Ford GT Production Hits A Snag, Deliveries To Be Delayed

Customers can hardly wait to get their hands on the new Ford GT but the automaker has revealed it will have to delay the delivery of a handful of models.

According to Automotive News, Ford is suffering from supplier constraints and homologation testing issues as part of its effort to ramp up production.

The company reportedly sent a letter to buyers earlier this week saying “The craftsmanship required to build these vehicles for global markets has required that we adjust our original timing projections.” The letter went on to say the company will soon provide an updated three-month delivery window.

The delay will likely prove disheartening to potential owners but the issue appears relatively minor as the company told the publication the ramp-up process is nearly complete.

Ford has already delivered around 50 GTs and once the process is complete, the automaker should be able to build at least one GT every day.

Despite the delays, we’re sure owners won’t mind once they get their hands on the model which features a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that produces 647 hp (482 kW) and 550 lb-ft (744 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which enables the supercar to hit a top speed of 216 mph (347 km/h).

    The silver and blue colors look pretty good, but I am really digging that dark candy apple red.

      Don’t care for the design of the car, but that dark red is just gorgeous, especially with the silver stripes.

    Quality issues ??? Low reliability ?

    • Bob White

      Not at all. There are very specialized, very limited production components going in that car. With many being hand built.

      • Michelin

        Yes, very limited production !!! 50 cars ….
        FORD annonces à lot of orders of GT, in this way buyers will receive their car next century.

          This isn’t a cookie cutter car. Total production announced of 1000 with a possible 1500 built in Ontario Canada by a premier F1 supplier.

          Are you a little sour because you’re not on the very exclusive list or that you can’t afford one?

    Finally a ford I would really like to have. The performance is very good, comparable to a top McLaren, though it’s a lot more money, and it’s really tiny inside the passenger compartment. Glad to see Ford doing it right for a change.

    With very little modification, this chassis is capable of 240 mph, highly stable high-speed platform. Ford gets top marks for the aero design.

    Very cool car, although I’m not a huge fan, and that maroon color is by far my favorite color on it.

    As far as delays? Well, I’ll just say, I’m sure the other owners are glad JAY LENO got his!! Cause, damn….

  • Over promising & Under delivering = Bad combination

    Just get an NSX

    Just can’t get enough of Ruby red. Such a beautiful color. This is such a badass car, of all the super and hyper cars out there, I want this one. Simplistic interior, physical knobs, clean design.
