E It's been two years. Two years in which the Porsche 911, Mercedes E-Class Coupé and Ford Mustang triumphed and posted monthly successes. E-Class and 911 more, Mustang less. In the rankings of the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), the Audi TT often made it into the top three of the sports car, but never made it to the top in the last 23 months.

In February 2019, the sports car finished with the four rings its drought. With 663 new registrations in 28 days of the month, the TT pushed the competition to the other places. In contrast to the other two candidates on the podium, the two-seater increased compared to the same month last year - from 396 to 663 new registrations (+ 21 percent).

911 is waiting for model change

For Mercedes E. -Class Coupé, which was still ahead in the statistics in January, the number of new registrations fell. The authorities allowed the Swabian 596 times in the past month (- 11.7 percent). In February 2018 there were 675 new registrations. The Porsche 911 got worse, falling from 597 to 356 new registrations (-40.4 percent). The new 992 has been available to order for a long time, but it has not yet been delivered. At the latest then the 911 should pick up again and take over the leadership position.

The Mustang just missed the top 3.

The start of the year did not bring any good news for the sports car group. In January the KBA reported only 2,348 new registrations. A month later, despite three days less, it was over 500 more. The decline from 2,914 to 2,889 (-0.9 percent) is bearable.

Ford's Mustang (348 new registrations) just missed the podium. The top 10 also included Mercedes-AMG GT (150), Mercedes SLK /SLC (146), Porsche Boxster (104), Chevrolet Camaro (83), Porsche Cayman (56) and Jaguar F-Type(49) a. The usual suspects gathered in the back tiers. Sports car manufacturers who only produce in small numbers such as Lotus or Aston Martin.

The division into the respective classes is carried out by the manufacturer using a key number. The statistics can also show models that are not available on the German market or that are no longer being built. This peculiarity can occur with the KBA statistics if e.g. foreign vehicles are registered in Germany for the first time or vehicles have a new ID number. received.
