I placed Order for 2020 carbon fiber pack in June 2019, put significant down payment, still no car, dealer says “there is a hold on materials” FINALLY called headquarters today, was told by Noah in Ford Performance “ production will resume SOME TIME IN MARCH” when i asked Why production stopped and the response was surprising “ due to the sport cup 2 tire does not like the cold weather and they will crack so we are waiting on warmer weather” REALLY....???!!! Anyone else out there just awaiting and getting frustrated?

Welcome to the forum Sovine!

What you were told is correct. Sport Cup 2 cars (CFTP) had a pause in production since those tires crack when exposed to freezing temps. As long as you have a valid order, it will come. The wait is not always easy.

I see you found snoopy49’s thread. Earl does a good job keeping members informed on their cars.
