PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Applicants and fans of the Ford GT can rejoice as Ford Performance is
adding two more years of production for the all-new carbon fiber
supercar. The announcement comes on the heels of letters sent to
potential customers notifying them of their application status to
purchase the car.


The additional production supports the recent decision by Ford
Performance to race Ford GT in both IMSA and World Endurance
Championship (WEC) series events for four years.

“While we can’t build enough Ford GTs for everyone who has applied, we
are going to produce additional vehicles in an effort to satisfy more of
our most loyal Ford ambassadors,” says Dave Pericak, global director,
Ford Performance. “We want to keep Ford GT exclusive, but at the same
time we know how vital this customer is to our brand.”

Year three of production will support applicants who were placed on the
wait list; previously deferred applicants and those who missed the
initial application window will be served by production year four. The
application process for fourth-year production will reopen in early
2018. Those who already applied to own the car will only need to update
their request.

“Ford GT has racing in its blood,” says Raj Nair, Ford executive vice
president, product development, and chief technical officer. “The road
car and race car will live on, side-by-side, for the next four years –
providing ample opportunity to test and prove innovative new
technologies both on and off the track.”
