April is Mustang’s 56th birthday with Ford now claiming two global sales crowns: world’s best-selling sports car and a fifth straight best-selling sports coupe title. Mustang, in Ford’s not Corvette’s view, is also America’s best-selling sports car of the last 50 years.

Mustang sold 102,090 units, according to the most recent new vehicle registration data from IHS Markit, making it the best-selling sports car in the world in 2019. During this period, Mustang sales in Germany increased 33%, in Poland sales rose by nearly 50%, and in France, they nearly doubled from laughably small bases.

The year 2019 also marks the fifth consecutive year that Mustang was the best-selling sports coupe in the world. Sports coupes, as defined by IHS Markit, include two-door and convertible models.

With as many as 12 enthusiast models available globally, Ford offers newish Mustang variants including EcoBoost and GT models each with two Performance Pack options, Mustang BULLITT, Mustang Shelby GT350 and available Handling Pack, Shelby GT350R, plus Shelby GT500 with Handling Pack and Carbon Fiber Track Pack options.
