mach 1 rumors?

Anyone got any leads or know of any rumors of a new mach1? I was watching a 2010 Barrett Jackson special addition show, and the had the mustangs lead engineer on and when asked if there will be a new mach1 he just replied, you never know what to expect from mustang, like really I don't want to go buy a gt and a year later the mach1 comes out.

Re: mach 1 rumors?

Honestly you don't know till rumors from FoMoCo start, then if the model is lucrative a press release will break out and you'll start seeing more info and a prototype.

I'm not sure I'd hold off on buying a GT just to see if they make a model...it's not like the GT's a slouch in performance...a new Mach 1 would probably be mostly cosmetic, possibly a shaker scoop and some different suspension components.

Picture? Oh yeah those old Mach 1s are so bad *** I love that stripe kit. Make your own get a GT and from there mod it exactly how you want it I think it's more fun to watch the progress rather then buy it and leave it as is.

Re: mach 1 rumors?

I don't know if there is room for a Mach 1 in the current lineup and with the economy and gas prices where they are. The 2012 Boss 302 does a good job filling in the middle between a 2012 GT and a 2012 Shelby GT500 price wise.

Completely agree Brent. There are already enough mustangs for the time I mean we have the 5.0 back and the boss and the gt500 it would be hard to have another successful level to put a Mach 1 on.

Maybe if they recreate the fastback in a few years. They could do the Mach instead of the BOSS

Re: mach 1 rumors?

they were probably kind of hinting at the Boss 302, its the middle ground between the GT and GT500

I would buy a boss and skip even the thought of a Mach. I don't know how much better than the boss they can go. Or the super snake lol

I don't believe they are going to run a full fastback like '67+ I just don't see it happening...could be wrong though......regardless some people I have talked to don't like all of the options for mustangs.....It's weird that Ford started with only black and limited options and GM really kicked off options but Ford has the most variety of options...in every vehicle not just the mustang.....


I think after they finish the Boss they may but who knows what they will do for the 50th anniversary...........

I think that Ford doesn't want anything to compete with the boss right now so it will probably be a while before they start making different models again. Cause after svt did the cobra Ford really didn't do anything special that was really huge like the boss. From 05 to present but who knows Ford is on the ball for sure on everything but I guess they will have to do something to compete with the zl1 camaro coming out
