    Re: The new Ford GT

    The car is a showcase for the v6 turbo engine. Without that engine, the car wouldn't exist.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    More like trying to showcase that V6TT so they can sell more F150 with that engine.

    The F150 is the best selling vehicle in North America. Smiley

    I was just saying that the car is a showcase for the engine, but your reasoning as to the motivation behind it seems spot on to me.   Smiley

    I really like the F150 Raptor angry


    Re: The new Ford GT

    I would love to drive the Raptor for about one weekend.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    If you need a vehicle to pull trailers for work, or boats, or haul stuff around, or work on construction sites, the F150 is your beast. They just keep going. It does what it's designed to do really, really well.

    Don't know if this is true or not

    Updated 2017 Ford GT Details: 720 HP, $599,695 Sticker Price, And 23 Highway MPG


    Originally, Forza Motorsport 6 had stated the Ford GT would make 630 horsepower and 539 foot-pounds of torque, but per Ford the GT will make 720 horsepower, although no actual torque rating has yet been revealed.

    The new American hypercar will weigh as low as 2,550 pounds and complete the standing quarter-mile in 9.4 seconds at 170 miles per hour, making it the quickest and fastest drag-racing production car in the world.

    It reached a top speed of 203.48 mph at the Mulsanne Straight and 197.83 mph at the other Mulsanne side of Circuit de la Sarthe, which computes to an average top speed of 200.65 mph.

    With 720 horsepower out of a 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged 'EcoBoost' V6, the GT will possibly have the highest horsepower-per-liter ratio of any American production car.

    The Ford GT will be available later this year with a manufacturer-suggested retail price of $599,695, which makes the GT the most expensive production car Ford will make.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    Good news for me. This certainly means there won't be another Ford Mustang GT500. I doubt that Ford would risk making the new GT look bad (look...the Mustang GT500 has the same engine but a few horses less...) and since this car has a twin turbo charged V6, even a new GT500 would have an engine derived from this one, so good news for me.

    Don't worry, I think my respiration stopped for half a minute when I saw this price tag. Smiley

    Ford wants to promote a supercar and maybe they are successful. If demand is high enough and production limited.... However, this could go the other way as well. 600k USD for a bi-turbo V6 with 720 hp? This doesn't really feel right. Smiley

    I don't know, you could spend $600K on GT and sell it in a couple of years for a over a million. Maybe sooner.Smiley


    Re: The new Ford GT

    This would be actually the only incentive to buy one broken heart but what if the calculation doesn't work out and prices tank? I know, I know, not very likely and if you have tons of money, you won't even care but... yes

    Just imagine Trump wins the presidential election, interest rates go up through the roof and people do not invest in cars anymore? indecision 

    Naahhh....I think getting a Ford GT as an investment would be a good bet, especially since Ford doesn't plan to make many of these.

    I will admit that I benefitted greatly from ZIRP/NIRP that inflated the value of my Carrera GT to the point wherein I could swap it for my 918.  Quite a feat of automotive progress!

    However, ZIRP/NIRP-forever reminds me of turning up the boost past the point of no return and expecting the thrill to last beyond a few more laps.

    Some info (new?) on the application process needed to move up Ford's list.  Might be easier to get a 911R....

    The social media thingie is interesting...Ford apparently wants "public" persons to brag about the car, good for image.

    So where is my 911 R, Porsche? Smiley (relax, Porsche...before you contact me: I cannot afford one right now, sorry. Smiley Smiley)

    They could give you one for free as you such a social person?   

    So you can tell us how good it is... so we also want to buy one, only to find out that they are all sold...

    Bad day for Salomondrin


    Re: The new Ford GT

    He is not the only one, most of the 918 owners who applied did't get one saved for a couple, who have big companies that uses Ford cars/trucks for the longest time.

    The ones that most likely get a Ford GT are the gigantic fleet buyers, those that buy hundreds if not thousands of F150s a year in fleet purchase. Everyone I know who do that got one.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    So apparently Ford does not want to giva a GT to a guy who makes a video about how much he loves this car, another one on how much money he made on the car till the day, a third one where he tracks it as it was built to be and the fourth one that explains why he had to sell the car and how much he finally earned with it. I didn't see that one coming indecision

    Then again Salomondrin will get his hands on a GT for sure. He is not the only one who ditches supercars after several months of ownership...
