Ford unveiling Boss Mustang Aug. 13th?



With all-new powertrains debuting in the 2011 Ford Mustang, you knew it was just a matter of time before a new limited-edition model was introduced. Well, it looks like that time may be next week. As you all know very well by now, the 2011 Mustang GT has the new Ford 5.0 V8 underhood. Since the new race version (above) wears the Boss 302R moniker, a new street-going Boss 302 seems like a no-brainer.

During a recent Grand-Am race, the announcers let slip that the consumer-spec Boss 302 would debut in mid-August at Laguna Seca as part of Pebble Beach week. (The exact date spinning around the rumormill is August 13.) The Boss reportedly delivers about 430 horsepower with a price in the low $30,000 range. Ford's motorsports partner, Multimatic, is apparently building some special parts for the Boss 302, but we'll have to wait until next week to find out those specifics if indeed this rumor is true. Check out the video after the jump.

If it sales in the low 30s and has an even better suspension setup than the 2011 and has more hp, it will be a hit.

Mark up will probably be stupid though.

Then.. come 2012 they dump all the super special 'parts' into the joe blow 5.0 and say 'Lookie me, I haz moar powar than Camero!"

Then the Fanboy s**tstorm starts. Meanwhile at Rencen a new dark matter LS engine is being prototyped. For once a Camaro will actually operate using Ford Mustangs as a fuel.

Oh yeah, Boss 302. 1970 Boss 302 is one of my all time favorite cars. Glad to see a new version.

Now if only they could pull it off by using the proper Yellow, and flat black PAINT rather than vinyl stripes.

If they don't Ford is dead. Dead.

Dead..

















N' Dead.

I give them credit for at least offering a special model with extras. There really has not been anything like that for Camaro.

Not sure what you are alluding to. The 5th gen. Camaro when first released was marked up extensively. Same thing for the Indy Pace Car replica.

Pinning a markup just on Ford is ridiculous.

Not sure what you paid for your Camaro but I will say I paid less than MSRP for my GT500 and my GT.

Back OT. I am not a fan of this idea. If it is watered down, not a good mark for Ford.

Exactly. Look at how a dealer wants to charge a $20K mark-up on the Volt.

Some people can't complain enough when another comapany does something they disagree with, but are noticably quiet when 'their' car company does the exact same thing.

DING-DING-DING Exactly what I was thinking. Any time a dealer is involved and thinks he/she can inflate the profit margin beyond what's fair - they probably will. NOT saying all dealers would scam their own grandmother out of her last dollar but it's surprisingly easy to find one (or 100) that would.

Back to the topic - glad to see the Boss 302 back in it's new iteration!

Ford has always had specialty Mustangs. SVO, Cobra R, Bullit, Mach 1. This news doesn't really surprise me but I bet it's a CAI, tune and suspension. I doubt ford will do much more. I would guess the SS gets a small HP increase for 2012. That seems to be the m.o. for GM. I'm holding out hope for a 3.73

I'm hoping GM offers the gear with warranty intact. I will be first in line.

There is no doubt Ford dealers rode that horse into the ground. The first car I can remember being sold for more than sticker was the Mazda Miata. I am sure markups were happening before that but I was just not aware of it. I can't think of any dealer brand that has not had cars that were priced for more than msrp before. Z06 Corvettes were going for 20k over sticker in 07'.

What did they do?


I ordered my 2011 form a fancy orange county dealership for msrp back in February, three month's before the testers even got their hands on them. Anybody smart enough to join an online forum is not going to pay adm in this economy. 2011's are already being sold 1k over invoice and 2010's are going for up to 5k off msrp.

They made 2 billion in profit last quarter and that is without the 2011. Not dead either way.

Im guessing this will be similiar to the Bullitt. A few upgrades, but nothing too drastic.

Time will tell.
