1st Gear: 2013 Shelby GT500 Convertible Coming To Detroit Auto Show? Probably Not.
Two months after they unveiled the 650 HP 2013 Shelby GT500 coupe, TopSpeed claims Ford plans to unveil the 2013 Shelby GT500 convertible at next month's Detroit Auto Show. Seems like a strange place — Detroit in the middle of winter — to unveil a new high-powered convertible, doesn't it? Especially given we'll see the 2013 Ford Fusion and some kind of Lincoln concept unveiled there, one would think Ford's already got its hands full. Sorry guys, that's just not gonna happen.
