Post Is The 2011 Mustang Boss 302R Headed To The Street?



Reports have begun to surface that Ford will take it to the streets, ?it? being the brute-force 2011 Mustang Boss 302R. You remember the Boss 302R. We told you about it last December. Ford said just 50 Boss 302R units would be built, but lately a couple of sites have been reporting a change of plans.

I'm sure they will go the way of the Cobra R, snapped up by dealers and never will see the race track.

You have these comments attributed to Mark Fields and they were made by Jim Farley... and I wouldn't count on it being a race version like the 302R

You mean collectors... not dealers - I've sold a 302R and it races in the Grand-Am Continential Tire series.

No I mean dealers, since they have the first shot at them and know they are collectible they rarely wind up in racing arenas...the Cobra Rs prove this.
Don't even get me started on the shady dealer system and how much people hate it...clearly one of the Big 3s causes of their downfall...I'd never buy a car from a dealer again, a bunch of con artists.

By your logic, the Cobra R's would be sitting on showroom floors everywhere - the fact that they aren't being raced and are collectable is certainly not the fault of the dealerships - but exactly how many of the 657 total Cobra R vehicles built in three different model years do you expect to see racing?

Additionally, every Ford dealership is an independant franchise (except the store in Manhattan) so it is not clear how you can judge every dealership as being shady... it is certainly unfortunate that you have had a bad experience - but don't put me in that group. What exactly is shady about the dealer system?

Yes, I would guess it's gonna happen.

Look for a price somewhere near the charge for the Mach 1...

logically, it would have to be less than a GT500...
