B ei 327,693 new registrations in June 2017 the sports car segment has only a negligibly small share of 1.1 percent and even ranks just below the share of mobile homes. And the segment doesn't really want to boom in the course of 2017 either. Just 3,577 sports car models received a license plate for the first time in the month under review, and only 22,203 sports cars between January and June.

Porsche 911 asserts itself in first place

The Porsche 911 took part in the month under review 713 newly registered models mark the top in sports cars. However, the 911 has to deal with a decrease in registrations of 24.1 percent compared to June 2016. In a half-year comparison, the Porsche also remains in pole position. He has 4,211 registrations here, a decrease of 10.7 percent in the first half of 2016.

The Mercedes E-Class Coupé came in second in June. The statisticians of the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Flensburg recorded 538 models and an increase of 19.8 percent compared to the same month last year. No wonder the model has been on the market for a few weeks. In the overall statistics for 2017, the E-Class Coupé cannot yet benefit from a new model tailwind. Here it only ranks fourth with 2,102 registrations, just ahead of the Mercedes SLK /SLC with 2,041 models.

Audi TT with a high proportion of commercial owners

The third place in the reporting month also came 507 new registrations of the Audi TT. Ingolstadt residents also have to live with a negative rate. A decrease of 23.5 percent was registered compared to June 2016. In the first half of the year it was minus 16 percent. After all: 3,846 Audi TT mean second place - even if the rate of commercial holdings is very high at 74.9 percent.

The Ford Mustang also has to be mentioned in the sports car statistics, as the model regularly makes it to annoy established top 3. In June he didn't make it, only fourth place for the American, with 440 new registrations after all. In the course of the year, however, the pony car is comfortably in second place with 3,846 new registrations and this is very stable, because the comparison to the same period last year only shows a minus of 0.4 percent>

And what else did you notice in the new registration statistics in June 2017? BMW i8 (35 new registrations), Lotus Evora (2 new registrations) and Aston Martin Vanquish(1) have 100 percent commercial owners. The Corvette (-76.9 percent), the Audi R8 (-45.3 percent) as well as the Jaguar F-Type and Mercedes SL recorded the greatest declines in new registrations compared to the same month last year, each with a 45.0 percent decline.

Note: The registration statistics are the official information from the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Flensburg. The division into the respective classes is carried out by the manufacturer using a key number. Models that are not available on the German market or that are no longer built can also appear in the statistics. This peculiarity can occur with the KBA statistics if e.g. foreign vehicles are registered for the first time in Germany or vehicles have a new ID number. received.
