% of the Bentleys sold in the United States in August 2016 were Bentaygas. The Bentayga is Bentley's latest new vehicle introduction, an SUV with an ungainly design but mountains of appeal to consumers who need something more than a Land Rover Range Rover Autobiography.

But never fear, enthusiast of the great exotic GT car. There were 112 Mercedes-AMG GTs sold in August, 96 Audi R8s, 99 Maserati GranTurismos, and 88 Nissan GT-Rs.

The Wall Street Journal also reported 249 sales of Ferraris in August along with 79 Lamborghinis. In other words, there are still plenty of buyers for high-dollar sports cars.

There are also plenty of buyers for low-dollar sporting cars, too. Yes, U.S. sales of the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and far more popular Ford Mustang are falling. But with 174,047 sales through the first eight months of 2016, this trio accounts for 4% of the U.S. car market.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto 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 sports cars, coupes, and GTs any which way you like. Mobile users can thumb across tables for full-width access.
