Thanks for the info... God is good, all the time.From God Almighty himself who also told me late last night that 52 will have been built through next Friday.
There also were 26 preproduction Rs made which are doing demonstrator and media duty, but those don't count and virtually all very likely will end up in the crusher.
There always seems to be (at least) one in every crowd, Piph. The good thing about most peckerheads though is how they almost always can't resist make themselves known - which makes them easy to avoid. They're usually the ones who drone on about what others must not know. They grow 'em big here in TX.
350R production will continue to be meager for a while. Already-built cars need to undergo a very time-intensive retrofit of a component that also happens to be in very short supply. Further production will increase once all of the retrofits have been completed and all incoming components can be used for new builds, but there's no guess as to when or how quickly production levels will reach original targets, let alone when any backlog will be fully caught up. Fortunately (in a way) double digits doesn't constitute much as far as mass production volumes go.
Ford originally wasn't going to build or ship new Rs from November to February, but they're pressing on at least through Thanksgiving to take advantage of whatever opportunity (and parts) they do have.
FWIW, the 51st and 52nd cars are headed (eventually) to GA and NV, respectively.
As for the total production numbers for the 16 R... Can you ballpark it for us? I don't need an exact number...
If a retrofit is indeed an issue the. I'm glad mine hasn't been made yet.
