Ford Mustang World’s Best-Selling Sports Car Of 2023

The Ford Mustang may be a distinctly American product, but the iconic pony car has also long been sold in other parts of the world, too – where it’s arguably every bit as popular. In fact, the Ford Mustang has earned the title of being not only the world’s best-selling sports coupe, but also, the world’s best-selling sports car of any kind numerous times over the past few years, which isn’t terribly surprising. Now, as we celebrate 60 years of the Ford Mustang and the debut of the all-new S650 generation model for 2024, we can also officially say that the legendary model was once again the world’s best-selling sports car in 2023, too.

This news comes to us via new data from S&P Global Mobility, which determined that the Ford Mustang remained the best-selling sports car across the entire globe based on registration data last year – a title it has now held for more than 10 years. In 2023, over 59,000 customers took delivery of a Mustang in places like the U.S., China, Europe, Australia, and South America, adding to the nearly one million pony cars Ford has delivered over the past decade.

“We’ve sold more Mustangs in our history than the population of major cities like Chicago, London, or Seoul,” said Jeff Marentic, General Manager, North America/Global Truck, Family, and Enthusiast Vehicles. “As we get set to celebrate Mustang’s 60th anniversary, that same passion and excitement continues with our seventh-generation Mustang, now headed to customers in 85 markets around the world.”

As Ford Authority previously reported, The Blue Oval has several celebrations lined up to mark 60 years since the Ford Mustang debuted at the 1964 New York Auto Show, ranging from a special upcoming event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway to a traveling road show of sorts called “Mustang Unleashed.”

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
