    Throw in guesses, let’s see who is close in a few weeks. I’ll start

    Specs:
    •795hp
    •710tq
    •3925-4030lbs options dependent

    Performance:
    •210mph top speed (maybe 214)
    [email protected] mag times
    [email protected] hero runs in mine shafts with great weather stock tires deflated a bit, some backyard mechanic mods like pull a seat and air filter, etc. Demon holds the [email protected] card over this thanks to its slicks.
    •97ft 60-0 (optioned for it)
    •73mph slalom (optioned for it)
    •1.08-1.1G skidpad (optioned for it)
    •16/25mpg

    ^1/4 mile times are assuming the stickiest/widest stock rubber so track pack but with active aero in a high speed or drag mode*, if unavailable to combine then add .25 to .5 sec and lop off 2-5mph.


    •1:33.x Leguna Seca time
    •2:46.x at VIR
    •1:22 at big willow
    •1:16 at willow springs
    •sub 7:05 at the ring
    •$70k starting price
    •$20k of options, max msrp $89,xxx
    •upto $50k markups for the first 6 months.

    ***Optional 5.2L hot-vee tt fpc with 10spd coming in March 2021 to beat the demon. Guaranteed by cfo who wishes to remain anonymous.

    I will throw my hat in the ring! I’m not going into depth as the above post, which is more than likely a great educated guess and more on point than mine will be. But here goes.
    765hp
    722tq
    4069lbs. Give or take with certain options etc.
    207 mph top speed
    Starting price $74,995, $15,000 in possible options, including a A10.
    I’m agreeing with up to $50,000 in mark ups! Here in the people’s republic of California it could last years unfortunately!

    Plenty of panties dropped on the streets, car shows and cars and coffee when the ladies see it and hear it!

    Camaro SS, ZL1 &ZL1 1le in your rear view mirror free of charge.

    I expect you won't be getting anywhere near that level of information during the debut.

    So people think it will be as fast as the 991 GT3RS on track?

    Could be close, the Z1le is within 1 second of the current GT3RS at our track

    I’m thinking a little faster. It’s going to be almost as grippy as a gt3rs, but accelerate harder.

    The gt3rs traps like 125, the gt350r like 120. I’m impressed the gt350r can almost keep up with the gt3rs. Being down 2-3 cars in just a quarter mile means the gt350r is making up ground on the gt3rs in some corners.

    Gt350r doesnt really keep up to the RS its 3-4 seconds off. Also making up out of corner exit means a longer braking zone on corner entry so the extra hp and 1/4 mile speculation isnt really all that useful. I will be impressed if its that much faster than the 1LE, it needs to be as aggressively stiff and sticky

    Can somebody please guess something with an 8xx HP something or other and be right? I know the writing is already on the wall for a 700 something horsepower car, but it would be o so nice to have that number start with an 8! It’s more psychological at this point, but it will be very annoying when the Mopar guys degrade the new GT500 because it doesn’t even have as much horsepower as the new RedEye, let alone the Demon. I know I know the GT500 is not going to be a straight line only car like the Demon, but damn it in this day and age 700 anything horsepower is yesterday’s news. Plus how in the world is Ford going to keep up if they start using the new Hellaphant motor?!!! C’mon Ford!!!! I know you can do it! You gave us more than expected with the 13-14 GT500’s, which was then diminished by Dodge’s 707, but knowing you would eventually one up that number kept the Ford faithful loyal. We all know you have your work cut out for you, but we also know it can be done. Please deliver!!!!!

    750ish HP
    700ish TQ
    4100ish lbs

    These are my expectations but hopefully I am wrong as this would be a pretty disappointing car for a 6 year wait IMO.

    Given what we think we know about the car, I would say:

    770hp
    740tq
    4050lbs
    DCT
    Capable of turning in [email protected] 1/4 time
    Outpacing the ZL1 1LE/GT350R at the track (generically stated)
    Starting price for manual: $68,995

    Most tracks with 3ish seconds off, it was closer to par and tested against the standard gt3.

    I found 3 seconds at mrls and 7 at vir

    That’s impressive. 3x the price of admission, but never the less, it won decidedly.

    The gt3rs is faster on most tracks than the 911 turbo s, and the gt2 rs is only barely faster

    They have a very capable chassis. Going forward with the mill made a big difference. It’s a hair off of being a midship. The lighter they get that engine, the better. I think the reason the turbo s and gt2rs aren’t really any faster on a track is because of the additional rear end weight. Put and extra 100# or more back there or more and you get funnier and funnier physics rearing their, well, ass...

    I assume he’s referencing all the track times that were listed. Ford hasn’t been into the “our car can run this time at this track” game like the others.

    I expect full visuals obviously, power output, performance packages, transmissions, and MAYBE price.
