I bought the GT350 with no pre-conceived notion that production would be a 3 year run or indefinite.

I bought the car because it was the latest, baddest a** Shebly on the planet.

I learned my lesson from listening to Ford. When I ordered my GT500 in 08/2006( that was a great moment being the first kid on the block or whole city with a super care legend), the GT500 was suppose to be 2 year run. This came from SVT

People were lined up the first year eager to pay 25000 bump sticker and more. These customers got hosed by ford imho

I got lucky. My dealer at the time had two allocations and sold me the second allocation for $3000 over MSRP ...

Under the same circumstances, would do it all over again

Hey, based on the latest GT500 news, the GT350's final year is 2018 as the internal Ford specs no longer liste 5.2 N/A engine. I'm sure you all have seen the latest on You Tube...expectation is the GT500 may be released this week on 1/12/2018!!

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.

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.

Ford will produce the GT500 soley in 2019 and concentrate on that production line. The 2018 production of the GT350 should be its final year.

Hey Don, since you are close to Ford...any idea when we'll see the GT500:)

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.
