In general, the 25 year demarcations get more fanfare in most aspects of life. Ford did very little with the 50th anniversary edition with just minor cosmetic changes from the stock form. Not really expecting much out of this one. Won’t be disappointed if I am wrong though.

If I am right, it should be quick, especially if it is a V8 hybrid instead of an Ecoboost 2.3 hybrid. Would make a great Mach 1 or Cobra Jet.

The new Shelby Super Snake has 830 HP and magnesium wheels.

Does anyone remember the patent Ford filed a few years ago? Was clearly an S550 (same as S650) Mustang chassis with a Coyote, had electric motors on each side of the engine as drive for the front wheels; everything else looked like standard Mustang. Maybe this orange car is that in production?

I was thinking the same thing.

I thought I remember a thread when the 2015 GT350 came out that the hubs were splined as if AWD was in the future. Anyone with a late model GT350 see this?

Yes, the GT350 front hubs are splined. Perhaps a component from the corporate parts bin?

So I guess the S650 Shelby will be a Super Snake and there isn't going to be a GT500 in 2025?


It looks like it has been answered that there won't be a GT500 for the S650, but Shelby America models before this had no impact on whether there was a Ford produced GT500. Two separate businesses with the only relation being the Mustang base they're built off of. So Ford could build a GT500 if they wanted.
