Initially, allocations for base cars will probably be very light since they'll want to push fully loaded track pack cars out at top dollar. But once things settle down, we'll probably see more of them, maybe some time next year.
Does anyone have photos of the silver car that's sitting on the rack at NAIAS? It apparently DOES NOT have the carbon fiber track pack. There's one lousy photo on jalopnik and the alloys look like they're Ford GT inspired.
For a second I thought I was on Rennlist... There are almost daily threads on this topic about GT3/GT3RS.
BTW, Ford did double GT production after the initial announcement of the car. I believe they added a year, effectively doubling the total production.
^Maybe, but it's also clear that an internal investigation was done that likely took months, if not more to complete and following that he was terminated. Add the personal statement admitting his own misconduct and I'm sure there was plenty of meat on the bone. This is all most probably...
What appears to be a brand new, untitled 2016 tech pack car with a bigger discount than probably any other in the country (for good reason). Absurd
Because, contrary to what the magazines and Jalopnik would like to have everyone believe, very very few people buy a car based on the stats.
Good news is, cash on the hood makes it a buyers market and hopefully you'll have a better experience than when you bought your Shelby.
Not to mention, if you respray you risk loss-of-value. I agree that if paint and preserving originality for value are a concern then a full wrap is a total no-brainer. Or you could just not worry about it, treat it well, drive the wheels off the car and then have the badly affected areas...
Barrett Jackson in 50 years:
"An opportunity of a LIFETIME FOLKS! An all original Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R with only FOUR THOUSAND MILES and in untouched original condition all the way down to the rear bumper panel gap. They don't get much nicer than this."
My $.02 from someone who's in the market: There's a car that's nearly identical to yours, but with black stripes instead of white, for sale up here in Sacramento posted in the Mustangs for sale section. He's dropped the asking price to $53,500 recently and us California folks live in a sea of...
My two other cars are nearly identical shades of blue and I don't want three of the same color, but damn this is tempting.
I've been jacked around by so many of the local dealers up here...maybe I need to find an excuse to drive up to Elk Grove and have a look.
machsmith and Shift nailed it.
This has probably already been covered, but here's my $.02 from someone who's worked in automotive product planning (current job is also in auto, but on the finance side). OEs have access to a lot of statistics, one of which shows what vehicle the person...
