Is the Boss 302 on the streets yet?

Visiting a Porsche oriented board, a poster in Oklahoma claimed to have seen a 302 at an autocross earlier this month (Oct. 2010)

I didn't think they were out yet????

Thanks. I dunno what this guy saw, but I doubt it was a 2011 boss 302...he also said it was black.

All 2011 GT's are 302's. Maybe he thought only the Boss was a 302?

Or, Ford decided to bring a promo or test car to the event.

If it was driven to the event, it could have been a poser.

If it was trailered, it could have been a Boss 302R.

Maybe some filthy rich bimbo bought one and felt special enough to take it to the track? :hihi:

No, go scream BS. It wasn't a Boss 302.

Perhaps. Those cars are not in production yet, but it may have been a Ford advertising thing. It sure as hell wasn't a privately owned 2012 Boss.

They do have some pre-production cars out, because there was one on display at Laguna Seca during the races.

I did see a 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca in black and red on Interstate 75 coming across alligator alley. Anyone that is familiar with this stretch of road will know what i'm talking about. They use this road quite often to test cars.

And as a matter of fact I saw the new Dodge Challenger without the covering an hour later. So I wouldn't be so quick to call BS to whomever said they saw the Boss.

And correction on my previous post..I meant Charger, not Challenger

2012 models start production in late December...

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.
