2017 Ford GT Deliveries Delayed

Those select few buyers that finally received the opportunity to purchase the long-awaited 2017 Ford GT will be waiting a little longer before they can take delivery. Ford delayed delivery of GTs following supplier constraints and homologation testing matters as part of a lengthy production ramp-up. Ford sent a letter to Ford GT prospect owners saying: “The craftsmanship required to build these vehicles for global markets has required that we adjust our original timing projections.”
So far Ford has not given an exact indication of how long it may take for the GTs to finally get delivered. The letter did say that customers waiting for their GT will be provided with an updated 'projected delivery window'. Ford started production of the $450,000 supercar in December 2016 at its Markham plant in Ontario. So far the automaker has delivered around 50 GTs and plans to limit production to 250 examples per year before ceasing production in the 2020 model year.
