Re: Should Ford Ditch Shelby in 2014?

I say let Ford produce the Cobra and have a contract with Shelby for a limited production of Shelby Cobras.....like they did with the '07-08 shelby GT's...have ford build the Cobra and then Shelby purchase it and add their little tricks to it in Vegas and sell it for more...if they keep producing these 500's like this 50 years down the road they won't be like the originals in rarity they'll just be another classic mustang...

I agree 100%. there needs to be some exclusivisity to the GT500. otherwise it just becomes another production mustang.

I think the Shelbys would actually be worth something more than a normal vehicle down the road if Ford would have done this. Produced the normal Cobra and then had a limit of about 1k cars a year with Shelby on them and push them up around 100-150hp over the Cobra~ but they didnt. I wonder what the full count of Shelby GT500, Shelby GT, etc have been made since 07. I am sure its a ton.

I think that would jack the price up to limit them to 1000 production and since the 5500 run of the 2011 sold out, I don't think Ford would want to lose out on those sales.

true, 1000 is a low number~ just something to make them limited as currently they are not limited.

I don't know if the 2012 has a limited production run but the 2011 at 5500 is a pretty good limited run. When you figure in just the states we're talking about 110 units per state.

I have a really rough count on the Shelby GTs. About 500 06 Shelby GT Hertz...5632 07 Shelby GTs.....2300 08 Shelby GTs and about 100 Barrett Jackson Shelby GTs. Like I said a rough count.

I should have been more clear, a true limited run is Ford saying we are building XXXX and thats it, no more no less. A normal build as they currently do is to build based on how many can be sold. Thats what I meant by limited.

Like the 2003 Cobra Anniversary Model was only produced to a pre-determined 2003 units no matter how many were wanted.

I would say the 2011 falls in there.

Re: Should Ford Ditch Shelby in 2014?

its only limited if ford specified the number to be built and only built that number. I dont believe the 2011 was done that way, they built however many people/dealerships ordered.

They didnt say "we are only building 5 of these and thats it no more regardless" or something like that. Thats the definition of a limited vehicle.

No, production of the 2011 was limited to 5500 units. Yes, they said they we're only building 5500 for 2011 and that's it.

Yea but he continues to post unhelpful comments in tech threads (which im guilty of too such as now but i know im not being helpful). He needs to use tech threads to learn and not post unless it will actually help someone (or its in the underground).

Read above.

Should Ford ditch it's history? Let's get rid of the boss next year. No Cobra without Shelby. Simple answer NO don't ditch your history, it's what got us here.
