Well, it has finally been said. To hell with you Focus and Fusion buyers.
Note to Ford: The Mustang has plenty of emotional pull, but is actually a design relic now.
"One tier of our strategy is personalized performance. This is the fastest growing part of the enthusiast market and it includes vehicles with upgraded power, performance and appearance. Next is SVT and products like the Ford Shelby GT500. Our plan is to offer one performance Mustang and one performance truck in our lineup going forward.". . . Mark Fields

Seeing they mentioned SVT, how current is this info, since SVT is defunct now?

So let me guess, optional aftermarket but re-badged performance upgrades that cost more through Ford and it's dealers than it does independently? Haha.....[:p]

The gt500 has SVT emblems on it. NO ford badges. I really don't know what the hell ford is doing... I don't think they even know themselves.

Any of you New Yorkers that get a chance to go to the show, see if you can get a chance to hit up the reps from Ford about the MkII Focus. We need to keep pressuring them and letting them know we are a force to be reckoned with.

cobras never had ford badges on them only the cobra bardge and svt, so i makes sense thatthe gt500 would be the same. they dont need badges everyone knows its a ford.
