    I know the car could come in at 3750 with a supercharger but it needs to run a lot of carbon fiber and aluminum to do so. I hope we see a switch to an aluminum frameZzz I’d be so happy. It is not going to happen but one can hope

    Since it's a unibody, wouldn't the whole body have to be aluminum?

    Whole floor body and roof would be my honest hope. Frame, panels, etc. It won’t happen in a well selling generations halo model and I get the economics of why. Would be so nice though. It would mandate an additional $5k sticker price minimum.

    Don't forget, the Mustang GT comes/came with a lot more options than the GT500; lighting packages, interior upgrades, heated/cooled seats, sound system, etc. With the GT500, you either got Nav or no Nav. Other than the SVT Perf Pack which reduced weight, that was all the options you got.

    What is the performance car world coming to when 3900+ lbs is acceptable?

    What?

    What gt500 only came with nav or no nav?

    You could get glass roof
    Shaker sound system
    The car came with heated seats unless you went with recaros.

    In 2013, you couldn't get heated seats if you got the Performance Pack option.

    They still existed was my point. You could get a pretty well optioned gt500 between the nav, shaker, stock seats with heat and glass roof.

    I beg to differ.. you have the GT500
    confused with the Boss 302... which was no frills! Believe me I know! ;)
    Unless Ford offers a stripper version, the new GT500 will have all those options available too.

    Now go back and do a search for the '07-'12 GT500 options. I forgot about the glass roof, but you couldn't get Shaker 1000 and Nav. It was either one or the other. There were no heated seats available at all. Forget about cooled seats. (All that extra fluff must be why people consider the '13/'14 the second coming.)

    I'm not excited, but the hood does look kinda cool.

    Surprised they don't do more "scale"-like styling instead of catfish-face.

    Lol, some offense meant by this in a friendly way, read what I said.

    I was simply day dreaming. I wasn’t implying the car would end up with an aluminum body or carbon roof. Other performance coupes have gone these routes with good success. The car can be built with all the tech and power and performance while hitting a 3750lbs weight, but it would add $5k of material cost to each car so $10-20k on the sticker.

    Forget any large amount of carbon, they got way too much push back from dealers originally with the carbon and price point of 83 to 85k...they need to be able to sell these against Chevy and Dodge.

    New 2018 Challenger Hellcat with 8 speed auto with barely any options comes in around $71K. I would expect the next GT500 to MSRP $67-69K base with manual and keep climbing in price from there. Fully optioned probably around $78-80K. This price point would be on par with Dodge and Chevrolet.

    Price point I mentioned was original with a lot of carbon. Due to pushback, some carbon was removed and price point is around 73 to 75k optioned out.

    Wait.

    Are you saying the dealers are setting the price point on these cars?

    Push back from dealers? No.

    We're selling the hell out of $80k+ Super Duties and Expeditions.

    Who's your source on that nonsense?
