A leaked Ford document confirms that the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 will continue to be marketed. It will have the same specifications as its previous generation but will have a new color palette and some minor changes. An R variant will also be available, and its debut might be at the 2017 New York Auto Show.
This internal Ford document was leaked by a forum member with the handle Mustang6G. It clearly reads the description of the brand regarding upcoming changes, which were limited to the color palette. This likely means that the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 will remain the same, but with new colors to choose from.
These new colors have not been announced yet. According to the same document, it will be disclosed next year, although previous reports suggest that it might be Lead Gray, Foot Gray, Orange Fury and Blue Kona, according to MotorAuthority.
The leaked document communicated with dealers who may be interested in having the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 in its catalog of vehicles. What it does not mention is what the future of the model will be beyond 2017, as rumors and reports from TorqueNews have cirulcated that this year will be its last.
This is because Ford is now working on the development of the 2017 Shelby Mustang GT500, a model that has been caught several times in testing, which means that the best is yet to come. In recent weeks, spy photos as well as a website leak suggest its arrival.
According to the latest reports, the future GT500 will be available as both a coupe and convertible. People are already excited to see it, but it is unlikely that it will be presented in 2017 given that next year, the 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 will remain the tip Launch of the Mustang range. The GT500 will be presented in late 2017 at the earliest, and its production will not start until the middle of 2018.
