This is a true statement, the sound of a big bore FPC is totally awesome. I can't get enough of it. STILL, I'll wait and see if GM takes on the can or worms.

Better yet IMO. Just go for the jugular and forget pecking on the outside.

And I agree, bring it or I might buy a different product.

BTW, a couple of these people are not members of this forum.

Just wish I knew when we might see this almost mythical beast
I'm just afraid what they had wasn't beastly enough so they went back and are improving.
Won't be for a while yet so we may as well give props to the other 2 builders for keeping it interesting the last couple years. We'll have another whole year to talk to the fellas, at shows and events, about how cool the GM and Fiats are gonna be.
May need to stalk resume speed in a few more months.

Right.

It's been said here before, but people don't pay attention ....

The GT500 name won't be resurrected for quite some time. From people who oughta know ...

And I continue to put my 1.00 on the 'Cobra' name coming back. Then look for the knuckleheads over at SAI to develop a 'Super Cobra' bolt-on package.

Ford could beef up the Trinity engine or they could go 5.0 / 5.2 with superchargers or Turbos. It'll be interesting to see what they have up their sleeve.

Cool

I want to see a whole new name that is not related to heritage. Time for Ford to move forward and break barriers.

The last 13/14 Shelby GT500 video showed how excited the engineers were about building a go for broke car while Carroll Shelby was still alive.
They knew this was the last chance to build a 200 mph beast. They also made a track edition with the trans and diff coolers. Now they have a better platform to work with You know the 13/14 GT 500 is still faster then the new manual ZL1 acceleration numbers. I'm still amazed @ just how fast this old GT500 is.

...however, a GT500 is on the way.

They have spent more time on the GT500 than the GT350. It will redefine the term "HALO" in the Pony Car genre.

Members within the media were told the GT500 will be available to order THIS YEAR. Not sure about a 2017.5 but the 2018...

Well for it to be considered a 2017.5 it will need to be available in April or May at the latest. Would be nice but I doubt it. We will see if the lawsuit against ford because of the gt350 performance issues has any impact on delaying future product or the early death of the gt350. I would think that if enough bad press comes from this you can kiss the gt350 goodbye, not that it is going to be around much longer anyway. You would think that ford would try to make this better before it came to this. Maybe they have and this is a non issue.

In my opinion, the 2017.5 was likely cancelled due to a few reasons. The major reason being the Ecoboost V8 the GT500 will use had to wait for Direct/Port Injection to make 800hp. Initially, I believe the GT500 was suppose to showcase this new DPI tech but they moved it to the base GT instead (good idea).

A Supercharged V8 had always been the backup plan but even with DPI, a SC 5.2 only gets ya' 650-675 anyway.

Regardless, the GT500 will most likely host Fords first Ecoboost V8. There is a possibility that the SC'd 5.2 makes it to the dealership BUT, I believe they may have reserved that for a Birthday Mach 1 in 2019. The last of the Supercharged Mustangs...

People are rather shocked how low the hood is. I would be completely shocked if they did indeed find a way to use an honest Twin Turbo... I think there were several engine options Ford could have used.
