New Ford Mustang outsells Audi TT and Porsche 911 in Germany

Ford Mustang 2016 Auto Expo

A few units of the Mustang have already landed in India ahead of the launch before festive season.

The new Ford Mustang has achieved a feat that the Americans can be proud of. The latest iteration of the American pony car just managed to outsell the popular Audi TT and Porsche 911 at their home turf, Germany, in March 2016. This outcome is definitely not going to be taken lightly by Audi and Porsche.

According to data furnished by¬†German Federal Motor Transport Authority, the Mustang clocked 780 units in Germany last month as against the TT’s tally of 708 units and the 911’s 752 units. The Mustang’s arch nemesis, the Chevrolet Camaro, could only manage a measly 18 units.

The new Ford Mustang is also availale in RHD configruation for the first time in history.

Delighted by the Mustang’s sales performance, Wolfgang Kopplin, MD of Ford Germany, said:

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.

The new Mustang not only proved to be popular in Germany but has also took other important markets by storm as well. In its 5 decades of existence, this is the first time the iconic car is available in RHD configuration. It already commands a huge waiting period in the UK and Australia.

    They could have sold plenty of the outgoing Mustang model in Australia and the UK if they’d made it in RHD. Hardly surprising it is doing well in Germany and outsold the Audi TT (it’s less expensive than the TT and people are probably getting bored with it) and the cheapest Porsche 911 is about twice the price of a Mustang GT. The Mustang is well suited to Australian driving conditions and for years and years enthusiasts there have paid big money for RHD conversions. Ford has finally woken up!
