Car and Driver: This Is the Letter Sent to Folks Whose Ford GT Application Was Denied

Recommended Posts

Ford-GT-concept-106-876x535
-Ford is only planning on building 500 examples of its $450,000 GT supercar, but 6506 people applied for the chance to buy one. That means Ford is going to have to send out a lot of rejection letters and now, via Jalopnik, we know what that rejection letter looks like. It’s quite sad.

-

At least Ford is letting down rejected applicants easy, and thanking them profusely for their interest in buying a GT. Like a college putting a prospective student on a waitlist, Ford leaves open the possibility that more GT’s could be produced after the initial 500, though we wouldn’t bank on it. The full text, as sent to Jalopnik:

-

“Thank you for your interest in purchasing a Ford GT!
-We are thrilled that you share our passion for performance and the all-new Ford GT.

-

The demand for Ford GT from enthusiasts like you has surpassed our very limited production.

-

Unfortunately, we do not have enough Ford GTs to fulfill your request at this time.

-

We have confirmed our Ford GT production plans for only two years. However, if additional production is confirmed, your application information will remain in your profile for easy updating.

-

Meanwhile, we encourage you to stay connected to the latest announcements, news and information through our website: www.fordgt.com.

-

Thank you, again, for your passion for our all-new supercar.

-

Regards,

-

The Ford GT Team”

Of course, Ford also has already contacted the very fortunate 500 who’ll get to purchase a GT. So, prospective GT customers either are having a great day or a terrible one.
