Whatever you say.
Your bias is showing, what is wrong, not a hater.
just If the demand is so high like so many here claim why so many sitting unsold.
No need to answer, I won't get an honest answer.
Oh and this mustang owner doesn't dream about owning an s550 350/500.
Now a 1968/69 now ya talking.
Sad you showed your character, and clearly look down on reg gt owners and e/b owners. Don't ya get light headed from all that thin air up there.
I gave you an answer, you aren't bright enough to read and comprehend it.

2016 Mustang GT
Ford GT is a rare highly desirable car and the sustained value, desirability and continued stable appreciation reflect that. GT500s are great cars but their production numbers are in the many thousands. It’s a special edition Mustang. Clearly not as rare a model. The market will decide in the end. But the fact that many paid $15,20,30k over sticker for them just to have one is fine because it’s their money (or in some cases the banks money in the form of a loan). In my case I decided to invest the cash I was going to spend on the GT500 ($120k) and its doing pretty good for me so far. Let me be clear I’m not hating on the GT500 or their owners. I have owned 3 Mustang GTs over the years and my currently daily is a factory orderEd loaded 22 w/ performance package. Full disclosure I also took advantage of the crazy COVID driven used car market and sold my 2016 Porsche Carrera GTS with 1,400 miles on it 2 yrs ago and made $25k over sticker. Mind you when I purchased it new the dealer discounted it $3,500.
So the used car that is now pushing 2 years old sold for over MSRP. Got it. And by "like new", you mean used, right?

Also, fast forward a year later, and lots of us have enjoyed thousands if not tens of thousands of miles of our 500's. I'm sure you almost pulled the trigger. Let's see ya buy one now that they're so cheap.

Cool story. I'd venture most people here didn't finance their 500's, or pay anywhere near 120k. (I paid around $80k).

Way off topic but damn … !

$80k in 2020 was about £62k which is what we had to pay in 2022/23 for a base M1 / non HP / euro spec with no extra options, not even paint (only race red was free) …

Want the Y spoke alloys ? Add £1k

Want FJG appearance package ? That’s £1.4k

Want Recaro’s ? That’s another £2.0k

WD :like:

I paid 5k over sticker for a CFTP painted stripes. That car has a small token note on it that I could pay off tomorrow. At the rate I got, why would I do that. All of my other cars are paid off.

I used that money to make money, almost enought to pay off the loan.

I gave inthehighdesert a stock tip a while back. It paid well and the opportunity to get in and out and cash out still presents itself.

Yep, I’ll finance all day every day at three percent or better. My HE R had a 7k adm, and my HE 500 Cftp had a 10k adm. The only things I’ve ever paid over msrp for in my life, but have zero regrets.

Update to post #27

Of 2092 cars 36.4% are Brittany Blue of those 50.8% are Base HE and 49.2% are CFTP HE. So since this sample is just over half the production ( @ 2092) you would think this is a pretty good sample statistically speaking.

Of all production I am showing:
Base 38.2%
Base HE 18.5%
CFTP 25.4%
CFTP HE 17.9%

Rarest color is cyber yellow (1.2%) followed by iconic silver (2.6%) and atlas blue (2.9%).

Interesting data. Thanks for sharing.

If I am reading your data correctly, CFTP HE is the lowest producing number at 17.9% of all versions of the GT500 for 2022.

2092 x 36.4% = 761.488
761.488 x 49.2% = 374.652096

or

2092 x 17.9% = 374.468

374.652 or 374.468 CFTP HE cars total. Rounding but who's counting. 374 cars either way. That .652 or .468 car must look funny driving down the road. LOL.

Do you have a close approximation for the numbers for all production years of the version of the GT500?

2092 is only about half of the 3911 cars produced.

Your math is accurate based on just over half the "info". I am showing 375 HE CFTP to date of 2092. I am only focused on the 2022, so I have no idea on the other years, but I did see a high numbered 2020 this weekend - chassis number L49xx so 5000 2020s built?

The 2020 registry shows L5758 is the highest chassis number as far as forum members go.

750 CFTP HE cars is still not a lot of cars. So limited production, meh. Today does the number really matter? Dunno. Don't care. I'm up to 71xx miles and have enjoyed everyone of them. In 25 years will 750 matter, maybe but by then the car may very well belong to my son or one of the grandkids with hopefully 100,000+ miles on it if I have anything to do with it (the millage part that is not me being gone, lol).

I have only seen one other HE driving around HTX and it was a base car.

Why are you even in this forum or website for that matter? I am sure there are plenty of classic mustang sites out there for you to reminiscence about the good ole days.
