Ford Mustang skips ahead of Jaguar, BMW and Porsche sports models

The Ford Mustang is proving to be the sales success that Ford had hoped it to be with confirmation that even in the UK the two-door sports model is overwhelmingly popular.

Sales data just released in the UK shows the Ford Mustang achieved 2,317 sales so far this year and that’s more than consistently popular sports models in the 250PS+ (183kW) category like the Jaguar F-TYPE and Porsche 911.

While Ford in the UK has taken more than 4,000 orders for the Mustang with many owners still waiting for their car to arrive from the US.

  • Ford Mustang (2,317)
