I really hope the Cobra name comes back. I am kind of over the Shelby nameplates.

Same, I feel like the Shelby name was just a money grab. I always prefered just COBRA, and I also liked the SVT name. Maybe because I was getting into cars then.

I never liked the Cobra name for a Mustang. IMO a Cobra is a two seater built by Shelby and it seems like the name is wrong on a Mustang. It seems like theft of the name of a legendary vehicle and the name is degraded by being on a Mustang. But then I also think that Shelby is a great name for a Mustang.

No way Ford walks away from the Shelby name after the success of the GT350/R.

+1 Seriously.


I don't give a damn what the next big thing is called. The only name that matters is Mustang.

I also think that if they dropped the "Shelby" name the ADM might go away. That's just me though. I don't remember ADM on the 03/04 Terminator cars, I know my buddy didn't pay one, hell I am pretty sure he got it under MSRP.

I don't remember the car's getting ADM until they started putting the Shelby name on them.

You expanded the number of post by complaining. Not like a couple posts are a war. I agree it's like most of the topics/posts in this thread in that it's repetitive. I'm really glad to see some posts on the coming vehicle and some news. It's been a LONG wait.

Huh, I actually care about the name. I'm not too worried that Ford will pick something that would impact my decision whether to buy, but I can't say I don't care.

I think it depends more on how many cars they make and how good the car is. Were there big ADMs on the GT500s after Ford had made them for many years?

I am going off memory, but IIRC the 07 and 08s had them then in 09 to 12 if you looked around you could find them at MSRP. 13/14 I honestly don't remember.

ZL1 production numbers sure seem limited, but no problem with ADM there. Didn't the hellcat ADM die fairly quick too.

There was ADM on 2005 base GT's and again in 2015 so......its not the name it's the novelty.

My Mom got her 2013 at MSRP. However, I remember hearing stories about dealers marking them up after Shelby died in spring of 2012. I suppose that has less to do with the car and more to do with the timing of his death though.

my local dealer is notorious for big ADM's. They had it on the first few S197's but it dropped within a month or two

I've been back and forth on the continued use of the Shelby name on Ford Performance vehicles. I respect the GT350/GT500 history and the work Carroll Shelby did but...Shelby American hurts the Shelby branding. Their products are just overpriced bolt-on performance upgrades with an appearance package. Which would be ok if they actually had good performance, but test show they're all show and no go, at least not compared to a Roush.
