ShelbyDude Posted May 12, 2007 Report Share Posted May 12, 2007 There is approx. 4 weeks left until the 2007 Mustang production comes to an end. So who knows how many more Shelbys will be produced over the next 4 weeks. As of tonight there is just over 4,240 Shelbys left that are currently showing up. Here is what is interesting. They are building somewhere between 8,000 - 10,000 GT500's and only 6,000 SGT's. As of tonight there are 3,220 SGT's showing up in inventory across the country. Now there are a LOT of these that are still sitting at SAI or still in transit on the way to SAI before being completed and shipped to the dealer. Ford invoices the dealer approx 7 - 10 days before the vehicle is built and usually adds it to the dealer's inventory as soon as it is released from the plant. For example, we have an SGT that was built on March 5th that we are still waiting on from SAI. But this car has been showing in our inventory for 2 months even though we still don't have it! But what is interesting is that there is still over 50% of the total number of SGT's to be built that are still showing in inventory. The GT500 is showing 10% or less of what the total production is suppose to be for all of 2007. As of tonight there is a total of 822 GT500's showing up nationwide. 555 Coupes 267 Convertibles This is about 8% - 10% of what the total production will be for 2007. The 2008 production is suppose to begin on June 25th. So it will be real interesting to see how many GT500's will be showing up after that date once the 2008's start production. I will take another count at that time. For those that are still waiting on one that could possibly be one of the best times to try and get one. With the 2008's out dealers that are still sitting on a 2007 just might be willing to deal more just to get rid of it. With the exception of several dealers that are sitting on a few that bought those from other dealers and paid $10K - $15K over to get them. Those dealers may end up stuck with a few unless they decide to cut their losses and take a big hit on them. The other thing is that many of the 822 showing as of tonight there are probably a lot of those that are sold and just recently released from the plant and still in transit to the dealer. So I think the best time to get a better idea of what all is out there will be about two weeks after the 2008 production has started. By then I would suspect all the 2007 models will have been shipped and arrived at the dealer and any the ones that are sold will have been delivered to the customer by then.
