The Motrolix Take
Do the declining figures present a reason to be concerned over the muscle car segment? Maybe so, but probably not.. at least not yet. That’s because the 8.4 percent decline in the segment for the first seven months of the year is nearly identical to the 8.5 percent drop in overall U.S. car sales as crossovers continue growing in popularity. So maybe there’s not much cause for concern just yet.
