The last R built was the 2000 R.
Personally I'm glad they quit building them. The were way over-priced,
super-low edition models. Cars only collectors bought so you never
saw them on the street.
Some of the people that BOUGHT them, yes, but Ford? How much money did
they make off of these 200 or so cars? Really. The idea was for
certifiable racers to purchase the Rs and race them. Win on Sunday, sell
on Monday. My Brother had a neighbor with one and it was a street/track
car that he auto-x and road-raced.
Now Shelby, that's a different story, try to get a new GT350 making blue

One of the cars on that page, the Mustang Boss 302R I saw for sale in a
company parking lot in Toronto. I didn't think there was any Boss
available. But according to the page, they are basically for racing.

That's where muscle cars from 1970 and now differ. In 1970, you could
spend $5500 or so on a Shelby and that was a lot of money for a car. But
you could also buy a 289 Mustang or 340 Dart for about $2700. Now, there
are no 289's and no Darts.
