Ford to build another 350 GTs through 2022

by Justin King

The flagship supercar will become a bit less rare than its original 1,000-unit production limit.

Ford has announced plans to extend the flagship GT production run by a few years, tossing the original 1,000-unit limit.

The company now plans to keep the assembly line rolling through 2022, enough time to build 350 more units.

"The response to our Ford GT has been unprecedented, with initial demand outstripping supply by more than six-to-one," says Ford Performance director Hermann Salenbauch. "By extending the Ford GT production run for a limited period, we're able to maintain the exclusivity of the ultra-desirable supercar while offering the ownership experience to a greater number of customers."

The company is again requiring prospective buyers to submit applications that will be thinned down to the 350 most hardcore Ford fans and existing owners of previous-generation GTs.

For those who are selected from the expected crowd, their cars will not arrive until 2020 at the earliest.
