Question on new Boss 302
« on: March 03, 2012, 07:45:01 am »
Does anyone know how many 2012 Boss 302 Ford made?  Does anyone know how many 2013 Boss 302's will be made?  Are the following how many they built back in 1969 and 1970?

Also, any word if they are going to do a Boss 351 for 2014 or will they continue the Boss 302 for 2014?

Any information would be greatly appreciated as I am getting ready to pull the trigger!

Official word was 3250 Bosses and 750 LSes for both years. For 2012, it looks like Ford stuck to 3250 for the Regular Boss, but made 764 LSes.

All I have read so far about a 2014 Boss 351 is pure speculation but it only makes sense to do one.

I would like to see Ford do a street version of the new Cobra Jet drag car too. There have been rumors of a Mach 1 so maybe that's in the works.

1970 BOSS 302 - Yellow/Black Deluxe - W code/Detroit Locker
1970 Sportsroof - Yellow/Black Std - Q/SCJ/W code/4speed 
2014 Shelby GT500 - White/Black stripes - SVT Performance Package

I highly doubt it. There has been no word, let a lone any type of marketing from Ford on it. Ford would not keep this a secret, 1 year before the new models come out. Just for the sake of making sales.

The 2012 Boss 302 was annouced that it was officially in the works, back in 2009. They had there PR event in 2010. There is a lot that goes behind a program of launching a certain model of car.

I really see with all the craze of Hybrids, and with the economy, Ford really putting there next years of Marketing towards that, and cars like the Focus, Fiesta etc.

It would be B*tchin though, if they came out with a Boss 351.

I was told in Dearborn last summer that the Boss would be built for only 2 years. Pony up for one now or it will be the 70's all over again. "Remember dear, when you could have bought a new one in 2012 for a lot less. You should have done it." I can hear it now... :D

A 2013 Gotta Have It Green Boss 302, will be coming to our Knotts PRE-Show event. He is a member on the Bossmustangonline, and is receiving it the first week of April.

I have pre-ordered a School Bus Yellow Boss 302 from Apple Ford that will arrive in June. However, they are telling me that they have several un-claimed 302's arriving in April. I just wanted to purchase mine straight from the factory, get the colors/options I want, without having to worry about that "Gotta Have it Green" color.

So - you should see some pretty cool 2013 Boss Reviews in April - but it might be too late to order them if you wait till then.

I have been to about 5 different dealers and they all say that they want my money and that they can get me a Boss 302.  But I have heard that only certain dealers can get them.  I don't want to give money and then at the end of the year not get one and these dealers try and give me a GT instead.
