'Would have no effect on my own darned self, sir. I'm not a "group think" kinda guy.If it wins at Le Mans you might change your opinion of a V6
I totally disagree, Ray. I believe Ford will easily sell every "V6" GT the boys up in Canada can build for them - no matter its price - for all the resons others have already mentioned...as well as a couple others.I’m feeling lucky reading through this thread. All the potential buyers bowing out because of the turbo V6 will make all the unfortunate dealers forced to put the GT on their lots really discount the price.
A 24 month lease at $350 a month?
It may level out the spike in rising prices due to less people being in the market for the 5/6 models - but I seriously doubt that the net values of the 5/6 will be impacted at all.I wonder how the new ones will effect the values of the existing 05/06 F GTs...
I have my own theory, but....
The most inspiring part of the new GT is that it appears Ford started this process a long time ago, and the plan has been to win LeMans in class the first outing at the 50th. And if they can do that - which is no mean feat - it won't matter if the GT is powered by a family of lemmings.One million for a V6 Ford in the same ring as V12s, V10s, as well as N/A and turbo V8s? I don't think so. If it was the only supercar on the market then sure but there are a lot of equals out there now and even greater cars to come that no exclusivity is going to overcome. Its new and it does have some very unique design cues that have the market abuzz right now. By the time it gets in here 2016 things will have moved on. It won't be yesterdays new by any stretch but it's also not going to be a million dollar car in the real market. Sure, someone will spend it at auction in some boozed infused vulgar display of wealth and the troglodytes will point to that as a true market representation just as they do with the Ford GT now. It is a fine looking machine. Too bad it will be forever hamstrung with the stigma of it's V6 power.
