Ford’s GT-Inspired Supercar May Be Coming to Detroit Auto Show

Ford may unveil multiple high-performance models under an all-new sub-brand at the Detroit Auto Show, which may include the reincarnated GT supercar, according to recent reports.

There are approximately four rumoured new high-performance models, which are grouped under a sub-brand similar to Mercedes’ AMG division and BMW’s M. There have been no designated names reported yet, but a possible option is 999, the name of Ford’s first-ever race car.

The standout model will be a new supercar that will mimic the silhouettes of the GT40, the four-time consecutive winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 60s, and retro-styled GT model that was sold in 2005 and 2006. Most likely mid-engined, the supercar might not carry over the GT nameplate, but it will carry on the GT legacy.

Ford will also present the second-generation SVT Raptor off-roader at the Show. Details that include the F-150-based aluminum body have been revealed, but others, like the powertrain, have been kept quiet.

According to earlier reports, the Shelby GT350 that debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show earlier this month won’t be the final version. Ford has an even more extreme variation of the muscle car planned that will be aimed squarely at the Chevrolet Camaro Z/18. Changes will include a more aggressive body kit, bigger brakes and a pared-down cabin.

Lastly, the hot-rod version of the Focus could be revealed in Detroit as well. The hatchback shares an engine option with the Mustang, sporting a 2.3-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder that makes 300 horsepower. If the RS doesn’t make it to the Motor City expect to see it in Geneva a few months later.

The Detroit Motor Show will open its doors to the public on January 17, 2015.
