    Yeah for sure.

    The issue with GT500 will be 2 fold, it will be priced out of the range of current FPV type customers and 2) wont come here anyway.

    Well there's that!
    One the positive side the Mustangs we do get are such a good base to develop from, their presents without the availability of the hero models help to protect local jobs and encourage local automotive engineering innovation.

    You'd have thought so yes!!

    The problem now is the Mustang aftermarket, and acceptance of, with Mustang is now so entrenched i wonder how successful a genuine Supercharged Mustang (GT500 excluded), as a stand alone model would be? Given it would be potentially 15-20k more than an aftermarket offering?

    Has the ship sailed and Ford realised they're getting a Mustang sale either way, be it donor or bespoke model, so why bother?

    Well, the way I see through my eyes, I don't care through a Herrod MM for eg......
    Harrop would be an exception and PRA/prodrive BUT anyday I'd prefer a Factory built hero model full stop.
    Your paying extra for a non Factory suedo version that paying that bit more for a Factory built is what should be on the table if I was on the purchase mode right now.
    Therefore I'm not interested to date as much as I'd like to be in the future.
    Its not good business as it currently is imo - why do Ford accept it this way whereas ALL other OE's have their performance models in whatever version available ex showroom floor and under their control.
    Name any other OE right now in this country or elsewhere for that matter have no hero product offering on the showroom floor at this segment ?
    This is nuts.
    Imagine you buy a BM/MB/Audi/Subi/Golf/ or whatever brand but you had to go to the Aftermarket Specialist to trick your ride up ?
    This is the way I see it, a Factory hipo product gets to x dealer.
    I buy just what I want and know its made to spec, I have problems dealer fix's be it good or bad experience but importantly I'm covered.
    Case 2, buy base model car from dealer, go to x specialist get this and that performance package fitted.
    Experience problems, fix, experience another problem fix, then I'm told I need this added to handle that, have a good run for x time I'm back again for another problem, oh mate you need this because we've redeveloped that product.
    A vicious circle I wish to avoid - been there done that long ago.
    My time is far more valuable than arranging car to get here, leave it there for x days, arrange getting back for pick up.
    If its a dealer relationship I'm all for it when buying NEW regards all the above.
    Who says it's accepted Norm ? its no choice.
    The Pony club member I know has quoted to me many of his ol school Pony members have bought these new ones for dailies and happy to mod them up for fun.....
    I'd like to see where all this is once the dust has settled in saying this.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    I love everything about the car and have been following the channels of owners for a few weeks now.

    A couple of things stand out. On owner forums you aren't meant to refer to the GT350 as a Mustang. There is this class distinction thing going on. Its a Shelby or a GT350. Drop the word mustang.

    Initially it sounds like they were hard to get hold of and I think potentially any super mustang that comes to our country as a factory effort will see scenes akin to Sprint - W1.

    Volume is going to be restricted and a pain in the arse.

    I have faith that there will eventually be right hand drive version of cars like the GT350 and GT500. It might even start as soon as the next 500 but probably for sure with the model that comes after S550.

    I love everything about the current 350. It has a look the release mustangs didn't have. It was a "now you are talking" moment when revealed for me and it still is.

    That said, some of the GT features make their way to the 18/19 GT. Not a F/P Crank engine but a lift in rpm comes power and torque increases that are still to be officially revealed.

    It brings the MRC dampers and adjustable exhaust.

    I would have loved to see the guard and bonnet treatment of the 350 become a styling pack perhaps in lieu of not having access to these awesome cars.

    If Ford really dick around on the RHD scene and GM does bring the Corvette to the world, its not going to take much to sway me.

    I really like that C7.

    That's an interesting point. Now there are no local cars, while Ford remains a preference I'm not inclined to wait around for them to get their shit in a pile and that includes the MY18 Mustang.
