Pretty sure mine was a 2019 (possibly a 2020) with 7439 miles back in May of this year. Chassis number TT0009 but it had the carbon fiber dash and the swing. I did notice that the wheels didn't specifically correspond with the year of the car. I'd say they just rotate through wheels/tires and the wheels don't necessarily stay with the car.

Most of these cars are regular production 2016 Track Package cars. I've been to
more than one of the GT350 Track Attack programs.
Dan, sounds like the cars that you had driven the last few years may be some of the same cars that I drove at the NA Track Tour that took place at Sebring in October 2015.

The cars back then at Sebring were a mixture of 2016 PP MP Track Pack and also 2016 PP and MP R model cars.

I do remember seeing a 2016 TT R model but it was not running the day that I was there.

Of course with the launch of the 50th Anniversary 2015 GT350/R cars in July 2015 there were no Pre-Production examples built as Ford decided to build many of the 2016 GT350/R Pre-Production units prior to the 2015 cars being assembled.

Based on your response it sounds like that some of the 95 Pre-Production GT350R's from 2016 are still around.

I think some were, but not all. Mine was a '17 as well I believe
The pre production question had to do with PP0001’s response in post #11 here. I should have separated the questions.

I was on a tour of Charlotte about a month ago. I ran into an employee of the school and asked him about the cars. He said they would probably keep some of them and sell the rest (probably half). He said they had been contacted by a buyer that wanted to buy all of them.

I’m curious why anyone would want one of those cars.
I know for a fact some had issues because my #11 lost oil pressure with just a couple laps to go at the end of the day. I could not find out what the outcome was for that car.
I look at this like buying a rental car. You know they were beat on.
Beat on? Eh, not really. Driven like they were designed. Might I add they were cared for very well.

And like I said, plan on an engine refresh...... at least thats what I'd do. One of those would be a perfect track car and if you can get them at the right price, it would be a no brainer.

Agreed that these cars were driven very hard but purchasing one of these Pre-Production cars at the right price would be pretty cool in my opinion.

Obviously these vehicles were serviced on a regular basis by either a local Ford dealership for the big stuff and on site track maintenance personnel for the smaller stuff.

No question that a lot of patina would come with one of these vehicles and hopefully FP would still have some documentation that could be supplied for any given vehicle purchased.

Easy to get an Oasis Report for any of these vehicles which should show any warranty work done by a Ford dealership and also easy to check out to see if the engine and/or tranny are original to each car.

I get where you are coming from but I also like the idea of owning a Pre-Production GT350 that had some interesting history, but as you suggested buyer beware. :giggle:
I think that these were regular production cars. I know they did receive a PP or a TT that the FPRS converted into an all out track car.

Your reasoning is the only practical one I could think of. Then again practicality is very subjective 😊
Are they pre production? I thought my #11 is a ‘17 IIRC.
They were production 2016 track packs.

These were taken care of very well, all have Watson Roll Bars, APR wheel studs and
a few more durability upgrades. I agree with Tom completely.

“Anything” at the right price is a good deal.
The guy who wants to buy all of them has plans. I’d bet it’s not to track them, he wants to flip ‘em.

G0082 was the 2016 Track Package GT 350 I drove in June.

They do have a list going. Called today. I and a Buddy put our names on the list. I’ve been to a few of the track attacks as well. I let him use my R purchase spot to go.

I'm betting on a driving school buying them

If i was them, I wouldnt sell them. Why not have an arrive and drive program where people can rent them?

I would participate in that.
