FYI...Mustang Boss

One of the local dealerships here in DC has it priced at $48K. I love the specs on this car, but that is pretty steep. The Laguna Seca edition will be well into the 50s or 60s.

Man, that's treading pretty heavy on the GT500 line. I guess Ford wants to shoot themselves in the foot.

There's going to be big mark up for a while. The name has been gone for 40 years. It will go down eventually like it did on the gt500.

I asked because I didn't know if the $48k included that. I'm curious about what the actual sticker price is without markup.

That's not as bad as I thought it would be, at $40,995 MSRP and add in the Racaro option for $1,995 the mark up doesn't look nearly as bad as it could have been. The Accessory Package ($475) and Yellow Blaze Tri-Coat ($495) options on top of that means its only a $4000 dollar mark up.. not to bad..

Unless thats the Boss 302 Laguna Seca, then that is a fantastic deal..

Lol, You do know that most of the 2012 Boss 302s and GT500s are already gone right? Hardly a shot in the foot...

2012 Boss 302, Boss 302 Laguna Seca, Ford Racing's Boss 302S and Boss 302R

Boss 302 MSRP: $40,995
Options: Racaro seats and a Torsen differential:$1,995
Accessory Package:$475
Yellow Blaze Tri-Coat:$495
Boss 302 Laguna Seca MSRP: $47,990
Ford Racing Boss 302S(Spec) MSRP: $79,000 (Competition Off Road ONLY)
Ford Racing Boss 302R MSRP: $129,000 (Competition Off Road ONLY)

That is the complete Boss lineup with options this year.

The chances of any of us actually even being offered the Boss on a dealer lot is slim to none... and we might as well forget about the 302LS... If I was a dealer, I would roll my Boss through a high roller auction and triple my money...
Last month it looked like alot of SCCA guys were cutting in line with cash in hand to eliminate any average Joes from buying them. It also looks like FIA and NASA guys are following suit...

MSRP is very fair but the limited offering will put the prices in the stratosphere. I wish the average joe could go direct to manufacture to get the car for MSRP.

^ Dealer's are forced to sell cars at MSRP to certain customer's as ADM is not is allowed for Chase employee's and other people from other institutions. The Boss and Shelby arnt on the super cheap invoice X plan list but they can still get them for MSRP.

If you want it bad enough you can get one for msrp, even though I'm an average Joe I am pretty sure I could get one for msrp because I'm creative and persistent.

The Boss 302 is a damn nice car. I was amazed at the price the grabber blue one-off version went for at Barrett-Jackson. Granted, it was a charity auction, but bidding interest was very high. The Boss 302 will be scarce for some time...

I was actually shopping for a Ford SVT Raptor truck, and the sales guy approached me about the Boss. I'm sure it was marked up big time. But they said $48K, and asked if I wanted to put down a $500 deposit on it. I passed for now.

Boss will be priced high for a while, but they'll come down before too long, same as the GT-500s did. A few people who can't really afford 'em, will be selling off their low mileage Boss cars within a couple of years...About the time gas is around $5+ a gallon. It'll be like the late '70s all over again; cheap 5-10 year old muscle cars, and more expensive, crappier gas. This time though, we'll be seeing fast new alternative muscle cars appear... Electrics.
How about 800-1000 foot-pounds of torque at zero rpm..? The motors are here, we're just waiting on better batteries.

MSRP is 40,995. Dealers always seem to think that somewhat rare = guaranteed sale over MSRP, and there are plenty of car buyers who can't make a deal backing up their belief.

It won't happen. Electric is just a stop gap until hydrogen (as used by vehicles) becomes more readily available and affordable. The power grid infrastructure is already being stressed pretty hard. Could you imagine tapping a few million cars into that? Ethanol is a joke too. Growing corn for fuel when there are people starving....epic fail. Big V8 muscles cars are the true green cars because until we suck up and burn off all the fossil fuel there will be no huge demand for alternate fuel sources.

Hydrogen IS electric...and far away. Ethanol (not from corn) and grid electricity are the short-term solutions. Expect to see a lot of the former used in performance cars over the next two decades...


Back on topic......that's not as much of a markup as I thought. Are these cars limited production like the GT500 was?

Hydrogen is a gas. And a very unstable one at that. You have heard of the Hindenburg right?

No, that's not what I meant you goofball.

Hydrogen fuel cell powered cars are electric vehicles, where the Hydrogen fuel cell is the "battery".

I`m sorry, I`m weak and couldn`t resist, gasoline is a liquid and volatile, have you heard of Molotov Cocktail? OK I`m finished and had my fun. Back on topic?

True, there are hydogen fueled internal combustion engines as well though. Rotaries seem to work best.
