I'm sure some of you have picked it up. But those of us who haven't... there's an article on the future of SVT. Two confirmed models...

Shelby Mustang and the SVT Fusion

Speculations: Explorer... and maybe... maybe... using the new C1 platform and the new RS to create a new SVT focus.... maybe... DAMN.

The head of SVT said that a new SVT Focus is a possibility but it would still be in the far future so no reason to stop modding yet guys. At least be glad that they are thinking about it again.

This month's SVT Enthusiast magazine has an in-depth article on the 2007 Shelby Cobra GT500. They said it will be the next SVT Cobra, but they will give Carroll his dues. They also said to look out for the Adrenalin Sport Trac (all wheel drive 390 Horse SUT. (Yes SUT, not SUV)

Here's a quote

"The Adrenalin and GT500 both represent the tip of the proverbial under-the-surface iceberg. Look for more hot Mustang variations and (at last) an all-new SVT Lightning, among other exciting developments, relatively soon." page 26 Volume 8 Issue 2.

So, get your napkins or drool cups ready. Woohoo!!!

glad to see they are rethinking the lightning. It would be sad that Ford trucks (the worlds) best selling vehicle being out performed by dudge.
