There are sports cars and sporty cars, and the two are not synonymous, so here we’ll take a look at the top selling sports cars July 2011. Note that these are purely sales numbers, so what consumers choose to buy very much reflects personal taste – as well as availability, price and other factors.

1. 2011 Chevrolet CamaroThe undisputed leader and first-place winner for the month of July in top selling sports cars is the

2011 Chevrolet Camaro. In fact, the Camaro has been kicking the second-place Ford Mustang for the past several months, yet another indication of the erstwhile muscle car war between these two long-time competitors. For July, the Camaro sold 7,671 units. Calendar-year-to-date through July, a total of 56,432 Camaro models were sold. That’s up 4.8 percent over the same period last year.

2. 2011 Ford Mustang – Sales of the 2011 Ford Mustang of 6,805 during the month of July were enough to cinch a solid second

place. For the year through July, sales of the Mustang totaled 45,846. That’s down 3.5 percent year-over-year. Agile, with better fuel economy than last year’s model (with the base engine), the 2011 Ford Mustang sports the same retro styling as 2010, inside and out.

3. 2011 Dodge ChargerPicking up new and returning customers is the all-new 2011 Dodge Charger, selling 5,344 units during

the month of July. For the year-to-date, the Charger has sold 43,185, off 17 percent from year-ago levels. Muscle car performance combined with family car functionality means the 2011 Dodge Charger has a little something for everyone.

During the month, the Challenger sold 3,509 units while for the calendar-year-to-date, the Dodge sports car sold 23,670 units. That marks an increase of 11 percent over the same period in 2010. Challenger boasts retro styling and a more powerful base engine that makes it better prepared to compete against the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.
