Top sports cars sold in 2019

Let’s face it, when the sports-car bubble bursts, it bursts hard – real hard. You only need to look back to 2019 to get the latest example of that fact, with Australian sales down a massive 20.8 per cent.

Indeed, the entire sports-car segment relies upon new releases to keep it ticking over every year, and there weren’t many of them to keep it buoyant in a tough 2019.

The new-generation Toyota Supra and Porsche 911 were more the most notable debutants, while a series of small model-year updates were found beyond them.

That said, 14,712 new sports cars were sold Down Under last year, which is still a lot of metal. And one particular model accounted for a whopping 26.8 per cent of the entire segment’s sales by itself. No prizes for guessing which one that was (read: Ford Mustang).

Either way, read on for a segment-by-segment breakdown of Australia’s most popular new sports cars of 2019.
