Well its definitly looking really good now. I really like the styling of the exterior and the interior. Ford came through in the end after all. BUT what about the performance. I seriously hope that MT's "estamted" claims of 0-60 in 5.2 sec and the 1/4 in 13.9 @ 104 is a low expectation. New stock GT's can come close to doing that now, with some actaully meeting or beating those numbers. Im hoping for atleast mid to low 13's.

Estimated, as in I guess they haven't tested it yet...

but when it comes to real world tests they do...
If car magazines are getting 13.9s
Count on them being lower...
THey have grandma drivers. (at least MT and C/D)

What was their times on a current GT?
14.3-14.5? (13.8 Capable)
They had a Cobra @ something like 13.4 (12.8 Capable)

So look for 13.7-13.4 (not shabby)
I just hope they have 3.55s or at least as an option

That Shelby pic does look sweet but it looks like it was photochoped or something. It just doesn't look right.

I could be wrong. :shrug:

It was photochopped. If you read the article it talks about shelby wanting to end his car building career with Ford. I think what they're talking about may be the GT500Es and the 65 GT350s that he is bringing out again, but it could mean on a new car. :shrug:
