I honestly don't see how it will make financial sense to keep the GT350 and potentially introduce the GT500. Pricing on a GT350 starts at about 57k. 62k for an R. Is Ford going to be able to sell those plus a GT500? What will the cost difference be? I think Ford will have a tough time selling another car at 70k+

My bet is if there is a 2018 GT350 there will not be a GT500 and vice versa. No facts to back that up, just my gut feeling.

Jamal said numerous times again and again that an auto wasn't ever considered for a production model of the 350.

They did it with the boss and the last gt500. I don't think it's out of the question. Chevy does it with corvette GS and z06, dodge with charger and challengers. At the end of the day it's probably not a huge overlap between the gt350 and gt500 buyers

I agree. That is what popped up in a google after someone made the claim.

IF this turns out to be true, then I'd say it's safe to assume it's the last year of the GT350. If they aren't giving it the updated body then it's just a carryover model that will probably go away as soon as the GT500 is in production, which I'm guessing will be late 2017 if it's shown in New York in March.

Having said all that, those "GT500 spy shots" we saw that had a car sounding exactly like a GT350 looked to me like it was just a GT350 with the new 2018 bodywork on the front that they were testing for cooling. Personally, I'm betting the GT350 gets the auto along with refreshed styling and either sticks around alongside the GT500 or sticks around because there isn't a GT500 coming. Both are possible.

lol seriously? YES!

How many threads do you think we see with "confirmation" without credible sources.

Thank you for posting yours.....that certainly looks like the sort of evidence we're after

Sorry to all the ADM paying guys that thought their car would be a rare collectible in the future.









Anyways, I was hoping for more than just new colors. Hopefully there are some other updates.
