Limited production 2013 GT500?

Went to the dealership and they are asking $10k over invoice cuz they only can get their hands on so many 2013's and that Ford only makes 5,000 of them. I think the dealer is FOS, just to put pressure on me to buy one ASAP before they run out... As far as I know, Ford will not limit the production of the Shelby. Anyone know more about this?

Re: Limited production 2013 GT500?

When it comes to mustangs like the shelby and the boss, they work off a credit system with the company. Depending on what they were able to sell the year before in special editions bases what they get this year. Production has not been publicly announced as limited. The credit system only increases for a particular dealer if they get another dealer to send them their GT500 because they have an immediate customer wanting the car. So it is limited to the dealer you sent it to and they only get to dip into the shelby word once this year on their own so thats why they are charging 10 grand over invoice.

Ford has a contract with Shelby through 2015,so I expect the last shelby to be the 2015 model year, which i believe will be a new body and will have IRS.

I went to 5 dealerships in the Atlanta area and either they do not have an allotment (couldn't get their hands on any) of 2013 shelbys or they are asking $10k over sticker.

I bought mine at MSRP after canceling my original order at another dealer which was also msrp. I would check all around the entire southeast and check...a plane ticket and a nice drive home is way cheaper than $8500.

The only production limits for a gt500 announced online was for the 2011 gt500 and that production limit was 5500. There is an unsupported rumor on another forum that had a ford exec saying that they will make one for everyone that orders plus one. To this point there is no production limitation set. It isn't like the boss it isn't an official serialized special edition. It is a mass production vehicle

I'm curious as to where the $54500 dealer invoice number came from. I ordered mine last month. 2013 GT500 convertible with all options. MSRP was $69095 and dealer invoice was $64026.53. I paid MSRP and the dealer could only promise delivery sometime between July and September.

That's the dealer invoice price for the base convertible. The sales manager printed the order and it had the invoice price on it as well as the MSRP. With all the options it came to about $69k.

Good luck on getting it in 8 weeks...I know people who have ordered on 3-22 and still haven't gotten their car. Was priority code is listed on your DORA and is it your dealers first or second allocation? I personally had one ordered on 3-22 and after waiting for 9 weeks without even a vin or build date assigned I cancelled and bought elsewhere.

That's where I bought my 2012 Shelby and now the 2013 as well. They have a ton of 2012 and are indeed one of the largest Shelby sellers east of the Mississippi. So hopefully they have some cloud with Ford.

Re: Limited production 2013 GT500?

dealer is full of it, they are only limited if they set a number and only make that number. Ford will produce as many as they can sell. The dealer should not be allowed to say such things knowing that its not true. You should call them out on it. They simply want to make cash above sticker, nothing but greed. Those that fall for it end up with a car that wont be worth what the sticker says 6 mo from now let alone that 10k above they paid (or more)

a friend I know purchased his 2013 GT500 convertible for 1000 under MSRP, if you paid more that money is simply gone as its not worth over MSRP

Hmm they aren't my favorite for many reasons. Years ago my Mom went in there and had a terrible experience. What dealers have you tried? I'll see if I cant brainstorm some more.

They sell tons of Cars. I'm sure they have cloud with Ford. They're probably #1 or# 2 in the State I'd guess.

I'd call dealers in Birmingham, Nashville, Savannah, North Florida, North/ South Carolina.

I'd just hate to see burned 8,000 is a nice chunk of change.

Re: Limited production 2013 GT500?

also, if the car comes in and you didnt sign anything they can change their mind and decide they want more.... you cant do anything about it even if you ordered the car.

A friend had this happen to him, they said MSRP so he ordered his Boss, it came in and they changed their minds and wanted 5k over sticker.

Ok. Also try Cherokee Ford Lincoln in Alpharetta, Eric Fritsch is the GM there he's a real nice guy, and I'm sure he'd be more than happy to work with you. Their number is 770-649-5100. I just met him today, but I've used their service department for a while and no issues.

DORA is a Dealer Order Recipt Acknoldgement. Its a printout back from Ford after ordering. Usually comes next buisness day. You should get one from your dealer after ordering. Its a good way to verify what's ordered is what you want.

I do ha a printed out order receipt that he printed out when he placed the order when I sat at his desk. It has an order number and my name on it as well. Has the MSRP on it. As well, but he covered that up on the copy he gave me. It also states a Priority 19. Does not sound urgent.

Re: Limited production 2013 GT500?

Sounds like a crappy dealership. For the price, you could order it anywhere in the country at/near MSRP and have it shipped to your door for less money.
