    Any idea what changes are coming for the 2014 Shelby? There were quite a few changes between the 2012 and 2013 Boss, I wonder if we will see the same level of change in the 2014 GT500?

    I think the Boss changes were mostly the result of a lot of changes for the Mustang in general for 2013. Ford may have something planned for the 2014 to keep up the excitement (and sales) prior to the 2015 redesign - any idea what might be coming?

    At minimum, I am expecting different or special colors, different wheel options, and maybe some lighting/LED's.

    I don't know anything and I have NO idea, but seeing as it's gone through such a big change I'd be willing to bet the 14 will just carry over with a higher price.

    If they add a color then I would want the dark green available on the explorer.

    Some minor option changes may occur in MY '14, but really all the changes in '15 will be a result of the complete redesign of the mustang (if Ford doesn't wait a wait to create the new GT500). After that there will be small changes from year to year or every other year until the next major redesign.

    yea, i think it will be colors, maybe a couple HP bump, maybe even throw my ford touch in all the mustangs since it's going in the super duties...after seeing the dummy pic of the interior of the 2015, i don't have too much confidence in it haha

    Yes, at minimum I am expecting some color changes/options. They may drop one of the 2013 colors that didn't sell well and add a few to see if they can generate some additional interest.

    I would also like to see some new tire and wheel options.

    The only thing i can see is colors, maybe offering differnt choices on the wheels and thats about it i would think. Anything other than that is going to be a rough.

    Yes, just colors. Ford and SVT are already hard at work on the '15. I don't think they'll bump production up for more units unless they blow through the 3800 '13s very early. If the '15 GT500 has 700+hp, weighs 250+ lbs. less, and has IRS a bunch of guys will dump their '13s/'14s.

    I think a new tire and wheel option is a very possibility to help distinguish it from the '13. I can also see some LED changes, they are easy but make a difference.

    I am expecting the '14 sales to be much smaller than the '13 because much of the demand will be consumed by the '13 and information with be coming in on the all new '15 so buyers will be waiting. Of course, if they don't do a good job on the '15 and keep the HP at least comparable, the demand for the '14 could skyrocket.

    Yes I agree just a couple new color options. Some machine finished SVTPP wheels would also be nice.

    They may also delete the little roof mounted net thingy.
