Cape Town - The Ford Mustang has maintained its status as South Africa’s top selling sports car during June 2017, with 86 units sold.

Ford’s pony car sold nearly double the units of second place rival Porsche 911 (47 units). Another Porsche, the 718 Cayman/Boxster, sold the third most units - 16 models locally.

The middle order

Along with the three front runners, the Jaguar F-Type was the only other sports car in SA to register double digit figures with 12 models sold.

Ferrari has three of its models in the top 9 list though the newest edition to the range, the GTC4Lusso, has not yet been added.

Audi and Nissan are the two other manufacturers that have made the top 10 list the list with their respective sports cars: the R8 and GT-R.
