There will be 2014 Shelby. They didn't make the 5.8 for one year only. I don't know what will happen in 2015 tho. That could be the end of Shelby as they may go back to svt cobras or something new all together possibly. Ford pays Shelby alot of money to lisence his name.

Re: The end

Interesting... But this says otherwise, so i'm not entirely sure.
Shelby GT500 will continue past 2014 as part of next generation Mustang lineup | Mustangs Daily

That is interesting. Time will tell. If the body size gets smaller I could see this new 5.8 engine go into something else.

I would like to see a new Lightning, and the 5.8 would be fantastic in it. Maybe dial it down a bit, but that would be nice.

Probably unlikely, since we have the Raptor, Roush Raptor, and Harley Davidson, so on.

Dimensionally the 5.8 isn't any wider than the 5.0. I don't see why they wouldnt keep using it. In a lighter car with better aero the halo mustang will be one serious *****. That said. It's unlikely the chassis will be there to truly support it as it will be sharing its base with the entry level 4pot.

4 pot? What is that? And when 2015 comes around, it will be pretty crazy to see a GT500 looking like a FT86 but with 67X horsepower.

4pot = 4 cylinder. I
People will adjust. And it will never be that small or light.

Thank you-

I think we will get there. Taking a boat like the challenger, or even the Camaro, will be much harder to make smaller, and light. The Mustang will be easier.

And for the future of automobiles, less weight will be a serious part of it. I think we will get there. Not quite in the next gen, but I think Ford will work for something better. Since early 2000 they have really been looking into the future, and that making the best product they can. Smaller and lighter is the most efficient way to go.
