Despite the price delta from the Ecoboost/GT to the Mach1/Shelby, the latter does not pay the bills. Ford is a volume producer, and as such its a "nice to have" specialty line coming from them, but at the end of the day, if they cut both of those totally out of production, it would not have a genuine impact to their bottom line. The F150s, the Rangers, the Escapes, the Explorers, the Ecosport, those are the profit margin for Ford, that is what keeps the lights on, when you get into the entire Mustang line, it is a bigger liability for Ford, because these cars for the most part are expected to be "perfect" and if they are not people will complain. Here's a recent scenario I was in, my 2021 GT had scratches under the clear when it arrive, it had to go back in and Ford had to pay the local dealer to fix it....now if these micro scratches under the clear were on the roof of my 2021 F150, I would have let it go, its a daily driver, its gonna go through car washes, its going to end up with micro scratches, but the fact that my GT is garage stored, hand washed and only driven on nice days, I am going to expect more from Ford on it, as do most Mustang owners. At the end of the day, we are at the mercy of what they want to produce, and Ford has stock holders that will hold them accountable for not optimizing profit over the wants of subset of buyers.Fucking sucks for every one of you guys. Ford should stop building all the ecoboost and gt cars and prioritize only Mach 1’s and shelbys until the last day. Those can wait until next year.
