2016 Shelby GT350 Planned With High-Revving V8
#1
Recent rumors had Ford dropping the Shelby GT500 for the next-generation Mustang, and now it appears that the American automaker will introduce a Shelby GT350 one year after the new Mustang debuts in 2015.

That means for the time being, the Cobra moniker won’t be revived, but the Shelby GT350 will be an official Ford factory model. Unfortunately, details are light on the next-generation Mustang and the Shelby GT350 variant, but it will be naturally aspirated powered by a V8. The powerplant is expected to be high-revving and derived from the GT’s 5.0-liter Coyote engine, but will feature a higher displacement and be significantly more powerful. It won’t be as powerful as this generation’s GT500 with 662 hp, but it’ll see impressive gains over the expected 450 hp from the GT. Ford is also expected to use plenty of carbon fiber on the GT350 to help free up some weight.

As for other surprises Ford has in the works, a Mach 1 model is planned for introduction in 2017. Like in the past, expect the Mach 1 model to be a collectible, special-edition car.

I guess it is time to seriously start putting some money back in the piggy bank!
