Reportedly Ford is building a pilot run of 50 - GT-500s, starting today, Monday January 23, 2005. Possibly someone who works @ AAI can confirm this. The pilot run is usually cars for testing, EPA mileage, DOT crash, durability etc. Some of the pilot cars are usually loaned to the media so the car rags can have articles out at the same time that the car goes into full production. As a reference, 300 - 2005 MY Mustangs were built in June 2004 for those very purposes.
