The Ford Mustang has been an iconic fixture of the sports car world for decades now and it’s been updated to ensure that it’s modern as well as classic. Here at your local Ford dealership, we know firsthand how popular it is but last month, IHS Automotive released some numbers proving the muscle car’s popularity. In 2015, the Ford Mustang Coupe sold about 110,000 units worldwide, making it the only sports coupe to sell more than 100,000 units that year.

These impressive sales mark the Ford Mustang as the best-selling sports coupe in its first year being sold globally. And when you add in the 30,000 or so Ford Mustang Convertible units that were sold in 2015, the sales numbers for the beloved sports car become even more impressive. With more of the models set to be delivered overseas, particularly the models equipped with the globally popular V8 engine, it seems likely that the sales figures for the Ford Mustang will grow even more in 2016. But it’s not just the international markets that love this car – the March sales for the Ford Mustang in the United States outperformed the combined sales of two competitors. U.S. and international drivers are sending a clear message: when it comes to sports cars, they want only the best.
