SVT said they aren't focused on the Lightning at this present time. The Cobra is the main seller and that's what they are focused on. Last I heard they pulled everyone off the Lightning and put them on the Cobra.

I wouldn't expect to see a new Lightning until '08 even.

The L is on hold indefinitely. They would like to put out an 07 model, but that is not for sure yet. All of the engineers for the L project have been moved over to the 07 model year Cobra (to come out mid-ish '06). Beyond the 07 model year, nothing is for sure with SVT. The bean counters want to outsource the SVT line to Roush or Saleen :no: :hammer: ... but nothing is set in stone yet.

As for why ford didn't come out with the L to put the dodge land anchor in it's place, well, the fact is that the L is just barely behind that dodge POS by such a small margine, they felt their point has been proven. That margin is gone with a simple CAI and/or catback. Fact is, that "Payload rating of less than I weigh" dodge POS is nothing more than that...a POS. The L is the way to go, and they better go back to it.

Anyhow, there are a couple of threads on here that I started and am too lazy to get the links too talking about the SVT future that contain some other links as well. One of the links is to a petition telling svt and ford to remove thy heads from thyne sphinctors.

Ok...back to the garage I go. Carry on.

Doesn't Ford like hate SVT only because off the cost they have to spread throughout all the vehicles? I mean, the Cobra is a great seller but...

Well, that lady be wrong. They don't even have the mules out running around much yet. Currently they are off in Cali as Detroit is a little under the weather right now so to speak. The L was planned to be an 06 model before they dumped the project, but, the cobra will not be an 06. If it is, great, but, as far as all of the "official" info I have read and heard, it is going to be an 07 model released in 06. It would make sense to wait as it will give this new chassis and such time to show its weaknesses and issues.

As for the cobra being a great seller but... I agree, but you also have to include in there the fact that the Cobra is the marquis of the mustang line. The 03 cobra is one of the most talked/debated/argued about car that I know of. It may not sell 100,000 units, but that is what makes it important. You get this masterpiece on wheels out there, and you start to build new followers wanting to have a piece of the Cobra legend. When they can't get a cobra, who's to say they won't settle for a GT? I know I did. In all reality, the SVT line sells more vehicles from the lower lines. The L is a legend. The Terminator is, and will always be, a legend. It gets the performance name of Mustang out there for the up and commers to dream about, and those that are ready, to buy into...

All in all, the loss of SVT will cost sales of new vehicles. Outsourcing to Saleen/Roush/Steeda...will cost sales.

*steps down off soapbox*
