So this is a reply to a “value question” on a different forum (you can probably guess which one). Unlike many, I understand the need for value dialogue and don’t knee jerk resist those discussions. I thought I might cross post this in Fchat. I know many use the search feature to research cars and I thought these opinions might help someone down the road. So I was asked where I thought the FGT was in its value curve... Not sure. I guess it depends somewhat on the current matter we are making our way through. Assuming the economy rights itself quickly after a sharp, but short retraction, I think the GT probably stays somewhat steady over time. Helping the car are these key factors: 1). American Supercar. This matters. At least it did to me. Something about having the Blue Oval stamped on the front. It’s almost like the everyman’s exotic. No offense to anyone (as I mentioned previously, I own both a Ferrari and a Lamborghini), but the Ford GT probably does not polarize near as much as other high end cars. The easiest way to say it, at the risk of drawing ire, the ****** factor is about as low as you can get with the Ford GT. 2). Analog. Bolt action. End of an era. Millennial theft deterrent device. I still can’t get over how much I enjoy being reunited with the hand shaker. Plus, no nanny’s. None. Legit widow maker. 3). Bullet proof. It’s reassuring having a 15 year old car that carries nearly zero risk of going boom. I know that this reason alone keeps the value high. Aspirational buyers can stretch out for this car knowing that they are not going to get whacked with unforeseen repair bills. Servicing the car is relatively easy. I mean, it’s a Ford. Tons of owners do their own maintenance. Can’t really do that with your Pista. 4). Timeless design. Could be 5 years old, could be 50 years old. The design is epic. Plus, unlike many cars, it gets more beautiful and more contemporary as time moves on. Again, no offense, but think about some of the cars that came out at the same time (I won’t name them, don’t need to, you know what they are), those cars show their age. At some point those cars will be back in favor again, but for now, they look their age. 5). Modern performance. The weight is relatively low, and with 550 HP base, and with 700 HP available with a couple easy mods (x pipe, pulley, tune), you can create real modern speed. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s not nearly as fast as my Performante or 812, not even close, but the way the speed is delivered creates a strong impression of speed. For now, I have no plans to go beyond the base power delivery, but it’s nice to know that I could reach for a little more if I needed it. 6). Relatively mileage insensitive. Unlike other cars of its genre, each mile does not fully crush the value. Clearly, the powder puff, diaper rubbed, garage queens have more built in value, but the driver’s cars pull good money too. Think about what 10,000 miles does to just about any other car, and then think about what that does to a Ford GT. Not that I care about miles, I’ll drive this car with complete impunity, hoping to clock 1500-2000 miles per year. 7). Rare enough. So, many of these cars were exported over the years, while others were destroyed in accidents. It’s a matter of pure speculation, but I guess there is somewhere around 3000ish still on US roads. That number is low enough to preserve pricing, and that preservation of pricing has its own appeal for many people. Even before CV19, I had probably lost well over $100,000 in less than a year on my 812. That won’t happen on the GT, and that fact alone helps with pricing stability. 8). Racing pedigree. I think the Ford v Ferrari movie (which I personally thought was rather well done) gave the car a little pop. Certainly more visibility was placed on the car in the near term. Over time, the racing heritage means something to many. That’s how I see the GT. I don’t expect a big run up in value, nor do a see much of a retraction either. To me, the car will stay somewhat steady, which is what it’s done for the last decade or so. I hope this info helps you and anyone else who might stumble upon it. Finally, I really regret not getting one sooner. I will be making up for lost time.
