2019 Best Resale Value Awards: Sports Car

Best Sports Car: 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

Ford Mustang GT350 Resale Value.jpg

The original GT350 was a legendary race-ready Mustang built by Carroll Shelby in the 1960s. Truth is, in all important performance categories, today's 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 trounces that hallowed original, which is just one of multiple reasons why this latest high-performance Mustang has earned the distinction of winning the Sports Car category of the 2019 KBB Best Resale Value Awards.

Other reasons are found throughout this hard-core, track-ready Mustang. Front and center is a screaming 5.2-liter V8, an engine with a flat-plane crankshaft and an oh-so-satisfying 8,200-rpm redline. This pulse-quickening powerplant sends 526 horsepower to the rear wheels via a stout 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential, all mounted in a robust chassis with sport-tuned suspension, magical MagneRide shock absorbers, huge Brembo brakes and sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Not enough for you? The 2019 Shelby GT350 also continues to be available as the GT350R, a track-focused 2-seater that foregoes niceties such as a backseat, a stereo and air conditioning in favor of better lap times.

Also significant to resale values, this most potent Mustang is a well-put-together car that boasts an enviable level of refinement. While the new $46,595 Bullitt with 480 horsepower can't (and shouldn't) be ignored, the $59,140 GT350 goes just a few steps further, underscoring just how skilled the Ford engineers have been at crafting this spiritual successor to the original Shelby GT350.

With its superb power, world-class dynamics, and enticing blend of Shelby and Mustang heritage, the 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 (and GT350R) isn't pretending to be something it's not. It's authentic. And authenticity always leads to strong resale values.

We knew the GT350 was holding strong but its nice to be officially recognized. Porsche also did well...as usual. Thanks for posting.

Fake News>>>> "Also significant to resale values, this most potent Mustang is a well-put-together car that boasts an enviable level of refinement"

Guess they didn't look into:
Engine failures
Oil consumption
Bubbling and thin paint
Sagging rear bumpers
Poor fit and finish
Cheap interior w/ consequent rattles

I think it’s the dude that owns the ‘17 Raptor who trolls this forum to only rip on the GT 350. That’s the guy that I have blocked.

Does it really count when all the 4 and 5 year old cars were sold with ADM?

Technically the 2015s are still selling for 150% of sticker... right ?
