I'm a Ford salesman and we don't know for sure. We think they will go into production in the spring of 2006 as an early 2007 model. None of this is from Ford...only what I can find in magazines and online. If you want one you had better line up. There are only going to be a few made and there are lots of buyers.

Don't be in a rush to run out and buy one. This happened last year when the new Mustang GT was released. People went out and paid ridiculous markups in the range of 5-10K just to be one of the first to own one. :rolleyes: I bought my 2005 GT in November of 2004, just months after the initial "must have" wave hit and I paid under sticker for a fully loaded GT. Funny thing is, dealers are still marking them up because of "limited availablity" in some areas. Personally, I am going to wait until the spring/summer of 2007 to look at buying one. By then the folks who can actually afford the car or could buy it (not just talk about it) will have done so. I can guarantee you that many of them will have gotten in over their heads by paying some crazy markup or experienced a financial downturn and you can get one for a decent price.

That's exactly what my dealr told me 2 days ago and I'm here in Toronto, Canada. Word for word that's what I was told as well.

Just talked to another one of the local dealers here in Texas.... The word he is hearing from SVT is that they will start taking orders in March for June deliveries. Also, the production numbers will be a normal SVT production levels of around 10k cars per year, and a 2 year Run on the Model.

But as is everything in life... It's all Subject to Change :)

I just came from our local auto show. I talked with a Ford Shelby GT500 specialist. He said they just finished with 100 pre-production models early. They should start taking orders in a few weeks with deliveries maybe as early as June. Options are 1: Shaker 1000 watt stereo system 2: Infrared security system & 3: two-tone leather interior black leather with red inserts and red stitching on dash panels. There may be a stripe delete option but why would you delete stripes as they define Shelby. Mine will be performance white with vista blue stripes, the 1000 watt stereo and infraared security system. I hope to have it by July.:) Good Luck to the rest of you.
