I dunno... making special editions is like printing money. Even if people can't afford the SE, it makes it easier to justify a GT when it's not the most expensive. "Honey, the GT was a compromise; I wanted the Twister Special, but saved $5k getting this instead."
I'm guessing Ford will continue their current setup of three consistent models (base/V8/hi-po V8) and a rotating a special edition that changes about every two years. To that end it makes perfect sense that we'll see a Cobra, a Mach 1, and probably 3 or 4 others before the S550's successor debuts.
