In the 47 years Ford Motor Motor Company has been selling the Ford Mustang only two other times have they ever had a lower month of sales. This past January marks the third lowest monthly sales total for the Ford Mustang ever. January 2011 joins February and January of 2009 as the lowest monthly sales total ever in the 47 year history of the Ford Mustang. Whats even more shocking is they are posting these kinds of numbers with arguably the best Ford Mustang ever built being offered to the public.
GM’s Camaro is not fairing much better with a January sales total of 4,763 but keep in mind they are only offering coupes. The 2011 Camaro convertible began production this month and should be hitting dealers in February so thier monthly sales numbers will only climb.
What does the future hold for the Mustang? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
