Introduction: 2007-2012 California Special

2007-2009 GT/CS
In 2007 Ford revived the "California Special" name from the original 1968 version and introduced a brand new GT/CS Mustang. Just as with the original the late model GT/California Special was an appearance package, including familiar features like body striping and side scoops. Although not a performance package, the GT/CS was only available on the GT Premium platform, so by default it recieved all the GT performance enhancements.

The new GT/CS proved a popular package and was extended into 2008 and 2009. After an absense in 2010, the GT/California Special package returned for 2011-2014. Whether it continues beyond this is probably just a matter of popularity and sales figures.

Below is a year by year summary of the GT/CS package, available colors and conflicting options not available. For a more detailed list with photos see the HOW TO IDENTIFY section.
