No, different front ends.

Only the 2011 Shelby GT500 would have the same front end as the 2013, all other 2011's would not fit. If you look at pictures of a stock 2011, it doesn't have the same front bumper "nose" to hood setup. This is the reason a 2011 Shelby hood will fit any 2013. I've got a 2011 and have been looking into different hood options. I like the Shelby hoods but would have to change out my whole front bumper and assembly for the hood to fit. My hood has a rolled edge to it, where the 2013 doesn't because it has a protruded "nose" section in front of it that is part of the front bumper.

Yea it would cost u over 3k for a full conversion.... So if u want a good reason to even consider it, it would be best if u had a front end fender bender or accident... I love the 13+ front ends but that's the only way I would do it

For 3k just go out and buy a 2013 and trade the 11 in. Lol

Has anyone done one of these front end conversions? If so would it just be a matter of buying the front bumper assembly and the hood? I did just get into a vender (hood and front bumper) bender and would love to put a 2013/2014 front end and hood.

Yeah it really sucks that people have tendencies to back into your car in a parking lot and cause the whole front end to cave in and completely crack side to side.

Unfortunately I don't think such an accident in a parking lot would crumple your hood enough to warrant replacement... Although the cost to rebend and repaint a partially bent stock hood may partially pay for the cost of an after market hood.

You should really be careful if you choose to park in a parking lot that has no cameras...

Depending on what style you're after, there are normally aftermarket equivalents for both hood types. 10-12 and 13-14. So you can get the correct style that will fit.

As a side note I don't think a 2010-2012 Shelby hood will necessarily fit a 2013-2014 V6/GT, while very similar I do believe they're slightly different. 13/14 Shelby will fit a 13/14 V6/GT obviously though.
