    will there be an '09 gt-500, and with what degree certainty?
    i am torn between getting a gt-500 to "match" my GT., and if i go this route, i want one before the new ones are gone . . .

    vs just getting a z-06, later, which would be economically more feasible.later,

    if i could wait a year for a NEW, gt-500, then the camaro's and challenger's will be out, and hopefully bringing down the price some., plus the timing would be better for me

    i didn't think there was going to be, . . .
    but, then, as i was looking at evolution performance's website , they reference the 2007-2009 GT-500.
    it had gotten my hopes up that they make these for three years instead of just two.

    anyone else with any info, or was this just a typo?

    so, will there be a new gt-500 for 2009?
    thanks,
    broodingly,
    doc

    Sources say yes, but I can't vouch for it. Amy Boylan, CEO of Shelby Automobiles, repeatedly has said the GT 500 contract will go into the next bodystyle in 2010.

    As of right now, ford and shelby's contract is up in 08. They are undecided if it will be renewed or not.

    I hope it's only a 2 yr run. If it goes more, i'd prefer a GT-350 series for the 09-10 model year before the body change.

    They are perfectly entitled to just call it the Ford Mustang GT500 because..oh yes, that's what it is.

    I'm sure Shelby owns the rights to GT500, even if not used in conjunction with the Shelby name.

    well i heard the prices of the new shelbys were going way up. plus if he does own the name gt500 without shelby and with shelby attached. they could just revert back to Mustang Cobra like old times.
