The 2017 Ford GT is a second generation mid-engine sports car manufactured by Ford.

Its production marks fifty years since the GT40 Mk. II won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966, as opposed to the production of the first generation GT, which entered production in 2004 as part of Ford's 100th anniversary celebration.

Entering production in December 2016, the GT is aimed with a schedule of 250 cars per year with Ford's assembly facility in Markham, Ontario, Canada.

The first 500 are reserved for purchase to selected buyers, the next 250 are reserved for buyers that didn't meet Ford's selection process for the first 500, and the final 250 - which will be produced in 2020 - will be available for anyone to purchase.

The 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 and stylised body were incorporated into the GT's design to better facilitate its racing ability. It is not a road car that has been adapted for racing, but rather a racing car that has been tweaked as little as possible to become road legal.

Racing was at the foremost point of the GT's design, and was evident with its entry into the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016 within the GTE-Pro class, which was announced a year prior at 2015's event. The #68 Ford GT LM GTE-Pro finished 1st and its victory coincided with 50 years following Ford's win against Ferrari.
