Unexpected Boss sighting

I went into a local Ford dealer to check out a leftover '11 GT, and found this on the showroom floor:





This one (loaded) is sold, but they have another one, exactly the same, available.

Orange. My favorite color. Sigh

They have a $10,000 ADM on it, but it seemed like they were VERY eager to negotiate if they could roll it by the end of the month. If I had the $$$ I'd be out driving it now instead of writing about it. Sigh.

What makes a Boss "loaded"? I thought the only option was the Recaro seats with Torson diff.

That's what the salesman called it LOL. I guess it's loaded with Recaros and markup He also said the track key is an option but I'm not sure that's true.

They had the same orange BOSS in the showroom when I ordered my 2012 GT. I had fallen in love with the black Laguna Seca and I went in with the intention of seeing if I could order one of them. I hadn't realized it wasn't street legal. Next best thing I figured I could do was order a black GT and fix it up similar but not the same. I kept looking at the orange one everytime the salesperson went to ask the parts dept people or his boss questions. It really stuck out in the show room. So did the silver GT500 Cobra with blue striping! I didn't think I'd ever like an orange car but that BOSS is awesome! Of course if anybody had told me I'd be ordering a 'black' Stang I would have laughed at them (too hard to keep clean/ dust free). After seeing the black Laguna Seca though ..............

Actually there is the LCA edition. In this case the "upper" trim level of the Boss actually comes more stripped down. It has the back seat delete with an extra cross brace where the back seat would be and i think finally comes with the track key. It also has the special LCA badging....

At any rate referring to any Boss as "loaded" just reflects on what dumb a$$es salesmen are. There are no loaded Boss mustangs..thats rather the point of them (they are designed to be lighter).

My car is "loaded" you can get a shelby loaded, but not a Boss. What an idiot

Must be. There were only 13 black Laguna Secas released in Canada. The dealership where I bought my GT said they were the only Ford Dealership south of Toronto to get one (Windsor isn't just the 'But-End' of Canada because of its location). From what they said, they sold it to another dealership for big bucks - $120,000 range. I always wondered about that because when I went on Ford.com and built a Stang with the specs I liked I was always able to select the black Laguna Seca BOSS but I couldn't when I was on Ford.ca. Go figure?!
