2007 GT/CS Info Posted on Mustang Source

Not sure if anyone else caught this and posted this but I don't see it and the site says it was updated Sunday 1/15 so here it goes.

Mustang Source is reporting the GT/CS for 2007.


The biggest for 2007 is that the Shelby Cobra GT500--unveiled at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show--will be available in Summer 2006 as a 2007 model as both a coupe and convertible. It will be powered by a supercharged 5.4L V8 making at least 475 horsepower. It will use a 6-speed manual transmission and will have 18x9" wheels front and back. The front tires will be 255s and the backs will be 285s.
Also for 2007, a GT/CS (California Special) will be available with a GT/CS tape stripe, hood scoop, side scoops, and a unique front fascia. Inside, the GT/CS will have heated two-tone black and grey leather and suede seats and the rearview mirror will have an integrated compass. An intake cover will dress up the engine bay. The GT/CS will be available nationwide as either a coupe or convertible. An early color list revealed that Alloy Grey, Performance White, Vista Blue, Tungsten Grey, Valencia Orange, Colorado Red, and Ebony will be options on the 2007 Mustang. That's seven colors; I'm sure there will be at least 10.

Here are links to the main site and the timeline page.

Does anyone find it a little odd that Ford wouldn't wait one more year to release the GT/CS, making it an '08? Do you think they are they releasing it with Shelby to give all those people who want a Shelby but can't afford one something to buy? If so, wouldn't the GT be more in line with that thinking?

It'll be interesting to see the price points Ford establishes with the GT, GT/CS, and Shelby. Price may have a big role in how well the GT/CS sells vs the others.

So, who is going to drive their '68 GT/CS to the local dealerships to test drive the '07? That will be fun.

I would assume the CS will not be a high dollar option. I agree it could be the poor mans Shelby (again). I have a feeling they will do the CS for more than one year. I hope I am wrong but if Ford does not make the CS way different looking from the regular Mustang it might not sell very well.

Now if they make cool side scoops, rear wing and maybe something else that makes it way different from the regular Mustang it will sell pretty good.

My wife has been hinting that a new car is in order after our other car is paid off in August. I've been ignoring her. This might just be a good compromise so I just emailed her suggesting that we look at buying an '07 to go with the '68.

Did anyone ever find out how or when Ford will unveil the new GT/CS and if they need originals for the enveiling? I remember there was a thread about a month ago about a photo shoot. Did that ever happen?

No thanks, but I might TiVo it so I can fast forward through all endzone dancing nonsense.

Is Janet Jackson going to have a wardrobe malfunction in the back seat of the new GT/CS?

I'm not a Superbowl fan either, but I'll Tivo it if there is going to be a commercial for the GT/CS. Is this a sure thing?? It may even get me to watch it. I sure hope they changed the rear end of the regular mustang in the CS. That's the best looking part!

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

yesterday there were spy photos posted on that website and another. today they are removed stating due to copyright issues with ford they had to be removed from the site. luckily i had downloaded them yesterday, unfortunately i can't post them on this site because the copyright is printed all over the pictures and i don't want to cause any waves with ford motor. the photos weren't the greatest angles but not bad. the coupe in the foreground is white with a roush style hood scoop, the gt/cs decal is on the front fender with the black stripe running along the door and fading into the scoop. i read that the scoops were non-functional. it also had a spoiler (wing type) on the back decklid. it has a five spoke rim. round fog-lights in the grille. the convertible was in the background, but not much of it.
