It’s Ford Mustang Day: The Mustang Is the World’s Best-Selling Sports Car

The Ford Mustang continues to rule to sports car categories as it yet again wins the title of best-seller.

  • For the 5th year in a row, the Mustang is the world’s best-selling sports coupe.

  • The current Mustang lineup is loaded with power and performance.

  • Six consecutive generations, over 10 million sold since 1964; The Ford Mustang is popular.

  • The Mustang is North America’s best-selling sports car of the last 50 years.


Do you know what the Ford Mustang’s main flaw is? It’s simple: It’s extremely popular. The fact that it is so common is directly related to the fact that it is really good. The latest 6th generation Ford Mustang is perhaps the best-sorted ever, and most appreciated, as proven by the more than 633,000 sold since it arrived in 2015.

There truly is a Ford Mustang for everyone in 2020. The base Mustang EcoBoost is plenty powerful while the GT models scream performance – and that’s without the optional Performance Pack. From here, it gets better. Our absolute favorite Mustang BULLITT (although not available for much longer) blends style and power in a sleek package. For track-day enthusiasts, the Mustang Shelby GT350 (available Handling Pack and GT350R) will make any driver feel like a hero. And finally, the grand-daddy of them all, the GT500 pounds pavement and the competition with 760-horsepower.

A New Ford Mustang Mach 1 Is Coming Next Year

“We’re proud of our growing Mustang stable and performance variants,” said Jim Farley, chief operating officer, Ford Motor Company. “From Sweden to Shanghai, more and more driving enthusiasts are enjoying the feeling of freedom and the American open road in these new Mustangs. We are honored to serve our owners, enthusiasts and fans for 56 years and counting.”

The Ford Mustang is the only continuously built pony car and the only one not constantly threatened by extinction.
