    Deliveries of Ford GTs Will Be Running Somewhat Late


    Deliveries of the Ford GT have been going since February, but various issues have caused Ford to notify owners that their GTs will be running somewhat late.

    Automotive News reports that owners got a letter this week from Ford saying delivery of their GT will be pushed back due to supplier constraints and homologation testing issues.

    "The craftsmanship required to build these vehicles for global markets has required that we adjust our original timing projections," the letter says. 

    The letter goes on to say customers will be notified with an updated "three-month projected delivery window" within the week. Ford declined to say how long the delays will be, telling Automotive News, that it "nearly completed" the ramp-up process.

    According to a spokesman, Ford has delivered about 50 GTs out of the 250 models that will be built through the 2020 model year.

    While I love the look of the GT and think it is an awesome auto, I have to question the business case of building over 3 years only 250 of these cars. Honestly, the Corvette beats this hands down for the money, performance and production. I see this car costing Ford more than it gains as a Halo car.

    It is Friday, not going to slut shame either car maker for their choices...but I can tell you I would take a Jag F type over either the Ford GT or the Corvette.  To each his own!

    As much as I would be disappointed to have to wait, if I was lucky enough to make 'the cut', I would want to the car to be right.  But, even I would be considering my options if it gets pushed any further down the road.

    if you're purchasing a 500k car, I don't think too many will be disappointed with a wait because they ought to have some other fun vehicles to drive in the mean time. Heck, I bet a good portion of them have last gen GT's as well.

    If one ponders to cancel one's order, or actually does cancel one's order on a car of this caliber (a hand-made exotic that only a handful are to be made) for delivery delays (because of whatever reason), then one wasnt that excited for it to begin with.

    This is how I sees it and so this issue is a non-story for me...

    Cars of this caliber (hand-made exotics that only a handful are to be made) sometimes run into snafus like this. It is to be expected. 

    I dont think one would like his $500 000 Ford end up like this
