Ford Mustang is the Best-Selling Sports Car in Germany
America, F*#ck Yeah! That’s exactly what Ford employees are chanting due to recent news out of Germany, stating that the Blue Oval’s pony car outsold every sports car in the month of March.
According to statistics from the German Federal Motor Transport Authority, KBA, the Ford Mustang sold 780 units, which was far more than any other domestic or imported car in Germany. More importantly, it beat home-court royalty—the Porsche 911 by 28 units in March, and smoked its countryman—the Chevy Camaro by an astronomical 734 units.
Granted, Chevrolet does not have any dealerships in Germany, but Porsche does, and the Mustang still beat them. Could this be a sign for the resurgence of the Mustang as a global vehicle? Absolutely. Not too long ago, the Europeans (and most of the world) wrote-off the Mustang as a lazy and heavy American that could only go fast on a straight line, but that story is very different nowadays, and this report proves it.
In case you’re wondering, the V8-powered Mustang GT is the best-selling of the two, despite it starting at approximately $50,000 dollars, compared to $32,000 in the United States.
Eat it, Porsche!
