Ford is boosting the limited production of its $400,000 GT supercar to keep up with demand, the company said Thursday.
The Ford GT is the automaker's answer to high-performance sports cars from companies such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren and others.
Orders have been outpacing supply, prompting Ford to up production from the 1,000 GTs it originally planned to make in 2016 to 1,350. The company is also extending its production deadline from 2020 to 2022.
"The response to our Ford GT has been unprecedented, with initial demand outstripping supply by more than six-to-one," said Hermann Salenbauch, director of Ford Performance. "By extending the Ford GT production run for a limited period, we're able to maintain the exclusivity of the ultra-desirable supercar while offering the ownership experience to a greater number of customers."
