Just my opinion, but Ford doesn't allow SVT to exist to provide value to its customers. It uses SVT's efforts to sell cars, not SVT cars, but all the rest of the cars they manufacture. We all know there isn't a big margin of profit on any SVT vehicle. Ford wants the Cobras, Lightenings, and SVT Focuses out ther so people see them in the showroom and see them on the street. Most people will either not be able to afford them or will not have an opportunity to buy them based on supply. These cars get people in the dealership and then the dealership sells them a GT, F150, or ZX3 and that's where the real profit exists. If a dealer thinks they can make more money off of a car based on demand, they will do it. They will only get away with it if consumers like ourselves are willing to pay the price. That's the principle of a market economy and that's the way it has to work. In the end, I don't believe Ford will attempt to dictate SVT pricing because their purpose is being served no matter what the dealer sells the car for. As for SVT itself, they probably don't like the idea of the exorbitant prices these dealers are charging, but I don't think they have the power to change it based on Ford's policies.
