The GT 500 will have blowers. . .no Ecoboost and will be in the
neighborhood of 700+ HP

Our times are what dreams are made of. . .let the HP wars continue

Haha....@Bullitt; clearly we're on the same wavelength! I've only just had a chance to watch your latest video

Are we looking at two different models? Or is it simply different camo? The rear ends looks very similar, but the front does appear different. The "spears" on the hood, "GT350 lower fangs" and side vents only seem to appear on the one car. But, again, the camo could just be doing its job

Haha nice! Yeah I definitely think we're seeing 2 different models here. The more that I look at both the more I doubt either are a GT350. My money is on Cobra for the more aggressive one and Mach 1 or Boss 429 for the tamer one.

What about this Mustang that was testing alongside the GT350 back in 2014 on the ring? Could it be possible they were testing a more hi-po Mustang? Yes it revs high in some of the videos, but they look like forgeline wheels and the front end looks similar to the new camo shots.

Good point, but I think that was just a very early GT350 prototype that just happened to be testing at the same time as a newer GT350 prototype. But "thinks" and "guesses" is all we have!

It is also important to note that Ford started the 2013 GT500 started development YEARS before it came out in 2011. Although this prototype may be just another GT350 prototype, it could also be possible that we could have also been looking at the early stages of GT500 development.

If you listen, the car in the picture is not the same as the GT350... so either its a GT or another variant aka gt500 although I don't hear an audible blower whine. It does not sound the same as the GT350 flat plane crank...

You are on to something here, the engine sounds much different than the "other" mustang in the video aka gt350

It revs high yes, but then again with the proper internals, you could get high RPMs on a CPC motor and that second car sounds like it likes the lower RPMs most of the time. Ford could have been testing two different applications as well to see which one was better for the GT350: a 5.2 FPC and a 5.2 CPC. Take a look at these videos of a Coyote going all the way up to 9000 RPM. It can go all the way up there, that does not mean Ford will.

NOTE: None of my findings mean anything may/is true. This is all theory and what I think according to my findings.



Another thing to look at, is the front end in the second round of spy shots. Look at how the narrower grill and lower fascia are similar if you look closely. Pill posted this in the GT500 thread with this caption.

Now THERE'S a refreshed front end I would like, and what Ford should've done similar to.

I agree.
I like that as well. Much better than the '18 refresh in my opinion.
