I have been communicating with Cravenspeed about a short antenna for the convertibles. They are sending me a prototype to try. I will keep y'all updated.

Great! I have the old one from my 2012 on my car now, but the base of it is a bit larger than the base mounted to the car, leaving a slight gap. I filled that with a rubber washer, works, but not perfect. I would go for a new one today if it were available.

Yeah same here. I just had a brief moment where I thought to myself, "Where in the world is the antenna these guys are talking about?" Lol.

Yep, I had a Cravenspeed on my 2012 GT. I like their design.
They sent me one for a S197 and one for a BMW, but neither one was close to a match at the base on the 2016. They have been great to work with.

Weird that Ford couldn't pick a fish fin AM/FM antenna in 2014. There's tons out there. I guess they like the stick antenna look.

They sent me a prototype, but it did not fit. They are working on getting an antenna for the vert. I have not heard back from them since.

In the meantime, I made my own. Clipped the stock antenna and put a rubber cap on it. Reception is still good.
