    The article mentions it.

    Here is the quote from it

    It’s unclear when Ford is planning to unveil its next-generation Shelby Mustang, but based on the amount of information readily available and Ford’s planned off-site event at company HQ just prior to the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, we could be see the GT500 unveiled in only a few short weeks.



    This may not be where it’s at but just what the article says Might happen.

    I bet you're close. I'm going with "about" 70-75k all loaded up.
    If you look at the Hellcats and ZL1's, they are priced "about" 70k loaded up pretty good.
    This is WITHOUT adm mind you. I am more than positive this car will be about 100k or more when they hit most showroom floors. There may be some dealerships that won't rip off customers. All you have to is look at the Hellcats when they first came out as well as the GT350 and GT350R cars.

    Start talking CC brakes, carbon fiber wheels, if you do throw in the DCT I think 90k+ is not out of the question. If the technology is there it will cost $$$$. You get what you pay for I'm ok with that. Just make her bad ass and beautiful so She is worth the coin!

    Staring to think powertrain/drivetrain is going to be the 5.2 alluminator XS(with CR lowered)/10 speed auto .
    I basically have that motor in my KB/Hellion cars but sleeved and sans the cams . (I am building a "spare" motor with a nonsleeved GT 350 block and Voodoo spec ford racing cams)

    ....so may be I can swap the Magnum XL in the KB car with 10 speed auto .....and hello "poor mans GT 500" .....till the ADM's on the OEM ones go away.
    Lol

    I agree 100%! That will definitely be up there then.
    But like you posted, if she's beautiful, bad to the bone and sounds great,.....it's worth it. :ford:

    Like I have said before. They have given me/us more than enough time to save up for her$$$$$. More than excited to get her ordered! Sure I'm not the only one! I have sorely missed having a ride in the garage! Its been way to long.

    I still think the DCT but it may be optional and not cheap, it’s 90k with it most likely.
    They wouldn’t have those brakes and magnaride if it was a squatter for street driving, it’s just some of the did bits aren’t fully regurgitated.

    Maybe a KR will have the DCT, CC brakes, carbon fiber wheels, additional aero, and stiffer suspension?

    Brakes are two piece, steel rotor. CC rotors on a sub-$100k car is bananas. The biggest reason being cost and cost of maintenance. Also they're not exactly a good option for street use. Any CC setup that bests a steel rotor at the track will be horrendous on the street.

    The transmission opinion from that site is just that.

    This. I think CC brakes are overrated unless you are specifically using them for race application. I dont see the need or additional cost for cars that see primarily street use. They sure are beautiful, but I agree, they wont be on a sub 100K car. If they do, Ford is pulling off some magic with Brembo on the cost.

    I know you were. My point was that the 10 speed auto will be used in far greater use across a rather large spectrum, including across manufacturer lines. As such the cost comes down. DCT that would work in this case, not so much.

    I couldn't agree more. The SHW rotors performed flawlessly on the GT350.

    The only thing that gives me pause is the weight of an even larger steel rotor, two piece or not. Cost would get silly quickly but a CC rotor coupled with a CF wheel...oh man, would the MR performance be fantastic!

    I hope the new brakes that Porsche are marketing on the Cayenne get wider acceptance. No so much that I care about fancy no rust rotors, but rather CC sized brakes being an option on many trims.

    One of the things I hate about driving cars other than the GT350 is the lack of power, linearity and feel with most braking systems. So if you can get a properly engineered "big brake kit" from the factory without the downsides of Carbon Ceramics.

    Most cars I work on these days have plane Jane wear sensors for the brakes, definitely no metal scraping thingy anymore. I wouldn't take that as any indication of brake rotor design.

    I dunno man, the CC brakes on a 997 GT3 I drove around were pretty damn awesome and surprisingly quiet. Initial bite took some getting used to but within a few minutes I knew I wanted to own that car.





    Regarding all this DCT mumbo jumbo, IF I were going to let some computron do the shifting I would want it to have a torque converter. Nothing I hate more than the feeling of a computer trying to smoothly slip a clutch at low speeds. Even worse when slowing down at low speeds with the pooter trying to decide whether or not to clutch into neutral.

    No remote start? Hmmm... manual trans?

    At the bottom of the fob there is a spot that is missing the remot start button. Maybe both options, going off this fob and the info we have that there is an auto.
