Hello All! I have a 2017 GT350R chassis HR687. Does anyone have the final breakdown on the 2017 production number totals and production of each specific model and option pkgs yet? Ford SVT told me there were 942 R's made and about 6000 GT's. Also, what is a good street tire to run on an R since no other company makes the R rear tire size? Can I run the front tire size on the rear of the R? I have seen phohot of guys running the 325-30-19 on the rear but it looks too large for the wheel well. I wanted to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. Thanks!

@Biggest for a 2017 anything between 5 and 10 over is a good price but you'll have tough time finding the color you want. Popular color/stripes combo can easily go for 15/20 over. I'm not sure if I would even try to buy a 2018. Being the last production year I'd be surprised to see anything below 20 over sticker. My advice is to be patient and keep calling around all over the country. I got mine at 7 over sticker out of pure luck. Every single dealer that I spoke with before finding mine would not go below 15. All you need is one lucky situation where they are trying to get rid of it

@  panzer69 : (29 January 2018 - 01:15 PM)

yeah i agree with that, my dealer is selling his 60k above

I have one on hold in New Jersey, Black with white stripe and electronic package, MSRP is $68020, I have not found one at MSRP so my question is whats a good/decient price on a 2017? Thanks

I got to attend the 2017 Runway challenge at the Mojave Air and Space Port for some timed runs up to 1.5 miles.  I had not entered the event, but the event organizers (really cool dudes) said "we don't have any mustang representation," why don't you wheel that Shelby up and we'll give you a number.  Hell yes!!!!!  


But, I had this problem:  the hood has an aerodynamic flaw: at speed, it lifts up at the outer edges.  I actually had a photographer come up and show me the pictures - there was clearly a 1-2" gap between the hoods and fenders. This seems like a design flaw.  Any one else experienced this?


Here are the runs:

230 MPH? That's insane.


Anyways, yes the hood does lift a bit above 100 but I think they mitigated the problem for the MY 2017. The fastest I went with mine was around 140 (on a racetrack) and it was barely noticeable.

I have a issue with my hood too. The drivers side fits almost perfectly ..... the passenger side where it meets the fende over the headlamp is a good 1/2 inch off ... higher ... 


I have the same concern if i get up to high speeds if I would have the issue too .


I am also afraid of having our body shop touch it for making things worse
