first in class.

Fair to say the new GT500 will have the same garbage build quality as did the GT350. I sold my 16' GT350 TP predominately due to the many quality issues it had. Fun car, poorly built.

That’s MSRP. There will be significant ADM’s...at least to start. Then it’ll be like every other Stang.

This is fair, if you were buying the car for a P car level of interior. This car would be twice the price. You buy these cars because of the value. The interior isn't as awful as to part ways with it, in my opinion.

I had no issues with the interior at all. It was the actual build quality. Poor fitting body panels (front fenders to hood and bumper cap), saggy rear bumper cap, various bits of dirt in the paint, overspray (from black painted roof) on drivers c-pillar, ripples in the metal on the passenger c-pillar that bothered me. In this day and age, there is no excuse for build quality like this at any price point IMO. I laugh at the tacky 'Built with Pride UAW' stickers Ford affixes to so many of their vehicles. Should read "Built like Shit'. The GT350 does offer great performance value, that does not excuse it from being built without some inherent quality however.

Still Team ZL1/ ZL1 1LE all day since you can still get a manual.

They fixed my hood to fender gap and there is a fix for the bumper issue. Ford's really improved in this area, but they sure do need to keep getting better.

I keep getting excited by what FCA/GM/Ford are putting out performance wise. They're all offering big power options, in a bunch of configurations and most models still have a manual. Only one left doing that overseas is BMW and Porsche.
