I have a feeling Ford Performance is just waiting for the 2018 Mustang GT to go through the media review cycles before they drop the GT500 info. Why step on the hype train for the GT until everything is ready with the next Ford Performance Mustang? The GT350/GT350R interest hasn't died off so they are covered for now.

Trust me I want the next Ford Performance Mustang info now but there are valid business reasons why Ford is holding off. Now if the Detroit Auto show comes and goes without showing the car I'd be worried.

They could drop the next halo 'stang the day before S650 production starts and they'll still sell each and every one of them.

Mules running around for almost two years now. I remember when there where 04 mustang mules running around with v 10 engines supposedly for the all new 05 mustang. Hot rod magazine scooped the all new boss motor based on fords all new 6.2 engine for the 2010 update. You can go back to the beginning of mustang til the present and find mules with all sorts of things. Mules mean nothing other than they are testing something.

335's? I thought they were 325's. Ahhh....whats 1/8" wider... probably put down 1/2 more HP to the ground.
Hopefully there are some suspension upgrades to prevent wheel hop,this thing is gonna be spinning all over the damn place, even with 335's. When I get on my 300HP less car I spin and hop when getting on it with 325 glue tires. What the hell are they going to use to keep this thing planted.

Sure not.waiting around.for. Lots of.very nice cars out there that can be had for 70 or 80 grand, from Corvettes, to ZL ones, to Porsches and BMWs. No need to wait around for a hot rod Mustang.

That was a pet project for fun, zero intention of being a production vehicle.

Completely logical post. They know what they are doing. We only need to look back at the 2015 timeline for reference.

-drop 15 mustang
-drop 15 mustang 50th limited edition
-drop gt350

There is no hype train for the 2018 refresh, more like a hype bus or a hype SUV.

Your are making my point just because you see a mule with something cool powering it or a wide tire or it sounds turbocharged. It doesn't mean squat. It could be a fun project or testing something for a totally different platform. Until ford releases something everything else is a guess or an opinion.

it was said elsewhere: What do you want out of the Gt500? To beat the ZL1 - L1E.

'you will be happy'
Hmmm, sounds like a hell of a track car to me.
Hopefully seperate packages can be ordered. Track or drag

That's what I've been saying since the beginning.

Almost 100% certain that this car is going to be a 5.2 with the new TVS 2650 supercharger. Packing over 700HP.
OH,........and it will have the widest tires ever on a stock Mustang.

I think your right. Maybe with DCT only
Thinking close to 800.
It'll need compound the complete width of the car in order to put the power down decenrl

I guess we will see. It's hard for me to get excited about another supercharged mustang at this point. Not a total deal breaker but not super exciting either! I mean who at this point is or has not done that! Hopefully I'm wrong and they will blow us away with what they have been working on. I just find it hard to believe it's taken all this time and it will be another SC V8? Ford has been good as of late bring the goods so I'm at least hopeful!
