ShelbyDude Posted May 1, 2007 Report Share Posted May 1, 2007 Well we just got word from Ford today that they will be REDUCING the production on the 2008 GT500. They are going to reduce production to only 8,000 due to the 1,000 GT500KR's they will build. Because of this they will NOT be giving out the same initial allocation to dealers that they got for 2007. Some that got two may only get one. Those that got 3 may only get 1 or 2. All president award winners for 06 are suppose to get 1 extra for that. Most will be distributed based on prior sales for 06. So it looks like the higher volumn dealers will get the extras. Still no official word on how they will distribute the GT500KR's. This is good news for anyone that ends up owning one of these. Bad news for those waiting that may never be able to get one! There will be 1,000 less available! I was told most would be given to dealers based on their market share penetration. Those with the most market share penetration will get more GT500's. Some dealers may possibly not even get one! That wasn't specified or made clear, but it is a possibility. Dealers that took deposits on their 08's based on the number they got for 07 may have customers that they may not be able to get one for! For those still waiting or wanting one that get upset over this has no one but FORD MOTOR COMPANY to blame for this! I personally think this is bullsh*t!!!! Since the KR is basically it's own model Ford should have built those 1,000 in ADDITION to the regular production rather than reduce it by 1,000. But as of today the word from Ford is only 8,000 GT500's for 2008 and 1,000 GT500KR's. You can all draw your own conclusions and speculation as to what this may create because of this.
