2017-09-21: First drive: Ford GT

What's the news?

Ford, which has recently come under fire for its allocation of GTs, has announced that it will extend the production run of the new supercar for an additional two years.

So, will I be able to get one?

Chances are, if you haven't already been told that you're on the reserve list, you aren't going to be getting your hands on a Ford GT anytime soon. Dave Pericak, Global Performance, Ford Performance, said: "While we can't build enough Ford GTs for everyone who has applied, we are going to produce additional vehicles in an effort to satisfy more of our most loyal Ford ambassadors. We want to keep Ford GT exclusive, but at the same time we know how vital this customer is to our brand."

Who is going to get this next batch of cars then?

According to Ford Performance, the third year of production will be used to support applicants already on the waiting list. Those who had been previously deferred and those who missed out on the initial allocation will be served by the fourth year of production.

Anything else?

In addition to extending the production run, Ford Performance has confirmed that it will continue to race the Ford GT in the IMSA and WEC championships through to the 2019 season.
