Hope yet remains for a BOSS Ford Mustang return

2012_Ford_Mustang_Boss_302

We’ve got to keep the rumor mill crankin’, right?  We all saw and drooled over the Ford Racing BOSS 302R from late last year.  We have witnessed the return of the legendary 5.0 Mustang.  Now, we have caught wind of some continued buzz surrounding the return of a street-trimmed BOSS Mustang.  Mark Fields, Ford President of the Americas, recently dropped a hint/clue/seed/tale that the BOSS moniker could make its way back to production.

“We did the Bullitt, we did a Mach 1, we did the C/S.  I can’t tell you what the next special edition Mustang will be, but I can give you a hint.”

Shortly after his teaser lines, a 1970 BOSS 302 Mustang thundered across the hosting dealership stage and Fields remarked, “Is that a subtle enough hint?”

Let’s hope so, Mark.  Let’s hope so.

2011 Ford Mustang DUB Edition

2011_mustang_DUB_edition

It has begun.  The 2011 Ford Mustang aftermarket looks like it’s going to be just as hot as, if not hotter, than that of the first generation (2005 – 2009 model years) S197 Mustang.  Ford, Roush, and automotive lifestyle magazine DUB have teamed up to spice up their very own 2011 Mustang variant, bringing about some increased attention to the car’s base point.  The car isn’t based up on the new 5.0 Mustang GT; it’s based upon the rev-sexy 3.7-liter V6 Mustang coupe.

2011 Mustang DUB Edition will serve as a kickoff to the many exciting projects Ford has coming down the pike.  Its many upgrades include tires, springs, body paneling, and lots more.  Couple this DUB edition along with the Nelly DUB edition 5.0 we saw just months ago, and you’ve got a great recipe for the DUB Magazine tour, set to traverse the entire country through November.

Keep reading to get all the specifics on the DUB Edition Mustang as well as a few other predicated thoughts from Ford in the press release after the jump.

The Compilation of Ford Mustang Special Editions

2009 Ford Mustang

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past oh say, 15 years, you’d sure to realize the Ford Mustang aftermarket is something that continues to sizzle on far beyond the dreams Carroll Shelby and Lee Iacocca ever imagined back in the 1960s.  The staggering number of late-model Mustang spin-offs is something that could be seen as awesome, inspiring, or even sometimes comical.  It’s quite daunting just how many flavors of the Ford Mustang there are.  What’s more, we’ve done our best to draft up a list for you to digest, observe, and most importantly–help continue to add to it where we’ve left out!

Ready for this bitter pill?  You better be, because we’re going to take a look at the comments to see if there are any we’ve missed (to date) and then also recruit you to help build the SN95, Fox, Mustang II, and Classic special edition lists.  We’ve got the page breaks ready, so let’s hear it!
