Just when you thought it was out, they pull it back in. When Ford unveiled the Shelby GT350R Mustang, it came without a back seat. And for good reason -- it's a hardcore car, meant for the track rather than the street. Customer demand, however, trumps reason (reason doesn't keep the lights on), and so the back seat returns as an option.
Yes, you read that correctly. You paid more for a car without a back seat, and now, you'll get the privilege of paying $999 to get that seat back in there.
Ford is clearly taking a page from Porsche's playbook, because the German automaker loves charging money for the removal of parts, but paying to get it reinstalled takes that game to a whole new level.
The back seats are made from suede-like Alcantara with red contrast stitching, just like the front seats. The installation kit, which can be purchased from Ford Performance's website, also includes all the seatbelts and parts you'll need for a fully legal four-seater.
