    Can anyone shed any light on how long it took 15-17 gts to drop in price?

    About June 2017 really started to drop.
    About 18 months after initial deliveries.

    Expect MY 18 to be discounted sooner cos it's a facelift with a few enhancements AND there is not 40 years pent up demand.

    Anyone who wants a Mustang now can get a newbie for $55 k or lesswith 5 years warranty

    The fact that us discussing discounting on a car thats not even available yet is a huge blight on Ford and the way it's handling sales of MY17. Once u set a trend people will expect the same over and now people are becoming mistrusting. Good one FORD.

    I haven't seen a car yet that wasn't discounted after release. It's nothing new, unusual or exclusive to Ford or the Mustang. Early adopters always pay a premium and lose the most in depreciation.

    The only way to minimize that is buy used a couple of years after release. There's usually ones coming off lease starting around 2 years but mostly around the 3 year mark.

    Sorry, no smart company discounts a totally new successful $65K car by $12K after just 18months. Thats nearly 20%. That's not usual. $4-6k might be a acceptable.

    I had a look for the $55k Mustangs from Victoria last night. Everything was 2017 run-out cars. I found a manual at $55k but the autos at $55k were 99% hail damaged and repaired. There were some autos at $60k but fairly basic.
    The 5 year warranty and 3year(3 services?) free were run-out hooks to move stock - still very worthwhile. (most of the cars were Feb to June 2017 build)
    I found one auto at $52k but it was a 2016 car.
    I know buying early in any cars model life will cost, but looking at the specs there are a few dollars in the upgrades.(money I was going to spend in exhaust,suspension,audio anyway.)
    If I can get a deal that works I'll be keeping this car 3-4 years so hopefully won't take too much of a bath on re-sale.

    Those advertised prices are indicative only. People have been paying low $50s and this has been going on since middle of last year.

    You sure of that? Low 50's for a GT? Unless the dealer is willing to lose a fair hunk of money or it's an ex-service loaner I can't see that happening..

    If I advertise something ridiculously cheap already discounted, that isn't my indicative price, it's the price i'll sell it at.

    You're all blaming Ford when it's just as much the consumers fault as well..
    FYI - there's no official incentives from Ford to help the dealers on Mustangs apart from the warranty. So those discounts are the dealers and not the manufacturer at all.

    I bet i'm going to get flamed for this comment :frusty:

    ***** LEAKED PRICING & SPECS !!

    If correct, this is encouraging news - depending on the Standard Spec level (base Performance Pack?)

    Starting GT Price @ AU$62.9K ($66.259 for the 10Sp Auto) plus ORC, And a handy 339Kw / 556Nm :ford:

    "What looks to be the pricing and specs for each variant of the local 2018 Ford Mustang have been leaked online.

    A reliable (yet unofficial) source alerted MOTOR to the information, which outlines pricing for each variant, as well as specs for both engine types in the incoming Ponies.

    Starting with the V8, pricing for the Mustang GT starts at $62,990 before on-roads, for which you get access to a 339kW/556Nm (33kW/26Nm up from the previous gen) 5.0-litre engine coupled with a manual ‘box.

    This, by the way, is 4kW and 13Nm less than the US-spec Mustang GT.

    In automatic, leaked info says that price rises to $66,259. Chopping the roof off brings that up to $74,709. There’s no manual drop-top, just as in the current gen.
    Compare these prices to the $57,490, $59,990, and $65,916 (respectively) currently available, there’s a noticeable increase in pricing. But that comes with a noticeable improvement in both performance and spec.

    Pricing for some options is also part of the information leak, with ‘OTT’ Stripe graphics costing $650, silver wheels at $500, or forged alloys costing $2500.
    Also available is a wing for $750, Recaro seats for $3000, and MagneRide suspension for $2750."

    Anchor posted the specs in the other thread

    They managed to the get the manual under LCT threshold which is definitely a mental barrier to beat imo. Also his post is in response to someone asking if Active Exhaust is standard hence why he says "Also standard!" at the beginning of his post :)

    Thanks. It seems Ford AU have the pricing at a reasonable level, given the Standard AU Spec. Although it seems to have lost the Performance Package.

    I'll have to plead ignorance and ask what it's missing that the 2017 had?

    I just spoke to someone yesterday that was stoked, because he paid just under $54k for Auto GT a few months ago. He also said that if he didn't care about colour, he could have got another k off. For Vic, an auto GT with metallic paint, is listed on Ford's build your own at $66k.

    Initially, the brand new GT Autos were listed at $54 k with no mention of repaired hail damage. That came a couple of days later.
    Still one or two auto at $54 k with no mention of hail damage. Other autos begin at $56.
    5 year warranty.
    Nice buying and you still haven't bent the dealer over yet.

    They measure power differently to Euro.

    Also potentially headers again. Power steering or something gets in the way on the RHD model or at least did with the 2015-17 model

    Who know's? But stock auto MY18s are running Easy low 12's in the states v high 12's for MY17. ( AUS spec MY16/17 mid/low 13's) That's impressive. Now that our MY18 cars are close to US in power, the diff from MY16/17 should be very noticeable.
