Nice idea........but the order banks for the '18MY likely won't open until April 2017 in the US....so shortly afterwards for the UK, I suspect. That's the only time you'll be able to order one of the '18MY specific colours (so Kona Blue / Royal Crimson etc). If you place an order anytime between then and now, you'll only be given the '17MY colour choice.......despite the fact it's almost guaranteed you'd get an '18MY car. Silly, I know, but that's how it currently works. It was exactly the same for some of those that had ordered a '16 in Competition Orange (for example).....their build date fell into the '17MY timeframe, so they had to choose a different colour.

if it's going to get discontinued, order will be moved forward or you'll be asked to change paint. :cow

Possibly an Ecoboost.

I'm wondering if the quad exhausts will be standard on the GT, with an "active" version being an option. I was going to say it wouldn't make sense for Ford to have to produce 2 lower valences for the GT if single pipes each side were stock, with quads as an option, but then I guess they could just share the Ecoboost's rear valance as it does now!

Those wheels are from a late S197 GT500. And lovely they are, too 8-)

Those wheels maybe new wheels for the 'Stang, think the docs i read had a host of new wheels choices, i think multispoke is 'out' as well, so could easily be a hommage to the 197's wheels. Who knows.... ;)!

Or quad is an option............ Or the quad exhaust one that's been touted IS the Mach1 / GT500 :rock :rock
