Mine arrived at Shelby june 12th 2011 and was delivered to my house december 1st 2011. Just in time for the snow! Weather is calling for rain tommorow, that should wash the salt off the road.So tuesday #101 of the 2012 GT350s is going to meet the asphalt!!!

Fellas -

2012 GT350 #155 got to Shelby in late July 2011 (from Gaudin Ford in Las Vegas)

basic production completed 12/30/11, but "inspections" and "test drives" would take another week or so beyond that

Museum Delivery 2/3/12, and then off to the Shelby Speed Shop for some mods

still at the Speed Shop - so my delivery date in New Jersey will be some time in April 2012

i would say budget at least 6 months for basic GT350 production, given all the 50th work going on at Shelby these days

Just talked to Shelby today. Car was dropped off last week to them. Talked to Rich in customer service he said 6 months or MORE. There still working on GT350's from October 2011 still. Ouch.

Yep - took well more than 6 months for mine to get completed

take a deep breath - and drink heavily!

it'll be worth it, though, once the car is done

best

As others before had helped me through my arduous wait, I feel I owe future GT350 owners the following...... It will be worth it! I was in your shoes (twice) and each day turned into a week. Then each month turned into two, etc, etc. My frustration really showed, and I even made it known here in T.S. Trust me, the wait will be worth it! Keep the faith, and plan on how you will handle all the "thumbs up" and "paparazzi" that pull along side you to take your picture :camera:

I agree 110%. Hang in there! I’m still waiting for my psychiatric bill from Roger at SA.

I agree that the long frustrating wait (mine was ten months) is forgotten after the first open road test drive. We can feel your pain but also know the euphoria through the gears.

Check your car completely under correct lighting before signing your delivery paperwork with grand turismo. Lets just say I'd never use them again ...

Can't wait for you car pics.

Yea guys production is a little slow. But understand guys there kinda hand built. Plus building a awesome flat takes time. But th great news is she will be perfect also correct. I ordered 1 for customer 11 #25, took near 9 months. But the car was and still is awesome in every way! Trust what there saying, there good people out at Shelby American.

My car took 13 months before I got it home. Be patient it is worth the wait. I promise when you get the car you'll say the exact same thing as the rest of us.

Good Luck.

It took 10 months for my 2011. Worth it? You will know the answer everytime you take a ride and drop the hammer! And attention? I just returned from the fourth car show that I have put it in in the year that I have had the car and got my fourth award!

Car fans love it as much as you will.

Sorry for the delay. I have been completely buried with life and work. I only put on 600 miles on the GT350 the last two months. Too much rain and cold on the days I could ride.webkit-fake-url://0A313557-34BB-418A-83A0-42726BFD83BB/image.tiff

Very nice collection you have! So, was the wait worth it like we all said?

Thanks i enjoy them both equally. I wanted a vert auto that my wife could drive. First time she drove it she hammered the throttle gave it a good go. Stopped. Looked at me and said "Now I GET IT!!" smiled and drove another hour smiling. The wait was worth it. I really enjoy the auto tranny as well. I ordered it with a KB 2.8 blower and this trans shifts very nice. There both in storage and it is now time for more waiting.
