Noooooooooo! Ford's GT supercar — based on the GT40s that swept LeMans with a 1-2-3 finish in 1966 (among other motoring heroics) — will be cut from the lineup in September amid a broad cost-cutting plan. But that's not all. The Sport Trac Adrenaline, a high-performance pickup that had been due from the company's SVT performance shop won't be built, and the Lincoln LS will be discontinued in April — sooner than had been expected (it;s built at the Wixom plant, due to be closed in 2007). Get those GTs while you can, kids, they may be worth something someday.
