New Shelby Ford Mustang being unveiled on 1-19-2017 at B-J Scottsdale

Recommended Posts

This picture below was posted on a couple of other sites. It appears to be an unveiling of a new Shelby Ford Mustang and was announced on the Shelby American’s Facebook Page. This topic is also being discussed in other Mustang Forums. For those of us who “don’t do Facebook” , I thought I would post it as a topic on TS for discussion/thoughts on what it might be.

The Shelby GTE was a big disappointment so really no clue what this is? Maybe an R version of the Shelby GT

SS GT350 ?

Although they already market an SS based on the GT, what other platform is there to build on ?

I would like to see a Shelby GT-X (extreme) with a 1000 HP 5.0L (possible) and wide body kit.

This may be a long shot, but SA continued the SS builds on GTs since Ford stopped making GT500s, it is possible they would resurrect the KR and put it on the 2018 Mustang GT?

 

There has been some great conversations and forum posts on how people feel (good/bad/indifferent) on the SS, and I wonder how KR owners and enthusiasts would feel if such a thing happened.

If I remember a conversation I had with Gary P. about the GT350 the agreement with Ford was that SAI would not do anything for the GT350, meaning nothing. I am not holding him to the exact comment but I understood that SAI won't touch the GT350 as long as Ford is building them.

 

How can it be a KR if there is no GT500? Somehow I can't see SAI unveiling a new GT500KR before Ford unveils a new GT500

 

Article states Legendary Shelby Mustang name so that is very limited to what it can be if not a GT350 or GT500?? The Super Snake is already being done so I have 2 idea's, either an R version of the Shelby GT meaning a track ready car or a King Cobra Mustang but that name was on the Mustang II so who knows its alphabet soup right now

If the rumors are true that '18 is the final run of the S550 GT350 maybe Ford is giving SA a bone, if you are correct that Ford and SA had a moratorium up to this point.

I would love a new KR but they have to wait until 2018.

Well on Shelby American's facebook page they also used the hashtag #50years. So that would lead me to believe it is the new GT500. But I do find it weird that it would be at Barrett-Jackson and with SA and not at a major auto show being unveiled from Ford. So I guess all we can do is wait and see.

The '15 GT350 was unveiled in Gardena. Not a major auto show.

 

My assumption is that this will be made on 2018, which 50yrs would equate to 1968. What was introduced in '68 other than the KR? '68 is when Shelby entered Trans Am with the coupes, right? That lead to the TRT?

I am guessing a 50th Gt500 which would set the stage for a Possible KR in 2018. Time will tell.

Possibly, this may also explain the timing of Dodge's tease of the Demon. To steal a little light from Ford/Shelby over the next few weeks.

 

But then, it could be a 'GTE!' The exclamation point is for 'Emphasis'.
