Might as well man-up and get the GT350R package with all the bells and whistles then.

Tech package was $7500.
Comp package was $6500 I think.
But the packages were exclusive. One or the other.

Basically it brought the car to a 55k-56k MSRP. Kinda where it sits now.

Now the add-on packages are $3k on the base MSRP which is about 56k.

So if you want a GT350 with the electronics package (Nav & stuff) its a $59k car now.

GT350R starts at 64k as before, and has a 3k electronics package. So they are 67k loaded.

Plus we still deal with the ADMs from the stealers. Schaumburg Ford has a gray one they want $20k over for. So $75k

If you're okay with spending $40k, what's $7500 more?

Pretty sure I remember thinking to myself the GT350 was surprisingly "affordable" when it came out.

Not so much anymore as I think a lot of what makes the GT350 is its a raw car. Who gives a shit about the creature comforts listen to that engine and smile!

But hey at the end of the day at least its not umm...... well.... lets just say 75k like the 5th gen Z28.....



5th Gen Z28 shall forever be remembered as an over priced scam because it wears a Z28 badge.

The problem was you couldn't listen to the engine Humm for long. It would get the trans hot, on non track pack cars, and would put the car in limp mode.

Magnetic ride control is a huge advantage to that car. I was surprised to see they offered a non magnetic control suspension on the car at all.

If you want a drag car, save money and buy A GT. Put that money you saved on buying a GT into cams, headers and a tune. It will make similar power to the GT350. Or add a blower and go quicker.

The GT350 is a handling car, let it be the best one it can be.

The items that made the car the most suited for the track were the oil coolers, spoiler, strut brace and magnetic suspension, which only came with the optional track pack.

And? id rather have the cheaper version because that 7500ish would pay for a blower...... whats better than a flat plane crank 5.2 eargasm? easy a supercharged voodoo eargasm!

ohh and id sure love to know how many people track them on a road course.......

ill bet its less than half.

boost makes everything better

sorry man not buying the markup bullshit why take away the option of a stripped down car?

if people want a loaded one they can option it out themselves.

There's probably more of them on a track than you think. Wait a few years and you'll see them coming up for sale either with no miles and perfect, or caged and tracked. The 2000 cobra r is like that.

im not doubting alot are tracked but do you think over 50% of all gt350s sold are on a road course?

doubt it.

its a novelty for people to say they own a gt350 or an escalade or a hellpig no difference here.

stand behind the belief why should it ONLY be option 7500 more than the previous model year.

know how many road courses are within like 500 miles of me? a total of 1.

but ive seen 3 in person.

baffles me some people accept the price hike with a smile.....

anyone can option one for a fully loaded model why should the 7500 mark up me mandatory?

hey anyone wanna buy my 2016 for a 7500 markup?

save some money on a gt how its a completely different engine..........



just saying.

guess lethal is doing it wrong since they slapped a blower on a gt350?

know how to save money on a gt350? easy buy one that doesnt have the 7500 markup and options.

ohh wait cant do that anymore.......

ohh and as for the mag control wouldnt a hardcore road racer dump the mag ride for a coilover setup so why start out with a more expensive car then ditch the expensive mag ride setup?

or are you saying the mag ride is the end all be all for a road course?

why not start out with a car that has about 100 hp more and use the markup money on a blower or heads and cam or 7500 into the suspension?

comparing it to a gt is silly the bigggest factor between the 2 is the different engine!

lets not forget the gt350 has a better manual trans too than the gt.

mag ride is really nice on a vehicle that can be driven comfortably on the street, and hard on the track. the suspension works well, and unless it's going to be an all out track car only there really isn't a reason to swap mag ride out

right so at the same time why buy a fully loaded car when all you want is the engine and transmission and slap a blower on it with the difference in price?

we will see what the used prices look like, but if the 13/14 gt500 shows us anything it's that the gt350 is going to be pulling retail prices for the next 3 years. Especially those now very rare 15 base ones.

We have a white 17 gt350 coming in with blue stripes I'm really considering buying. I don't see these gt350s going down in value

Well, the people who buy these cars spoke loudly enough for Ford to make the Track Package standard. And mag ride is much more than a comfort option.

Yeah me either. And with this hike now for the track pack, it's adding more fuel to the fire making them more desirable.

You should be able to get yours at cost no?
