A couple of weeks ago, someone bought the 100,000th Mirage in the U.S.
(6th generation Mirage, that is.)
If you've been following the Mirage sales numbers thread, you knew this was coming. And by the end of July, total U.S. sales hit 101,329.
Coincidentally, this month is the 5-year anniversary of the very first shipment of Mirages setting sail for the U.S. (They were in dealerships late September, 2013, and 20 buyers took one home that month.)
Globally, about 750k Mirages have been produced to date. (Related thread: It's the 6th gen Mirage's birthday (Mar. 20, 2012 launch) Production history trivia! )

Back to the U.S...
What's really interesting is the upward sales trajectory of the Mirage through each of the last 5 years. It has managed to increase sales a little bit every year, while sales of almost every other small car on the market have tanked in the same period. (Some of its early competitors have even been dropped from the market.)
Mirage owners can toot their own horns.
