    The Ford GT racing program is ending after 2019 but will continue as customer support. Does that mean that they will continue building cars for various race teams and we could have more than just 4 Ford GTs that we have now or will they only support the 4 existing Ford GTs?

    Nobody knows for sure other than Ford. That being said, it's highly unlikely that Ford'll build more GT GTEs given that it's only legal in two(?) racing series, unlike GT3 cars for instance. If Ford does decide to sell anymore of their cars (I imagine they'll keep at least one for marketing/museum/R&D purposes), than they'll probably provide parts and limited technical support to the privateers, but otherwise the teams that buy these cars are on their own.
