Shelby promises "something special" on December 15th

What's going on at Shelby American? We'll have to wait nearly a month to find out, but it looks like a revamped Mustang is on the way. So far, all we have is a teaser posted on social media, showing a current-gen Mustang under a sheet.  That's literally all Shelby wants to share right now, and it's the first time we've heard such news from the Las Vegas-based trainer.   Die-hard Shelby fans know that December 15 is a historic date ... Indeed, in 2009, it was on this date that Shelby Automobiles became Shelby American. We'll spare you all the legal details, but the Shelby company experienced some turmoil in the late 1990s and early 2000s, before the Mustang Shelby's official return in 2006 with the Hertz GT-H.  Given the importance of this announcement in 2009, we doubt that the choice of December 15 for a new announcement is a mere coincidence.   In 2009, Shelby American's announcement coincided with the 45th anniversary of the 1965 Shelby GT350 . Ford ended production of the modern GT350 in 2020, but maybe Shelby will create its own version? Things get a bit confusing, because Ford's modern Shelby Mustangs (the GT350 and GT500) are actually built entirely by Ford  in conjunction with the Shelby brand.  Special versions, such as the Super Snake or Signature Edition, are modified by Shelby. So with the GT500 and Mach 1 on hold at Ford, it might be a good time for a Shelby-modified Shelby GT350.  It's all well and good, but here's one theory that stands out from the rest. Shortly after the return of the GT500 in 2007, Shelby offered a GT500KR with more horsepower and a modified suspension.   We will not know the nature of this announcement until December 15th, by then the bets are off!
