The new, 2017 Ford GT supercar will be one of the most scarce, selective automobiles ever sold when it begins shipping to customers later this year. In fact, its production will be so limited that potential buyers were required by Ford to submit a detailed application that would assess whether or not they were worthy of the $400,000+ supercar.
Now, more than two months after applications for the first two model years of the Ford GT closed, the automaker has started to send out the rejection letters. Jalopnik reader Brian shared one such letter with the automotive outlet, and it’s very, very sad stuff. It reads:
Dear [name redacted],
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, you 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.
The Ford GT Team
Ford plans on only building 250 units per annum for the next two years, for a total of 500 Ford GT examples. But hey, seeing as Ford has already extended the GT racing program through 2019, perhaps they’ll tack another two years onto road-car production, as well.
