    was guessing start production in March of 2019, then Mark Shaller was on record saying 2020 MY, he's the mustang brand manager, you'd think he would know. Tremec must have things moving in the right direction. Still just a sample size run for 2019.

    Where's that info from?


    Let’s see how things go...

    Btw, did you guys see that NAIAS could be moved to october? Is it possible that the GT500 will be presented in NAIAS this year? (In case they decide to move it).

    that's for next year (2020) NAIAS
    that publication is for ford dealers, it's a magazine they get about every 2 months.

    Major F-up all around.

    The did the GT350 right, short production run in 15 for the anniversary model, then 16 and 17.

    Should have had a short sun of the GT500 ready for 2017 MY (late), but instead they punted the 350 with an old body to fill an extra year (or two, maybe).

    Lame.

    and 18, and rumors about 19.

    Aside from wishing the 350 got the digital dash, and some tech refreshes. I'm fine the how it is now. I just wish that FP would make some performance bits for it past a few R parts. Like an official package with resonator delete, headers, 90MM TB, and flash tune. They have sold headers in the past, and had a few TB options for the Mach1/Cobra/GT500/ect. Maybe a way to flash more aggressive magnaride tune. A version of the CobraJet IM designed specifically to fit under the GT350 hood would be nice. A cam option. It feels like they put it out there, then just listed a few R parts, a spring option, and a short throw.

    They put all that money into the FPC R&D then so little into its own performance parts for it.

    we'll have to hold off on the '19 350 as being a certain. the worker on the line hasn't confirmed that there would be and then now with the dealer publication saying '19 MY GT500. it could drive the '18 GT350 until fall, kinda like the '17s ran, Then 2019 MY may start in the late fall of 2018 and we could see a 2019 GT500 in late Feb early March start up production.
    Not saying they couldn't run both together on the line but I don't think that will happen.

    yeah, probably could be purchased but it's cool it's coming from the factory with a drag pack and upgraded to 725HP

    I am amazed by all the high performance packages offered by Dodge and Jeep. Ford only has the Mustang. Be nice to see Ford put a V8 in the Flex.

    Just a nice exhaust and tune on a EB v6 Mustang would be VERY impressive numbers. Have you seen what the Fusion Sport runs with the AWD weight and just mild mods? They are running like 12.6-7's with JUST a tune on 93oct. Give one e85 and exhaust, I wouldn't be surprised if they are RIGHT on the heels of a 2018 GT Manual.

    And that is with the 2.7. The 3.0 and 3.5 should be MUCH more aggressive.

    on the back half of the 2019 MY, which will be in Calendar year 2019.
    I'll guess 500 or less built for 2019 MY and full steam ahead for 2020MY.
