2016 Shelby GT350, 2017 Ford Focus ST, On Order 2020 CTFP Shelby GT 500 with POTTS. Car is released and awaiting shipment. I am running out of time before having to leave for Japan on July 29th.
I made it back safely with the car. I love everything about it except one thing. The car still has that same damn dome light leftover from my 2005 mustang. When is Ford finally going to get rid of that throwback part. Also have you noticed the GT500!has much bigger hips and rear quarter panel character lines than the GT350 and other mustangs. So sexy! My GT350 hates me for loving my GT500’s hips! I won’t repost the hip hate photo though.

I hate to rain on your parade but the gt500’s rear quarter panels are the same as any other s550. The only wider panels are the front fenders and front fascia. It’s the width and fitment of the rear wheels/tires that give it the more pronounced character over the standard mustang and even the gt350s.

I pushed it back 2 days so I wouldn’t kill my self trying to do a 24 hours at lemans with the car before I left. I was supposed to leave yesterday but now leaving tomorrow.

No rain on the parade here. Maybe the Carbon Fiber wing drew my attention to the rear quarter more and it seemed wider to me or the wider rear wheels makes it seem wider.

Ok now the pic applies to Post again. I went and looked at my GT350 rear ending again and they are the same width. But describing the rear end on these two cars as being the same is like what the girl on the couch is saying. “Her rear end is the same as mine!” But the guy on the couch clearly likes the GT500 rear end better! LOL! I still like the GT500 Rear end better too! Bigger wing, bigger wheels, bigger exhaust tips, bigger rear diffuser it makes those hips look bigger to me! YUM!

Reason why I sold my 350 to get a 500. I can’t wait till I get to daily drive mine.

Vern & Jon: Stripes...ah yes. Honestly, being a waxer <grin> and lover of gorgeously painted things like cars, <bigger grin> I can see both sides...with and without stripes.

But as you said, Jon, and I agree...the Mustang isn't a Shelby Mustang without stripes. I wonder what the folks at SA would say...interesting thought. I don't believe they've ever produced or modified a Mustang and, called it a Shelby, that didn't have stripes but as usual, I could be way off base on that.

Bottom line is, it comes down to personal preference like so many other things in life. The good news is, the car looks great either way.

Just a little car called the GT500KR..

Nothing significant though... ;)

Hey guys i noticed this while driving home 2 days ago. The splitter is shipped inside the car and this is where it was resting on the back seat. Splitter was taken out 2 days ago and has been 90+ for 2 days now. Pic is current. I thought this would self correct but now i am wondering. Any magic solutions to making this go away. I have already notified dealer, waiting on response.
