    FYI: I submitted mine late the evening of Dec 6th. I then wanted to make some changes, and was able to do so the following morning around 11am (EST, not GMT), so it appears that either Ford left the window open a little longer than first announced, or allowed you to make changes after the deadline, after it was successfully submitted. Or maybe they really meant 12:01 pm in the US eastern or central time zone and someone put GMT instead.

    Can't say beyond many thousands more applicants than cars. Sigh.

    and how about a guess as to how thousands are coming up with 500 thousand plus dollars to afford one of these cars? Seems to me that at this price there would be a very limited number of people who could afford them, unlike the original 05 06 run

    There are 11 million households in the U.S with investable assets exceeding $1 million.

    1,394th place on the Forbes Billionaire list is worth $1.7 billion. There are a thousand more billionaires after that.

    This is how Lamborghini is about to sell its 10,000th Aventador, which is now similarly priced.

    A black box process usually provokes many questions.

    I remember something like applicants from first application may have a higher chance than newbie applicants. is the number of people that reapplied known ?

    Just trying to look smart, in reality I just want to know ... you know !

    I remember DBK saying after the Cena issue that it would make it harder for regular enthusiasts to get a new GT allocation this time around. Is this still the case?
