The 2017 GT's engine notes have been popping up on the web and this is just another taste of it (skip to like 1.03 for the engine sounds) Still dont know how I feel about the 3.5 ecoboost engine, I know it will be good but will it have character? I will say sounds great
INFORMATION 2016 Ford GT Program Update SUMMARY The purpose of this communication is to provide dealers with new information on the Ford GT program and establish timing expectations for the ordering process. Ford GT Program Update Raj Nair, Ford’s Global Director of Product Development will be making the following announcement to a gathering of Ford GT owners on Thursday, August 27, 2015: Ford will introduce a unique ordering process for the all-new Ford GT supercar, with the program commencing in early 2016. Ford GTs will be assigned based on a customer application process, offering a personalized experience for every Ford GTbuyer. Anyone can apply; priority will be given to loyal Ford customers including current Ford GT owners. Applicants selected through the process will be assigned a car by Ford and complete their purchase through a Ford GT certified dealership of their choice. Additional Information for Dealers The Ford GT customer application process will begin in early 2016. Details on the application process will be provided closer to the application process start date. Ford dealers will be able to opt-in and certify to sell the Ford GT. Details on the sales certification requirements will be communicated later this year. A separate process will be established for Ford Dealership owners who wish to register and own a new Ford GT. Limited production, high cost materials/parts and unique technologies will require unique factory-sponsored processes and resources to support customers and dealers. A separate service opt-in and certification process will be communicated in Q2/Q3 2016. We recommend that dealers refrain from taking customer deposits. As we continue to develop and refine the unique customer selection, allocation, and distribution processes for this extremely low-volume supercar, we will keep dealers fully informed.
