With the end in sight for the Hellcats, how much longer will the GT500 hold on.

Well Shelby put it's stamp on 2.2 4 bnger turbo's.
So why not 2.3 4 banger turbos with a blue oval?
The E/B HHP will become the Shelby turbo mustang .

The current GT500 is history after MY2022 along with the S550. Will there be a S650 Shelby? No one knows yet. I will say that if there is a Shelby it will likely not have a supercharged V8. A twin turbo V6 at best.

They might not have a choice.
Cafe regulations and Ford moving to an almost all truck and suv fleet will require it.
I agree they have no other cars to help with the fleet averages.

Ford did that back then to have the 50/50 weight. The SVO was a great car, once you dropped the 302 in it. We swapped the 4 bangers out of every one of those we could get our hands on back then. Anything like that won’t fly today in my opinion.

All they need to do is make them with posh leather interior , active suspension on par with Ferrari ( it's only coding), and refine the fit and finish coupled with vodoo and charge $175K.

Ford will pull the plug before they sell under 5000 unit yearly.
That 175k mustang better be named changed to Ford GT.

Dodge has bigger challenges than Ford. Show me one electric vehicle by the Dodge brand. And or should I say the now new owners formerly Peugeot who changed their name to Stelantis. They are paying Tesla 300-500 million a year to buy Carbon tax credits for their failures of not complying with Government’s EPA and Carbon Foot Print penalties. Ford on the other hand is way ahead of many others with Electric and Hybrid vehicles. Which means in turn they still have Ice

Don't matter, the new epa cafe regulations, Ford as a mostly truck and big suv and v8 pony car brand will never comply to.
YOU will see a turbo 4 f-150 truck and more and more Stangs will be 4 bangers. They will be forced to build and sell 15-20 4 banger stangs for every ONE v8 Stang produced.
Unless they bring back a small economy car and build it right and to last, and it sells like hotcakes, meaning it can't be a 28-36k pos.
If the automakers were smart, they all get together and tell the epa to duck off.

They sell way too many mustangs globally to people who don't mind paying the thousands to tens of thousands in consumption and pollution tax.

Im sure the margins are high. Maybe they will drop the V8 in N. America where few will pay the huge consumption tax hit coming.

doesnt matter there are always restomods.
