Interesting news on the Next Gen GT350, keep us informed.I am no longer in touch with anyone in the industry or media... BUT...
The S650 was developed along side the S550. To be honest, the S650 is simply all the lightweighting and improvements the S550’s target price couldn’t support pre-2015.
The future of the Mustang will likely be based on 3 separate wheelbases. The GT350 (yes it’s coming back) and GT500 will likely be a shortened 105” wheelbase to support a REAL 2-seat design.
the base Mustang, EB, GT and Special Editions will remain on the 107” wheelbase.
The last option will support Electic and Gas 4-door and 5-door Crossover options on a 110-112” wheelbase.
The GT350 has a 3 year grace period for production Motorsport. I expect the GT350 to release with the S650 for 2022-‘23.
There is a big OHV V8 headed for the Mustang in 2022. It could be headed the Mustang XL or the 111 inch model, perhaps a HiPo version of the XL?
That’s all I have.
