Chevy Camaro Outsells Ford Mustang, Ending 24-Year Run

General Motor Co.’s Chevy Camaro snatched the sports-car crown Ford Motor Co.’s Mustang had held for 24 years.

The Camaro in 2010 outsold the Mustang 81,299 to 73,716. The two models have been battling for sports-car sales supremacy since the redesigned Camaro returned to the market in 2009 after a seven-year hiatus. Mustang had been the U.S. leader since 1986, according to Ward’s AutoInfoBank of Southfield, Michigan. The rivalry dates to the 1960s.
