Ford GT Demand Spurs 2 More Years of Production

Ford will continue to build its GT supercar for another four years, which means that we can expect a total of 1000 units.

The first run of 500 cars, which will be built over the first two years, is already spoken for, and plenty of people who wanted to buy one were denied access. Those applicants who were wait-listed during the initial process will be first in line to get their hands on one of the newly announced GTs from the third year of production.

The final year of production will be open to those who were initially denied a car and to new applicants. Those who missed their chance to apply the first time will have to wait until early 2018 to place all-new applications.

Keeping GT production going also supports Ford’s motorsports initiatives in both IMSA and World Endurance Championship for the next four years.

“While we can’t build enough Ford GTs for everyone who has applied, we are going to produce additional vehicles in an effort to satisfy more of our most loyal Ford ambassadors,” says Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. “We want to keep Ford GT exclusive, but at the same time we know how vital this customer is to our brand.”

    I demand a Ford GT. I also demand it come with a manual transmission. In the words of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, "Make it so," Dearborn, preferably in blue.
