    Considering this is from Shelby American Inc., I'd bet that it is a remake of an "AC Cobra" type car, or the Shelby Series 1 will make a return.

    Only thing is, is that the Series 1 was never much of a "legend" IMO. The Cobra would be much more fitting, so maybe they are bringing back the hardtop Cobra?

    Though knowing SAI, they probably very well would consider the Series 1 a legend lol

    "please join us for an exclusive unveil of a legendary Shelby Ford Mustang"

    I'm going to say it's a Stang :p

    How accurate can this be? A friend sent it to me and doesn't want to tell me where he got it from. Unknown.jpeg

    LOL got so caught up in the shape that i didn't even notice that sentence.

    It won't be a GT500 I'd bet my R on that. Most likely the Cobra Mustang I'm guessing, really don't know how they are still in business though. One bolt-on part crap special after another... :doh::shrug:

    Let's have a "How many times will the word 'Shelby' appear on the exterior?" pool. I'm going to say 42 times.

    That's the same image that Ford used to tease the GT350 3 years ago.

    Honestly, that image looks...like it's not real. I could knock that out in 60 seconds on MS Paint.

    So i highly doubt shelby american would come out with another shelby that was based on the 15-17 MY so it should definetly be an 18 MY. With that being said they cant release that car without ford unveiling there 2018 mustang and with Shelby's unveiling being the 19th, we will most likey see the 2018 mustang gt and and ecoboost by the 16th or 17th:headbang:

    You now what's even more interesting.

    Look at the hastags. #50years #Snakebit #TheLegendReturns

    50 years? I dont want to start any more rumors but isn't 2017 the 50th anniversary of the GT500? What else is a "legend" car associated with a snake and celebrating 50 years? image.png

    Don't think Shelby American will have a 2018 sooner than any of you guys...
    So I'm saying it's based 15/17...maybe a pkg...

    Unless its a supersnake 2 GT350 or KR or something based on the GT350/R. Haven't Ford already announced there will only be colour changes on these models?

    I don't think a facelift '18 GT/EB exists.. or am I just fed up with waiting?

    Its Shelby American.

    Nothing to do with Ford Motor Company so they can label it a GT5,000KR420noscope

    Its still just an aftermarket mustang.
