Unhappy End of SVT??

If true, it looks like we will probably need to rethink how these cars will be valued in the future.
I posted this a few days ago in an obscure spot. Though I would post again to get your response. Is this old news, speculation or is SVT really in this much trouble?

Interesting article. I agree the SVT line has dwindled away to nothing. The "last man standing" (the Shelby GT500) isn't quite what I'd hoped it'd be. It's just a Mustang GT with a lot more horsepower, and too damn heavy.

In the end, it's all fine for me. I have my 2003 Cobra, and my next car will be a Z06 or V8 M3, so I don't mind that SVT is in the crapper. Don't get me wrong, the GT500 is a cool car that will merit good sales, it's just not for me.
