Man the blue oval is definitely keeping us all in suspense. I hope this car is a triple threat monster that will de-rail all rivals.

Basically on par with the ZL1 1LE, a car which could just end up having some updates the same time 500 decides to turn up.

Maybe that's why Ford said Venom kills Demons and mentioned nothing about killing Camaros.

nobody will give a shit about the new camaros if even the ZL1 1LE incorporates that hideous refresh design.

The delay may be extra quality time hashing out the powertrain as Ford May be cruising forums just as this and reading “Blown Engine” threads and making sure they don’t have one labeled “Heat Soak” thread.

Sometimes, the extra time put into R&D is golden.

The ZL1 will not have an "updated" front end like the facelifted 2019MY. Remember what happened with the previous gen? The ZL1 kept the pre-facelift front end even when it got it's rear end "butt-lifted" (I think this doesn't sound good but "facelift" does not apply when it's on the rear, right?).

Here is a picture of the previous gen ZL1 2014 and the ZL1 2019:

That of course was an assumption by most here, including me, because we took it to heart that the GT350 would end after after it’s 2 yr designation by Ford to be followed by the GT500. With that as our expectation, it is 2 years overdue. Of course speculation followed that there were design snags, production snags, rethinking because of the competition’s advances, etc. None of this may be true and it may very well be that Ford intended a 2020 debut from the start.

In our defense, your question above is the closest thing we’ve had regarding Ford’s intentions and progress.

Assumption...if Ford were more forthcoming with updates/changes, meaningful videos etc IMO it would drastically cut-down on the assumptions. Prob would curtail some of the "my brother's best friend" told me that....just throw us a bone now & again Ford.

IMO using the "old" headlights gives the impression that the design work was performed when those headlights were "current". Without any information from Ford, that is the best I have to work with.

The other thing is that the GT500 50th anniversary came and went.

I agree with this, we’ve probably all assumed a gt500 or SC version since S550 started and now middle of 2018 we’ve been sitting on it thinking it was coming for at least a couple years now. However I do like what BMac has to say about lightweight material.

That’s the blue I would get! The yellow and greenish blue color are schwinging as well.
