The Ford Mustang Was The Best-Selling Sportscar In Germany In March

The 2016 Ford Mustang outsold all other sports coupes in Germany last month, becoming the best-selling sportscar in the country through March.

That’s right; the country that gave us Porsche, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz bought more units of the Ford Mustang than they did any other sports coupe on the market.

“Germans have fallen in love with the Mustang. Driving a Mustang GT on the Autobahn is a one of a kind experience for people who love cars,” said Ford Germany Managing Director Wolfgang Kopplin.

According to data from Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA) – the German Federal Motor Transport Authority – the German public bought 780 units of the Ford Mustang in March. The Porsche 911 was a close second with 752 units, while the Audi TT was a more distant third with 708 unit sales. It’s not all about price, either; a base 911 Carrera may cost roughly twice as much as a Ford Mustang GT, but the all-wheel drive Audi TT Quattro costs some €2,550 ($2,907 US) less, according to Autoblog.

We’ll be eagerly awaiting next month’s German sales results to see if the 2016 Ford Mustang continues its trend as the top-selling sports coupe in the country.
