He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2018, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more! Ownership of a Shelby is not required to be a member. The club is dedicated to serving all Shelby enthusiasts past and present including those that own cars built in the 1960's and Shelby Dodges too!

 Bump.

 So it appears no one is buying a new 2019 Shelby GT ?  

Unless someone wants to buy one and put it in plastic and set it in the garage for 10 years and try to make some money.... we all know how that went last time though .

Just because nobody is posting up here on the TS website does not mean SAI is are not selling the 2019+ Shelby GT and GT-H (Heritage) models. It seems like there is more effort over on the TS Facebook page these days. If you go over there, they have plenty of recent pictures of what appears to be 2019+ Shelby GT models on the lifts being prepped for customers.

There are two things operating here.

1.  This forum is no longer representative of the Shelby American target demographic.    Not that it ever really was, which leads to..

2.  The buyers of the latest generation of Shelby cars are not Forum people, and aren't probably even Facebook people.

The car appears nice just too much money for a base vehicle. The Bullitt is much more of a car than the base 2019 SGT and is $20k less expensive for he lowest optioned SGT. I would like to know who has bought one or which dealer has one for sale. Just too much money for a base car. IMO I believe they are concentrating on higher end clientele and the blue collar buyer is not on their radar any longer.

Yep, you just stated why this forum doesn't get much SAI marketing info any more...    No money or buyers to be found here.

Swedeman, no replies to your post doesn't necessarily mean no one is buying these cars.

Just look at how many thousands of Shelby trucks have been sold over the last couple of years and compare that number to the number of Shelby truck posts being made. As you can see there is no correlation between postings & sales numbers.

Why is that you may ask? Not really sure except that a lot has changed in the last 10 years from both the buyers perspective and the manufacturers perspective and how they interact with each other. What worked 10 years ago may not work today, just look at social media today compared to social media in 2008.

While the Ford Bullitt Mustang is a fine car in its own right, I do not believe their is much crossover between Shelby GT buyers and Bullitt buyers. A Shelby GT buyer has criteria in mind that doesn't fit with what a Bullitt Mustang offers and vice versa, a Bullitt buyer has criteria that doesn't fit the Shelby GT. I do know that not one Shelby GT buyer has said that they wish they had purchased a Bullitt instead of the Shelby.
