One of my favorite colors to look at, just not sure I want to own it.
#1 I love the color too just couldn’t commit to it. I had the opportunity to purchase a 2020 performance blue for a reasonable adm but I opted to waitit out and order mine magnetic. Looking back I wish I would have gotten because I would have been driving in may. Good thing is my magnetic has been shipped and is otw just5 months later lol. But that color just screams fast Ford

The first GT500 I ever saw that moved me down this road was Magnetic with black stripes. It was really sharp! If I didn’t get a look at that car I’d probably still be on the Camaro ZL1 path. The Carbonized metallic looks like it might be a little lighter. I think it will look incredible with a black room, and black stripes.

I see that, and will just keep on checking every day.

I am a firm believer in doing what you say you are going to, and now to be honest - as a result, I am quickly losing interest in getting the car all together.

Same! Probably only because we are about to hit the deep winter freeze. Come spring next year, I’ll be freaking out to get this car.

The build site still has 2020 info. Nothing yet on the 2021.

I’ll add this though... I was reading a Facebook post regarding 2020s available at dealers. One guy commented: “Why would I buy a 2020 when 2021s will be out shortly...?” I replied that if you order a 2021, there are no guarantees that you’ll get the car earlier vs. later. It might get delivered late in 2021.

Yeah, I thought about that but I really want the Carbon fiber handling pack. My dealer sent me a text on Monday that orders will be open in about two weeks. I’ll be there as soon as the dealer opens getting my order in and hoping for the best.

I also had a similar discussion with a person here. However, I am suspecting that the 2021 price is going to increase as well - and it's that item that I am most interested in finding out.

More than likely the reason for the "delay" is account the late ordering and delivery of the 2020's.

Does the Carbon fiber handling pack require a golden ticket or some other special allocation?

Based on what I have gathered we will have 3 distinct options.

CF Track Pack which is what we have with the main features being the wing, standard Recaros, rear seat delete and exposed weave CF rims.

CF Handling Pack. The items included in the current Handling Package + Painted CF Rims and adjustable strut mounts. The wing and rear seat delete remain exclusive to the CFTP. Base seats are standard in this package, Recaros optional. And the big item is PAINTED CF rims. Due to the problems with getting a perfect weave pattern for the exposed rims in the CFTP they can paint the "cosmetic rejects" and use them on this package. Honestly, I bet they have a stock-pile already from 2020 production. Make mine Grabber Yellow!!!

The base model with the various lighter options including the Handling Package.
