Here is the relevant portion from the press releaseI'm hopeful there will be a new waitlist created. This would make since, especially for current Ford GT owners. Locks a place in line and keeps our money flowing to Ford. Any chance of this?
I read this to say that 2018 will be a new application process similar to the one this year, and that it will be open not only to the existing applicants but to new applicants as well. I don't see any way to read that there will be another "wait list" created from the previous applications.Year three of production will support applicants who were placed on the wait list; previously deferred applicants and those who missed the initial application window will be served by production year four. The application process for fourth-year production will reopen in early 2018. Those who already applied to own the car will only need to update their request.
