    Looking for turbo or supercharged S550. I am in Fort Worth and would like to find one within 400 or 500 miles. Only looking to spend around $26,000. Auto or manual, just not too many miles. I know they are out there somewhere. I missed out on a 2016 with a Whipple for $26,000 a few months ago in San Antonio with low miles and clean title. Just starting to look after selling my TVS2300 2007 GT/CS last week.
    Thanks!

    Did you see the low mile Hellion car on Houston Craigslist? He's had it for sale for a long while and is down to $32.5K.

    Good luck. I would beware of most anything that you are going to touch on your budget.

    There is a 2017 Lebanon Ford car with the Roush stage 1 kit for $28,000 out there right now so I think if I am patient the right one will come along. But it’s grabber blue and never been a fan of that color.

    OK, I would go higher for a 2017 or newer with low miles. I just missed out on a 2018 Kona blue GT with a Roush supercharger at a local Ford dealer that went for just over $29,000, only had 20,000 miles, lasted less than 24 hours on their lot. Prefer Kona blue, deep impact blue, dark metallic gray, even orange, and has to have leather. No red, silver, white or yellow. Not in a hurry at all, willing to wait for the right car. The Lebanon Ford car only lasted a few days. Have a good one!

    They didn’t have any history on the car as far as who tuned it or anything about who did all of the work. The dealer was honest which was nice. But not the car for me. I can wait for the right one, that is how I picked up my 2007 in 2012.

    I would love to go pick up the one from Mr. Crumpler. Wow, very nice but too much for me.

    I think this will be typical of most cars at dealerships, but good luck regardless. If I happen across any that seem good, I'll forward to you...

    Haven’t found anything yet but have renewed hope. A guy on the Coyote classsifieds on FB just listed (and did sell right away) a red 2018 GT base model with a Whipple, half shafts, full suspension, 10R80 auto, ran 6.20s in the 1/8, for $29,000. Car only had 32,000 miles and a clean title in Tennessee. I just need to find the right color and maybe a year or two older to fit my budget so will be patient. I found a deep impact blue 6R80 Kenne bell mammoth equipped 2015 in OKC but it has 52,000 miles and not much else done for $29,995. That seems high for 4 year old car with miles. I will go higher for the right car. Still hoping I can find a nice Kona Blue 2016 or 2017.

    Hoot12, I knew yours would be out of my range. Drove all the way to OKC a few weeks ago to test drive a 2015 with a Kenne Bell but the car had issues. So still looking!
    Any full bolt on naturally aspirated cars with suspension work would also work. Looking for a nice 11 second car that I can also take to the Motorsport Ranch road course to have some fun.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    I haven't listed my 2016 Kenne Bell car for sell yet, but it has no issues other than a small area on the hood where the paint bubbled up (common issue with the aluminum hood). Pulls like a freight train. Never had it on the dyno and never been to the track, but it has the KB 800 hp package and was tuned by Lund. Here's the mods - KB blower, KB bap, auto, ati balancer, FRP shocks/struts, Steeda Ultralight springs, BC Racing wheels (very expensive wheels that do have some scuffing but easily fixed - have stock wheels and tires too), Michelin MPSS, Solo Thunder cat-back. I'm not very close to you and the car has 40k miles on her, but she's never had any issues at all. Looking to get $26k for her. cat=105&_nc_ohc=xLYCXeogiCcAQlNAryA5X5A7ZCQxHBBdGB44yvBDmsCFtSxkI87pHNgGw&_nc_ht=scontent-ort2-2.jpg

    Forgot mention that mine is a fully loaded premium car, leather, nav, heated/cooled seats, 9 speaker stereo with infiniti door speakers and an amp and mini subs mounted where the crappy rear speakers were.

    Wow, Brian Z., perfect car underneath, except it’s just not the color. When I see a deep impact or kona blue one I stop in my tracks. Wonder how much it would be for a kona blue wrap...Ha! Regardless, doubt you will have any problems selling it.

    OK, WHAT is going on with 2018 to 2019 GTs? I have seen multiple cars at McDavid Ford here in Fort Worth that have a branded title showing they are Lemon/Buyback from the manufacturer. Then was looking at a kona blue 2018 at a dealer in Illinois at Heller Ford with the same thing on the AutoCheck report. Is it engine or trans? Seems to have be both automatics and manuals so thinking it must be engine, maybe the Ford tick.
