We at Brown Motors have been eagerly anticipating the North American International Auto Show for the resolution of so many rumors floating around. The latest one, a Ford GT successor debuting in Detroit, has our ears perked.
We already know the Focus RS will be appearing in January at the Auto Show, but sources say a replacement for the GT could also be arriving. Before you imagine a beastly, thirty-cylinder engine roaring under the hood, we should tell you the anticipated heart of the new model will be a V6 EcoBoost.
Many are curious if Ford will be able to achieve the 600 horsepower it intends to out of such a modest engine. But, if the automaker intends to return to Le Mans in the future, a production version of the needed GTE-class vehicle would be needed.
If you’re not a fan of this news, don’t worry, you probably won’t encounter the GT’s replacement very often on the streets— potentially only 1,200 productions units will be released. If you are a fan, you’d better get your piggy banks ready and keep watching for more news on the release of this potential model.
