    Any new info on when the 2014 Shelbys will start being built?

    I just ordered a 2014 GT500 and wanted to know if anyone has any idea when production will start for the 2014 Shelby. I also wanted to know if orders were taken in the order they are received like a first come first serve type of thing or how they decide which gets built when. I am actually hoping the earliest I can get mine will be April or so.....


    My wife and I are crapping kittens.....can't wait!!

    I called SVT today with my order number and dealer code and they indicated scheduling will likely begin after Jan 1. My dealer said that it is not based on first come first serve, but rather determined by Ford.

    The above post may come off as abrasive, insensitive, or condescending in nature. Chances are, it was provoked by not being able to fix stupid.

Since the '15 model will be all new, I assume '14 production will end earlier than '13 production, right?
    Thanks,

    They should start building them in March. As for how many months, not sure on that- but I'd expect the run to be shorter than the 13

    It will be interesting to see if prices start to come down on the '14s. I've got a feeling they won't come down much.

    Side note! My local dealer, Tindol Ford, Gastonia, NC, (Gordon Haygood) 704-884-2209, has two GT 500 coming in. One in a loaded black, the other a lightly optioned red. The black is due within the next 2-3 weeks, the red a little longer. It was late in the day when I was talking with Gordon and I don't know if any changes can be made to the red. Call direct if interested, as always, make your best deal. Good luck.

    So possibly mid April at the earliest? Do you know how Ford determines what cars get built when? Is it based on the dealer and region?

    Also does anyone know if the new paint process is going to look noticeably better on a black car than before?

    There is to order in how dealers get there cars built to a point , the large dealers that sell tons of mustangs and that are in the right area of the country get pulled first.

    I would bet you'll see cars on lots in April at the earliest.

    As for what dealers get cars 1st/ really no rhyme or reason. I got mine in may- one of the 1st to get theirs and it was from a small dealer that sells less than 10 mustangs a year. Yet the largest dealer in my area just got their 1st Shelby in October.

    Not quite sure on the rhyme or reason of how orders get pulled at this point.

    $450 more, but heated seats are now standard with all packages except Recaro's.

    Within about 3-5 weeks before its built a VIN will populate, and about 7 days before your blend date, you'll be able to see your window sticker.

    Thanks for the response. That timeline will work nicely.

    Something to take into consideration, information on the 2015 Mustangs will start to leak out way before the end of 2014 production. If Ford does not have a replacement for the 2014 GT500 and or the styling of the 2015 does not appeal to potential GT500 buyers, the 2014's will be priced accordingly.

    I think the 14s are going to be just as pricey as the 13s...if not more so. All the people that wanted a 13, but had to wait will buy a 14 and all the people that want this body style will buy a 14 also so prices will remain high....I'm sure the dealer markups will remain at most dealerships....

    Thats exactly what options I ordered . I wouldnt wait around to long, I called every dealer in the state of ND and all had sold their allocations. Found one in a neighboring state though.

    Because of the demand of the 13, and lack of supply. You'll find that most 14 allocations will go quite fast. Being that they probably won't build more than 3500 in a short model year.

    Really interested to see what SVT will do, if anything for 2015, won't be long now til we know...

    If my love for the Porsche wasn't so strong I'd be ordering a '14 silver, stripe delete, recaro/Nav, vert.
