Rumor: Is There a 2015 Shelby GT500 Coming?


2015 Shelby GT500

Parts found on Ford’s website for the 2015 Mustang hint at there being a 2015 Shelby GT500; could this be true? The rampant speculation surrounding the S550 Mustang chassis has been working overtime for the SVT/Shelby options. We know we are getting a Shelby GT350 and have already seen the badging for it, but could we be getting a Shelby GT500 as well?

GT500 Parts Found on Ford Parts

Initially posted by a Mustang6G forum member, a link to fordparts.com showed 2015 Ford Mustang parts for a Shelby GT500. Directly from the horse’s mouth, there is a parts description for a quarter window with the parts description specifying it is for “North American Markets” and “Shelby Cobra GT500” which raises a lot of questions. 

Before you simply dismiss it as a replacement part for a 2013 – 2014 Shelby GT500, remember that the S550 is a brand new Mustang that has been completely redesigned, which means parts like that would not cross over. Make no mistake, it is not for the GT350 either as Ford has already leaked those badges with confirmation for the new 5.2L Voodoo Engine. It makes us wonder what exactly Ford is planning for 2015.

Nurburgring SVT Testing

A few months ago, enthusiasts got to see some of the very first videos of the SVT Shelby model testing at the Nurburgring. Two different models of Mustangs have been seen testing at the Nurburgring, identifiable by their wheels and camo, ripping around the track and even loosing control. The two different models were speculated to be two versions of the GT350, one being a ‘R’ version that is more track oriented. There has been a shift in thought though, with a growing voice saying that the other model is possibly a Shelby GT500. Given how much faster the one Mustang is than the other it is entirely plausible that we are seeing two completely different versions of the Mustang, not just trims.

2015 Shelby GT500 Engine Options

There have been numerous reports from a variety of anonymous insiders saying that the Condor Engine (Shelby motor) assembly line has been shut down/dismantled. This has lead to mass reporting that there will be no more Shelby GT500, or at least for the 2015/2016 model year. However, the fact that the Condor Engine Line is gone does not mean we might not see a GT500. There are a few other options laying on the table that would all make great options for a 2015 Shelby GT500.

Boosted 5.0 Coyote Motor

The 5.0L coyote motor is an amazing motor that is capable of seemingly endless feats. Granted, in base GT form it has some areas of vulnerability, but nothing that forged rods, crank, and pistons could not solve. The coyote motor has been a tried and tested motor for Ford, seen in various applications and vehicles with different technical specifications. A built 5.0L with a Ford Racing Blower would be easily capable of high 600 HP to mid 700 HP power output. This engine option for a Shelby would arguably be the most cost efficient one.

Boosted 5.2L Voodoo Motor

Ford has spent a lot of time and a lot of money doing research and development on their new Shelby GT350 Voodoo Motor and they still are not done. While it remains to be seen if there will be a flat-plane crankshaft, we are slowly starting to get a better idea of what the 5.2L engine will be, which subsequently asks the question of what other vehicles will we see it in? With the possibility of there being a 2015 Shelby GT500 comes the possibility of seeing a boosted, big power, Voodoo engine make its way under the hood. For NA applications they are projected to be making well north of 500HP/TQ, so with a little bit of boost via a supercharger we could expect to see that number go deep into the 700HP range.

Twin Turbo 5.0 From the Cobra Jet

A few years ago Ford unveiled a Cobra Jet concept vehicle which sported a 5.0L featuring a twin turbo setup. Unfortunately nothing ever came of the TT Cobra jet, however that technology is still around. Not to dissimilar to what was mentioned above about a boosted 5.0L coyote motor, a TT 5.0L coyote engine would be a very cost effective way to make big, reliable power. In the past Ford has teased the public with concept cars/engines that showed up later in one way or another in production vehicles. With Ford’s push on the EcoBoost concept, taking a motor that has been developed and tested and adding turbos on to it is the most likely scenario for a Shelby GT500.

10th Anniversary Cobra?

Also making a special appearance on the Ford Parts website were a few random parts labeled ’10th Anniversary Cobra’ which only adds to the mystery and speculation. As much as I wish it was for an anniversary edition of the 2003 – 2004 Cobra like Bama’s 03 Cobra, that ten year mark has already passed. However, we are coming up on the 10th Anniversary of the Shelby GT500 in 2017, which is when there is supposed to be a refresh for the S550 Mustang. Ford refers to the GT500 as the Shelby Cobra GT500, which keeps in line with these leaked parts.

Back when the S197 initially was released, the Shelby GT500 made it’s appearance the first year of the S197’s production in 2005. Even though it was not until 2007 when the Shelby GT500 was available for purchase, the public got a glimpse of it in 2005. This leads many people to believe that the Shelby GT500 will return in 2017.

A lot is still uncertain; production of the 2015 Mustang has just begun and we are still waiting for them to arrive on dealer lots. As far as SVT/Shelby vehicles, we know the GT350 is on it’s way with a possible reveal coming up on September 19th. There is growing evidence that we are going to be getting a Shelby GT500 which is having people wonder when we may see it and more importantly, what engine will it have? We have heard before that Ford was working on a Shelby GT500 more powerful than the Dodge Challenger Hellcat so could this be it? Are these some of the first parts being produced for it?

What engine would you want to see in a GT500? Do you think a GT500 is on its way? Or did Ford just mislabel some of their parts?

  1. TT 5.0 please. And it seems logical and not a huge tall for Ford to make possible. Drop an aluminator in it and put some turbos on it. The setup will be safe. The hard part will be making everything fit the way they probably want. As good as the Armageddon and Helion setups look under the hood. I don’t see Ford releasing it like that.

  3. Yes the GT500 is definitely on it’s way. Ford wouldn’t mislabel parts to that extent. And because of all of the backlash of the 707 hp Challenger Hellcat, which is good for us, Ford isn’t going to stand idly by and just let people think that Fiat/Dodge has the most powerful, yet not the quickest or fastest Pony Car. It will have a 2.3L Ford Racing/TVS (instead of the 2.9L Whipple) supercharger on basically the same engine as the current production Cobra Jet race car (the quickest production car ever made, running 8.50 @ 161 mph in the 1/4 mile), just detuned for the street to run on pump gas. It will have a stock Coyote block with forged internals, and a CNC-port-matched intake manifold and the same “Roadrunner” CNC-ported cylinder heads that were on the Boss 302, and Boss 302 cams. Ford is no longer solely using Whipple superchargers for their blown high performance vehicles. The 2.9L Whipple supercharged Cobra Jet makes 836 rwhp (1000 fwhp). The GT500 should make about 750 fwhp on pump gas, and might possibly the first true 10 second 1/4 mile Pony Car ever, tested on a street surface, just like every other car is tested, with no VHT prepped dragstrip like Dodge did. The Fiat/Dodge Challenger 10.97 second run, or whatever it was, was bs, they had drag tires on it, on a fully VHT prepped dragstrip. GT500’s since late 2012 have been running 10’s stock with just MT Drag Radials on a prepped dragstrip, but Ford never lied and tried to convince everyone that the GT500 was a 10 second car from the factory. And Dodge’s 11.2 second “NHRA certified” run was bs also, NHRA does not certify production cars, unless like Ford they have an NHRA tech at the factory that certifies NHRA Race Cars as they come off the assembly line at the Flat Rock Plant in Michigan where all of the factory-built engine, and race car Cobra Jets are built. Then are delivered to the customers who then take them to the track and rip off mid 8 second passes @ 160+ mph. The NHRA only certifies production cars if they are building NHRA class specific cars that will race in Sportsman classes such as Stock and Super Stock Eliminator. And the Hellcat is not that type of car, the NHRA would just laugh at you and hang up the phone. And the Challenger Hellcat, if it did go 11.2 in the 1/4 on factory radials, it was as they have said themselves, on a fully VHT prepped dragstrip, and no NHRA tech would certify anything about that car because it does not come with an NHRA certified roll cage from the factory, and if you go quicker than 11.50 you have to have an NHRA certified roll cage in the car or you will be told you cannot make anymore runs in that car whatsoever until an NHRA certified roll cage is installed. I know from multiple times being told that in multiple Mustangs. So the whole NHRA certified 11.2 second pass thing is bs. It surprised me how much Dodge is lying and misleading their customers about the new Dodge Challenger Hellcat. It’s not quicker or faster than the current GT500 that is still on sale, and they won’t race the 4450 lb Hellcat against the 3840 lb GT500 because they know it’s not faster than the GT500. lbs/hp is less for the GT500 by quite a bit.

      1. Hey Jason Keep Dreaming lol, the 2013 Shelby GT500 Supersnake is the fastest production car today with 850HP doing a quarter mile in 10.2, then you have The Ford Shelby 1000, producing 1250HP no the Hellcat can’t catch it lol, lol

      2. No need to dream. The Super Snake is a tuner car. No different than a Hennessey, or a Lingenfelter. It is NOT a Ford production car. You have to purchase a GT500 then it is sent to Shelby for the Super Snake upgrades.So yes the Hellcat is the fastest and most powerful production muscle car ever!

      3. Jason, you’re part right and part wrong, but mostly wrong!! While in a sense you can call the Shelby a “Tuner” car, you’re partly right, the only difference is, it’s a factory tuner because Ford approves and sanctions all of the parts and components included in those upgrades, therefore it would still be considered for all practical purposes it’s still considered factory power, so in that respect the title most powerful production car stays with the SuperSnake!

        This is not an outside tuner add on firm as Hennessy, Joyride or Technocraft would be considered. And therefore would be covered and warranted by Ford.
        So, in conclusion, you’re wrong in your assessment that the Hellcat is the most powerful production car to date!

      4. Because Ford may approve of a car doesn’t make it a factory car. Yes it comes with a warranty. From Shelby, not Ford. It is a tuner car no different than any other tuner company. Ford has nothing to do with the production of this car. Plus It is cost $40K plus the price of the GT500. I can go to the Dodge Dealer and but a Hellcat. You cant do that with a Super Snake. You have to buy the GT500 then send it to Shelby to have them work the engine over. Not a factory car!

      5. Jason, for one thing, you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about, and I’m not about to entertain a fencing match with someone who doesn’t have his facts straight.

        I admitted straight out that its a tuner car in a respect, but unlike other tuners, Ford is partnered with Shelby in the development of the components used. I have two relatives at Ford, and know the inside scoop on the operation and relationships of Ford and Shelby Group.

        To show you how much you know, the Hellcat will also be considered a tuner car also, because it’ll receive the special touches and attention of the SRT Group, which for all practical purposes is the special performance group under the Chrysler umbrella.

        If you had read what was written instead of spouting off stuff you know nothing about, there would be no need for further explanation!

        (2) To further the fact you don’t know what you’re talking about, you say Ford had nothing to do with Shelby, do you understand how stupid you sound??

        The engines used and available in the SuperSnake Line are developed, engineered and built by Ford, not Shelby, So Ford has a lot to do with the Shelby Product!

        Fact check yourself before you put out a debate!!

      6. My bad I didn’t realize Ford purchased Shelby! Oh wait they didn’t. Ok, so it is a Shelby mustang that is “recognized” by Ford. The engines other tuner use are a lot of time factory engines with mods. Say what you want, Ford as in FoMoCo does not build the Super Snake. Dodge/SRT (same company) builds the hellcat. You can go argue to a wall till your blue in the face. Doesn’t change the fact that it is not a factory built car. Period. Besides I don’t see Ford arguing with Dodge about their claim to being the most powerful muscle car ever. I believe Ford would have something to say about that if Dodges claims were false. I am finished here.

      7. It shows just how well you read, and how ignorant you are Jason, No where in anything you seen or read up here has any notion or suggestion that Ford bought or purchased Shelby.

        It was said that Shelby has always partnered with Ford in engineering and building his vehicles with Ford based components and parts.. Where did you get that stupid crap from??

        It shows your level of knowledge and expertise on the subject!

        Everybody knows that Shelby is a separate entity from Ford, a company in itself, we know that, got it, get past trying to make that point. The point that’s being made to you is, if you could only get it through your knucklehead, that Carroll Shelby is partnered and works closely with Ford to design and engineer the components of his line of vehicles.

        No one said or suggested anything about Ford having purchased Shelby.

        Ford doesn’t have to, or need to argue with Dodge/Mopar about anything, the proof is in the works.. Ford is still owned by Ford… Who and What is Chrysler these days???

        We’ll see how long the Hellcat stays in production!!!

        Sure, you’re gonna pay more for a Shelby, because it’s light years ahead in refinements, handling and overall performance Period!!

        But I have two questions for you, but before I do, let me say this, just because a car doesn’t get assembled from start to finish coming down an actual factory line, that doesn’t disqualify it from being classified as a factory vehicle.
        Now, having said that, I’ll proceed to ask you these two questions!

        (1) where did the vehicles come from that get sent over to Shelby???

        Answer: Ford

        (2) where does the components come from that makes for the Shelby Transformation??

        Answer: Ford

        Shelby, even though is considered a separate entity and operation, for all practical purposes could be deemed a division of Ford, because all components used and installed on the Shelby brand are engineered, produced and sanctioned by Ford.

        So, the Shelby is just as much a factory vehicle as the Hellcat, it’s just a much better one!!

        Jason, I hope you can comprehend this!!! Although it’s probably over your head to understand!!

        The Super Snake is a tuner out of house car. Not a factory hot rod like the Hellcat. If the Super Snake was a factory car, why hasnt Ford Challenged Dodge on their claim as the fastest and most powerful factory muscle car of all time? Thats a bold claim, and I think Ford wouldnt let that statement fly if it wernt true. Case closed. I am sure the next GT500 will be over 700 hp. You will just have to wait to be able to talk smack.

        Your argument, was that Shelby was not a factory Ford produced vehicle!!

        I in turn asked you where did the base vehicle come from that went over to Shelby?? When you can intelligently answer this question, maybe we can finish this discussion.

        The question or controversy was not who supplied Hennesey the vehicles they modify and tune.. They are not the manufacturer of the vehicles.

        I’m gonna end this by saying, Shelby doesn’t manufacture the vehicles that come over for transformation/conversion, but they must come from somewhere?? When you can fill in the blank, you would have answered and settled your own dumb ass theory!!

        Shelby is not a Tuner idiot, it’s an enterprise with a product line, and a product line closely tied to Ford.

        Chrysler is light years behind in the pony car arena, and has got a lot of catching up to do.
        Just because you take a Hemi and stick it in light bodied unrefined chassis such as a Challenger, don’t mean you’ve got the Hottiest thing around.

        A Coyote or Voodoo equipped Mustang would easily kick the Hellcats ass, any day of the week!!

      42. Voodoo huh? First of all they stole that nick name from the 426 Hemi. The hemi in the trucks and R/T’s is a different Hemi than the SRT Hemis. Chrysler has no catching up to do. They are always in the lead. No matter if they are producing the fastest production truck, muscle car or sports car. A 500hp so called “VOODOO” engine wont stand a chance against a Hellcat! Yes there are plenty of engines that will embarrass a Hemi/Hellcat. Lets see..Your looking at Lambos and top end Porsches around a quarter Million dollars.

      43. Jason, it’s ok to be a Dodge/Mopar fan and enthusists, but quit spouting nonsense dude!

        We’re all aware, as you should be, the Hemi also displaces more cubic inches than the engines used in any of the SuperSnakes, but on par are still producing more horsepower. That’s one of the biggest differences you must consider!

        Plus to end this, Jason, I find it laughable to hear you say Dodge is always in the lead in respect to performance, now that’s a joke and a stretch by a couple of miles dude.

        Why is it that Chrysler keeps getting bought off and sold to foreign companies??

        Not to mention, there’s no Chrsyler product(s) representing the company in NASCAR.

        We could go all night with this, but what’s the point?? You should get the message by now!!

        Last but not least Jason!
        The Mustang and Shelbies have been in constant production, and have never stopped, it’s only be in recent years that the Challenger has been back in production!! So, as I said earlier, Chrysler got a lot of catching up to do!!

      44. The NHRA isn’t gonna lie for your honor dude. That Lil Pussy Cat you’re bragging on ain’t got shit on the Factory Ford Cobra Jet which is available straight from Ford!

        Which run in the 8’s all day on pump gas, and that’s a fact!

  4. Yes the GT500 is definitely on it’s way. Ford wouldn’t mislabel parts to that extent. And because of all of the backlash of the 707 hp Challenger Hellcat, which is good for us, Ford isn’t going to stand idly by and just let people think that Fiat/Dodge has the most powerful, yet not the quickest or fastest Pony Car. It will have a 2.3L Ford Racing/TVS (instead of the 2.9L Whipple) supercharger on basically the same engine as the current production Cobra Jet race car (the quickest production car ever made, running 8.50 @ 161 mph in the 1/4 mile), just detuned for the street to run on pump gas. It will have a stock Coyote block with forged internals, and a CNC-port-matched intake manifold and the same “Roadrunner” CNC-ported cylinder heads that were on the Boss 302, and Boss 302 cams. Ford is no longer solely using Whipple superchargers for their blown high performance vehicles. The 2.9L Whipple supercharged Cobra Jet makes 836 rwhp (1000 fwhp). The GT500 should make about 750 fwhp on pump gas, and might possibly the first true 10 second 1/4 mile Pony Car ever, tested on a street surface, just like every other car is tested, with no VHT prepped dragstrip like Dodge did. The Fiat/Dodge Challenger 10.97 second run, or whatever it was, was bs, they had drag tires on it, on a fully VHT prepped dragstrip. GT500’s since late 2012 have been running 10’s stock with just MT Drag Radials on a prepped dragstrip, but Ford never lied and tried to convince everyone that the GT500 was a 10 second car from the factory. And Dodge’s 11.2 second “NHRA certified” run was bs also, NHRA does not certify production cars, unless like Ford they have an NHRA tech at the factory that certifies NHRA Race Cars as they come off the assembly line at the Flat Rock Plant in Michigan where all of the factory-built engine, and race car Cobra Jets are built. Then are delivered to the customers who then take them to the track and rip off mid 8 second passes @ 160+ mph. The NHRA only certifies production cars if they are building NHRA class specific cars that will race in Sportsman classes such as Stock and Super Stock Eliminator. And the Hellcat is not that type of car, the NHRA would just laugh at you and hang up the phone. And the Challenger Hellcat, if it did go 11.2 in the 1/4 on factory radials, it was as they have said themselves, on a fully VHT prepped dragstrip, and no NHRA tech would certify anything about that car because it does not come with an NHRA certified roll cage from the factory, and if you go quicker than 11.50 you have to have an NHRA certified roll cage in the car or you will be told you cannot make anymore runs in that car whatsoever until an NHRA certified roll cage is installed. I know from multiple times being told that in multiple Mustangs. So the whole NHRA certified 11.2 second pass thing is bs. It surprised me how much Dodge is lying and misleading their customers about the new Dodge Challenger Hellcat. It’s not quicker or faster than the current GT500 that is still on sale, and they won’t race the 4450 lb Hellcat against the 3840 lb GT500 because they know it’s not faster than the GT500. The GT500 is 600 lbs lighter than the Hellcat, and since the GT500’s power is also underrated like the Hellcat’s, the GT500 has only 30 less hp than the Hellcat.

  5. Well….I can’t afford one….so does it really matter. Barrett-Jackson ruined it for many
    who now can’t afford an old one. That’s why I
    had to build mine piece by piece. As Carroll
    Shelby said “It’s the continuation series!”

      3. You crack me up Jason Conaway…..Do you even own a hellcat? or even a base Challenger? you have likely never driven one and are nothing more than a bench seat racer fanboy living off of printed specs and FCA propaganda. One word of advice, wait to see the outcome of FCA’s 2018 plan, it will make you relive what Daimler and Cerberus did to Chrysler, as for the future of your dream car, well FCA is under scrutiny for fleet milage and CO2 emissions so what do you think that means for the Hellcat engine and cars? LOL only so many credits marchionne can buy from other car makers, when the heavy fines come down from the government, the auto industry declines again, profitabllity shinks, FCA will be disbanded, challengers will be discontinued and the hellkitty will be an also ran in the history books LOL
