I was hoping they would stop production when the 500 comes out.
Same as what I've read to date as well. Excited to finally see the GT500 unveiled!!So far I’ve read the 500 will be a cross plane crank. I think the 350 engine will go away with the car. It’ll make our cars that much more special in my opinion.
Hey Don, since you are close to Ford...any idea when we'll see the GT500Ford will produce the GT500 soley in 2019 and concentrate on that production line. The 2018 production of the GT350 should be its final year.
While I agree with you that it is not cost effective to end the production so soon, they might just take a few years break to concentrate on the 500s. On the flip side, if Ford decides to sell just the FPC engines to offset the initial cost, we probably will see people swapping the Voodoo into their rides. This may not make the 350 so special anymore. Another guess is that they can revamp the FPC just like they did with the Coyote over the years and make another run of the GT350 after a few years break.I just don't see Ford dropping the 5.2 FPC. They're going to have to sell a lot more to amortize the cost.
