    That’s not at all why were talking about the GT3.

    It was brought up earlier and if the means were there, it was to purchase a GT3 over the 500.

    I would no doubt, and many people who actually can would. Let it be known I absolutely can’t buy a GT3 lol. Can dream though.

    The GT3 RS engine just has me in love with it. Did you know it’ll make full power in a hot day in Death Valley on premium fuel? This is straight from Porsche’s mouth.

    It also has built in Ram air, and with estimates it actually hits 550-560 hp on a temperate day at speeds. How insane Is that for a 4L NA.

    Edit:

    “We asked Preuninger about the future of the GT3, specifically about electrification and the continued use of naturally aspirated engines. The GT3 is the only Porsche left that doesn't use a turbocharger. It's 4.0-liter flat-six makes 520 very healthy horsepower (Preuninger says that's a summer in Death Valley rating. In moderate climates the car makes a bit more).“

    I feel like it will do more than that. I have a 3700lb car making 600 to the wheels on street tires = 131mph.

    Yeah. Good comparison.

    So in terms of the 500, it might be 650whp and 300-400lbs more. It’ll be close, very close.

    You realize NA 5.0 2018s with the A10s and a few bolt ons are doing 10s at 130mph too..........

    Between the NA 18s doing 10s pretty easily with a few bolt ons and GT350 prices that are coming down a FI GT350 sounds way more attractive than a new GT500 give that its going to.....

    A. Have a gigantic ADM cost.
    B. Bordering on being a bust since its so late and personally I dont think its going to be enough to set itself apart from what a regular 5.0 and a blower is capable of given how gigantic the price will be.

    Im affraid that the GT500 is going to be an 80k joke that would get stomped on a road couse by a modded FI GT350 or stomped at the drag strip by a 2018 A10 car with a blower for wayyyyyyyy less cash

    Some might think this is cool but I only see the negative. It's not the first time Ford is going to screw us over. Sending this car to B-J is just a way for Ford and Dealerships to figure how much dealer & resaler markup can be added. Sometimes I swear FORD actually HATE us. For the last 30 years I thought GM hated us because of what they did to my hometown, now I'm starting to think Ford is worse.

    That’s fine, there’s always someone who wants the lesser automobile.
    A) I didn't bring the Porsche up.

    B) GT3 is 190K-ish, GT500 may well sell for 120+ with ADM. Hardly twice the price. Much more valid comparison than the SVJ which is $520K for 2019, if you have some basic math skills.

    And there's more on this earth than performance figures for a vehicle. Quality, fit and finish, pedigree, all of which the Porsche handily beats anything Ford is going to produce with(maybe) the exception of the GT.

    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my Mustang, but I'm also realistic about what it is... Junk compared to most higher end European cars.

    120k with ADM, please pass what your smoking. Dealers are lining up deals way more reasonable the what 350s ADM where.

    If you think that ADM was ever "reasonable" on these cars in the first place.

    You could argue that it MIGHT be justifed on the 500. The 350s? Nah.

    We will see what they sell for..

    Right, and 500 is going to be a more specified and unique mustang than the 350.

    Clearly you should research the 350 more and the pool of folks who bought them which in turn drove the ADM.

    If the 500 kept the FPC and she'd weight it may draw the same buyer pool but it won't.

    Know whats a reasonable ADM to pay people??

    ZERO, Notta, Nothing!!

    Crooked dealers thats what it amounts to.

    Ive long thought dealers charging ADM should have their allocations revoked.

    MSRP
    manufacturers SUGGESTED retail price.
    Nobody likes ADMs. However if a car is that good, more people want it. Supply and demand means the price goes up. Similarly to the housing market in some areas, asking price is asked and bidding wars ensue.

    So what happens when a car isn't so sought after (like some Chevys)? They sell well below MSRP.

    Sorry, couldn't help it, back to the subject at hand (whatever that was) before the train fell off the tracks.

    It would be sad if the GT500 was that slow. My Stock 18 GT runs high 11's bone stock. The 13-14 GT500 ran low 11's stock. If the new GT500 can't run 10's stock it won't sell!

    Yep if you want to be an early adopter of the latest and greatest, ADM is the price you pay. If people are unwilling to do so, then don't buy it. No one is forcing anyone...

    I’m only using published testing data from the auto mags.

    The 2013 GT500 was not low 11s, not that I’ve seen.

    Motor trend said 11.6,

    Road and track quotes Ford’s numbers of 11.7, and for some reason I could only find 0-60 from C&D at 3.5.

    Long story short is we can’t use hero passes from the general public as benchmarks, we need published data on street surfaces, not prepped tracks.

    So, like i said, besting [email protected] is going to be a major major milestone for Ford.
