They could , I know I'm crazy, but hear me out.lolIt isn't that it is "too hard." The bottom line is weight and the purpose. The GT500 is fat enough as is and a convertible variant would be an ultra pig what with requisite stiffening panels needed as well as the top mechanism. This would be quite a bit beyond the scope and pretty much neuter the performance the vehicle was capable of. In essence, it was never even a consideration, thank God.
Too bad Hau didn't make this comment at inception or one regarding the fact that there would be no manual transmission S550 GT500. It sure would have saved a lot of wasted bandwidth.
They could build a car that "looked" like a Shelby But with the Gt powertrain for those that want the look.
Wasn't that basicly what the ORIGINAL C/S in the late 60's was?
I don't know why anyone would want a 600+hp convert anyways. Other than my stick is bigger than your stick contest.
But then again, I don't have a death wish. So there is that.
