Can't figure out some pricing

I'm ready to order a GT with an A-Plan.

I almost always order my cars rather than buy off a lot but was looking for an Edge for my father and ended up having to look out of state to find what he wanted. In the process, I found new Mustang GTs for considerably less than A plan price. A-plan is dealer cost - hold back - advertising + $250 processing fee. They do get a kick back from Ford for their trouble since they don't appear to make a cent off the sale and likely still had to pay the advertising fee.

So I looked around and found new GTs at various dealers in diffeent states for up to $1,800 LESS than A-plan price and can't believe all of them were dealers who over-ordered and are taking a bath. Some dealers had numerous GTs priced that way.

I talked to them at great length to see if they were event cars or demos or hail repaired or any other repairs or if there were hidden fees or if the prices included incentives anyone wouldn't qualify for. No to all of that. Out the door they were between $1,000 and $1,800 less than A-plan. I even checked to see if there was a different A plan price in those locations (no). I did notice that almost all were manual trans cars and almost all of them were Performance Package (what I will be buying).

What am I missing? Maybe some dealer people in the forum can shed some light.

Did 60 minutes do a piece on manual trans 2016 GTs being death traps or something?

I know I have bought new GT's in the past off lots at a better price then I could get from my fathers plan (he retired from ford) when they were trying to move the old model years out and at about the same savings you're talking about.


Engine mods - all stock, trust me, wanna run??!!!

Thanks.

Is the 2017 model year starting soon by any chance? If so, I might wait to see if there are any improvements. Rather have something better than something cheaper.
