The Ford GT... Is Coming Back! -- Reportedly, At Least

Posted by: Matt Wright on 11/18/2021

Our friends at Road & Track are typically very much in the know when it comes to the development of future products. That’s why we’re extremely excited to hear that a brand-new Ford GT is seemingly being prepped to make a 2016 debut.

The choice of year here is no coincidence, of course, as that would put the new Ford GT introduction on par with the 50th anniversary of the automaker’s inaugural Le Mans victory. Otherwise known as the time Ford put Ferrari firmly in check.

A new Ford GT would obviously be a welcome and wonderful thing for this world. We are currently in a golden age for the supercar and hypercar loving set, with the likes of Pagani, Koenigsegg, Ferrari, McLaren, and Porsche churning out vehicles that push the boundaries of what’s possible with a four-wheeled conveyance. Adding a new Ford GT to that mix would be, well, super.

Now, we can’t imagine that the Ford GT would go full-on hypercar hybrid powertrain. This is an American icon, and as such we expect it to utilize some form of V-8 engine, most likely with a bit of forced induction. Road & Track seems to think the same as well, but they also speculate that there could be a racing version that utilizes a heavily massaged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine. Apparently these units are good for power figures well into the 600 horsepower range.

Regardless, we’re just excited to see a new Ford GT enter the world. If Ford also decides to take it racing, the rest of the world should get excited as well… or scared.
