Shelby's Las Vegas facility has been hit hard lately as they have had to cut their workforce by 30-40 percent down to about 75 employees. Shelby feels this is a good number of employees moving forward for the amount of vehicles they are building.
The 2011 Shelby GT350 post-title package may be the last Shelby Mustang we see for while as John Luft, President of Shelby American says there is nothing on the drawing board to succeed it. We have also heard Shelby's contract with Ford for the Shelby GT500 runs out on the 2012 model so this could signal the end of Shelby branded vehicles as we know it.
Do I hear a return of the SVT Cobra on the horizon for 2013 model year, maybe as its the 20th Anniversary of the first SVT branded Cobra.
