Ford GTFord GT Production Extended Two Years

Fans across the world who have applied to purchase the Ford GT can take a deep breath and relax! Ford recently announced that Ford Performance is adding two more years to the production timeline for the Ford GT.

Ford GTThe Decision

Letters were recently sent out to potential customers. This was in order to let them know their purchase status of the all-new carbon fiber super-car. This additional production is the result of a recent decision by Ford Performance. They ultimately decided to race the Ford GT in the IMSA & the World Endurance Championship series for four years.

Dave Pericak is the global director of Ford Performance. He recently was quoted as saying “While we can’t build enough Ford GTs for everyone who has applied, we are going to produce additional vehicles in an effort to satisfy more of our most loyal Ford ambassadors,” He continued by saying, “We want to keep Ford GT exclusive, but at the same time we know how vital this customer is to our brand.”

Ford GTThird & Fourth Years

The 3rd year of production for the Ford GT will be for those applicants where were placed on the waiting list. The previously deferred applicants and those who were unable to apply during the initial application time will be served in the 4th year of production. The application process for 4th-year production will reopen near the early part of 2018.  At that time, those who already applied to own the car will only need to update their request.

“Ford GT has racing in its blood,” says Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president, product development, and chief technical officer. “The road car and race car will live on, side-by-side, for the next four years – providing ample opportunity to test and prove innovative new technologies both on and off the track.”
