Sales were down last year in the U.S., but it still leads the global two-door charge.
55 years ago today, Ford thrust a new car upon the motoring public and it sort-of stuck around. Not only that, the enduring Ford Mustang is currently the best-selling sports coupe in the entire world. In fact, Ford says it’s been the best-selling sports coupe for four years now.
“We broke the mold when Ford launched the Mustang 55 years ago,” said Jim Farley, Ford president for global markets. “Nothing says freedom, the wind in your hair and the joy of driving like Mustang; it’s an icon. The roar of its V8 on a spring day, there’s nothing better. No wonder it’s the most popular sports coupe in the world.” – according to Motor1.com
Ford says 113,066 units were sold around the world in 2018, which represented just the slightest of increases from the previous year. The launch of a new Bullitt is credited for some of that success.
