Default 2015 Shelby?

Guy at the stealership told me to hurry up and buy a Shelby because 2014 was the last year. I laughed. This the only mention I could find in a quick google search.

Bad news then, because it is VERY likely that 2014 will be the last year for an SVT/Shelby for a couple years. In true Ford form (except for 1994) the performance monsters really won't surface until the platform has a chance to get traction in the market. The 2015 model is SO different and they are hoping for a "world market".... so your friend is likely right on point, but its not going away forever.

I am fine if the affiliation with Shelby goes away. SVT cobra return without the additional licensing fee works for me.

That is what I have today realistically in a 2011.

A Cobra only name won't make the car any cheaper.

I didn't say cheaper .....but hopefully we get more car for similar money.

I also have a SVT cobra that wasn't cheap either.

A Cobra without the Shelby name is less of an icon.

You could be right.

I am of the opinion that the true performance of the car especially when compared to its peers in its era will truly determine whether it is an icon or not.

Both are great. I have a Shelby and a 04 SVT Cobra. Both are iconic IMO.

A 99 SVT cobra - iconic (no)
03/04 SVT cobra - iconic (yes)

Proof is in the product more than the name.

The name comes with a heritage that "SVT Cobra" doesn't have as deeply IMO.

Shelby GT500 is such a step up in standard it's crazy.

Default Re: 2015 Shelby?

If we lose the Shelby name the meaning behind the car would be different. Imagine no Shelby badging on the car, and a car that looks nothing like our cars, but says SVT. It would be something new entirely-kinda sad, could we still call the forum fordgt500 or would it be called something else?

Keep the forum the same name, the guys with the new "SVT Mustangs" will have to go somewhere else, they won't be welcome here...
