That is what I am surprised with as well. On the anniversary of photos of the GT350 being released on the ring, I was anticipating something similar as well.

As for the 500 being released IN Detroit, Who knows. Manufacturers are now catching on the trend of releasing products at satellite locations. Ford demonstrated this with the 2018 Mustang and GT350, so where and when it will be released, it is still a mystery. I know autoblog wrote a very good article about this .

You bring up a great point my friend.
Only when we see photos of this actual car on the 'ring will we be near a launch or more news of the car leaking out. I don't think there has been any photos of this actual car on the 'ring, has there??
I'm guessing that means we're waiting even longer!!

Or they could just be using the data they got from the last ring trip and tweaking it for more power. Who knows.

BA Barakas was spotted wearing a presidents mask, supposedly that added 17 HP.

More testing, Detroit/Arizona and Colorado high elevation testing (for Forced Induction?).

The GT500 is being tested right under our noses, it appears to be a Roush-type Mustang with no camo.

Right? Just let marketing make some shit up, they can apologize for the inaccuracies later ...

Maybe this with 2018 headlights? I cannot think it would have the front of the current Roush in development. 2017 Roush with 2018 headlights. Looks like the spy photo below.

With all the hurricanes and natural disasters, ford may not get this out before a massive co2/green house gas initiative gets under way. Where anything bigger than v6 gets the can.

Unless they they go the twin turbo route and if it can fit, PDI too. If Ford goes the TT route, it could help lower fuel consumption and emissions. Everyone is going TT these days for that reason.

Not that they are a concern in a halo performance car, but it could help Ford Performace stay in those regulation boundaries. It would also be awesome (maybe more from a marketing standpoint) to be the first 700hp car to be offered without a gas guzzler tax. Something FCA missed by a hair. Ford already did it with the 662 HP 2013 model.

You guys realize that nothing is coming. Latest ford performance vehicle is the Australian market ranger raptor. Then probably a bronco performance suv in 20 or 21. I still think the next performance mustang will be a hybrid in 21 or 22.

What? You have seen the photos of fully camouflaged mules going around with 335 tires, right? Something is coming.
