Camaro outsells Mustang for the first time in 16 years

The new 2010 Camaro is selling well:

Chevrolet managed to sell 9,320 examples of the Camaro last month, compared to 7,362 June sales for the 2010 Ford Mustang. The last time the Camaro outsold the Mustang in a single month was October 1993, according to Automotive News. The Camaro was all-new for 1993 while the Mustang was awaiting its 1994 redesign.

More of the same could be in store for July and beyond as Chevrolet is struggling to keep up with Camaro demand. Chevrolet initially received 14,000 pre-orders for the Camaro and has since been bombarded with another 25,000 dealer orders. Camaro demand is so high right now that there is only about a 6-9 day supply on the market with most dealers getting at least $500 over sticker.

It remains to be seen if the Camaro will be able to hang on for the full-year sales title, an honor the Camaro hasn’t taken home since 1985.

Very interesting, but the article is a little deceiving. It only states that the 2010 Camero outsold the 2010 Mustang, it makes no mention of the 2009 Mustang. Chances are that if those new car sales were included, the Mustang would still have sold more overall. But as far as model year comparisons, the Camaro did well last month. However, no matter how nice the car is, I highly doubt that it will outsell the Mustang for the whole year.
