Posted 20 September 2012 - 12:40 AM

I had a Ford Zone Sales Manager tell my dealer (I was copied on the e-mail) that my specific build could be ordered (almost two months ago). Just last week (53 days after I ordered it), this same manager told my dealer (secondhand from the dealer) that there were NO 2013 allocations available as all had been used, that the GT500 was not being built in 2014, and that the next would not be until the 2015 model year with the Mustang re-design.

On another forum (SVT Performance), there is a post about "Massive 2013 GT500 Allocation Cuts" that discusses losses of 2013 GT500 allocations by dealers and that 2014 GT500 production will begin in January 2013 (seems a little early to me.

Does anyone on this forum (I know we have some pretty sharp Ford people here who probably really know what is going on) have any further (or more correct) information? I really wanted to trade my 2008 for a new 2013, but the dealer is telling me that won't happen and there aren't any 2014s being built.

Thanks in advance for the replies!

While I know there has been allocation cuts, Ford has just decided this week to build 2013's until February 28, 2013. There will be a 2014 GT500. Dealers had to pay SVT a fee to be able to order 2013 and 2014 GT500's.

Don't know what to feel about this. My dealer had an inbound car that they could modify. I have the computer order form the dealer send with the priority code on it. Laser Red, Sonic blu stripes, Nav, Recaros, glass roof, Perf pak. This was the other day, and they told me they will have a vin by this coming week. Holding my breath.......

I would find another dealer. There will be 2014 Shelbys built. Yes the allocation for the 2013 went down.

Thanks! Apparently, it was the salesman who was mistaken. The GM confirmed that 2014s were being built, so it appears I will be going that direction.

Ive had my order in since June. No sign of my car being built this year or maybe even next.

Dealer says he will roll me over to the 2014 if needed, but I am not holding my breath for that one either.

Color changes for 2014. NO Performance white...replaced by Oxford white. NO Candy red...replaced by Ruby red.

2013 Shelby GT500. Performance White Sonic Blue Stripes. Airaid SynthaMax filter. JLT dual oil separators. FRPP resonator delete. Redline hood struts. Michelin PSS, 275/40/19, 285/35/20. Smoked markers. Shelby shifter. Jaeger brothers stone guards. GT350 style rear window covers. Lloyd's mats.

My dealer ended up telling me I was their 2014 order...assuming they get an allocation. I think I will probably hedge my bet and work another dealer (or two) in order to give myself the best chance to get one.

The other "color" change I saw was that there are no matte black tape stripes, just the glossy black.

Unless you're wanting to wait for a '14, you might start working other dealers now. I'd be willing to bet there are still some unsold 13 allocations out there, and with the initial hysteria over, you might get someone to order a 13 allocation for you at a decent price. You also don't have the problem that northern dealers will be soon running into, that our driving season for these cars is almost over.

very true, this just happened to me yesterday. A dealer I've been talking to for a few months finally agreed to sell me one of their final two 2013 allocations to my specs at MSRP.

I saw where you posted it was Cherokee Ford in Alpharetta, GA. Did they still have their second allocation available?
