Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

What do you think the fate of the 2012 Boss 302 Will be? Will it be limited and way over priced (dont forget dealership add on fees....) or will it be more attainable as a level between the GT and GT500 and not be super limited in the number released, or perhaps not limited (specific number set at initial build) at all?

Re: 2012 Boss Will it be Limited in production (Poll inside!)

Limited....with the addition that dealers will screw customers over....I'm thinking around 7500 in production with ~10k "market adjustment" tacked on for good measure.

I bet they do something like that and bring it back out in 2013 as a very limited production at which point they will finally cease and desist the boss.

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

Nope, there definitely will not be a 2013 model. Not a chance, unless it comes out in early 2012 in which case there will definitely not be a 2014 model.

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

Im being told the Boss 302 will last two to three years. It will be released in 2011 as a 2012. So far Ive not heard of or was told of any production numbers but when I find out that and price I sure will share.

The whole Mustang is getting a new platform for 2014 for its 50th birthday so a 2012 to 2013 Boss 302 is foreseeable.

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

I would consider a Boss but not at the expensive of my 03... I need a bigger garage (plus it will be over priced for a long time due to dealers anyway lol)

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

Boss I would think will be somewhat limited. Although you are right, money talks, as long as Ford can make money. No telling how long they will be produced.


If the new platform does come to an end in 2014, maybe a Mach 1 for 2013. Usually made at the end of a platform run.

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

Hey no offense but today 5.0 gts are sold for less than 370z which are always priced in the high 30s and lower 40s so if Ford wants to sell their boss for 40+ I say do it. We can always get em preowned but if we want ford to continue to exist then they will need revenue to do so, plus if BMW could sell their not worth it M3s for 80 plus then why can't a Boss be sold for 50.

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

m3 start at around 50 nowadays just to let you know, I think the la seca option is cool, but at the same time i don't, with the rear seat delete and roll cage its just not as functional, still awesome tho. and only the nismo and sport touring 370z's go to almost 40g's, la seca tho is definately better than a nismo 4 sure. But there r some ups and down in comparison to the M3

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

junoS197Bl08 in Massachusetts 370z sell for 35,000 to low 40g range and m3 are hard to find at 55g range many are raised to the 65g to 80g range. I am an avid car guy who spends a lot of time researching car prices and performance. Also because these cars I test drove and considered buying but turned down because of Mass overpriced dealerships. I test drove a 370z not even with the sport suspension and the price was 38,000 plus. And don't even talk about the convertible 370z, the 2 at that same steelership was priced around 43.000.

The M3 is not going to compare to the Laguna Seca Boss especially considering the stock 2011 GT was running on par with M3 lap times. Not impressed with the Nissan either.

We do have to understand that the Laguna Seca version isn't aimed as a competitor to these vehicles. The Boss may but the Laguna Seca is aimed for a specific buyer.

the regular 2011 GT is right on par with the current M3... the laguna seca will have no trouble with it.

I mean idk y the 370's would be more expensive other than taxes, but most likely m3's at 55 are hard to find b/c most people who buy m3's get a lot of extra option with them since they already are buying a 50k car whats a few more grand, for instance you can get an smg m3 with non power anything but they r rare cuz somebody who is spending that much wants everything in it, you should be able to order an M3 for 55 though.

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

junoS197Bl08. That's exactly what it is. I was considering buying an e90 M3 since I like the sedans, but I know a few guys who head engine problems already plus the salesman who let me test drive a Z4 M coupe that same day told me the v8 are going to be hell to maintain when warranty runs out, even worse than the e46s 3.2L motor, that's why I am going Mustang Gt, still waiting for the dealership to tell me if I'm approved or not on a 2011 performance white California GT that looks just as bad *** as the M3s in real life, even with the carbon fibre dash and the chrome shift nob, MMMMMMM.

I don't think Ford has probably ever stated this. There may have been comparisons but as Spec said ... the 2011 GT is the M3 competitor (Car and Driver, Automobile, & etc have all made these driving comparisons)

The Laguna is designed for one reason, therefore I don't think it's honestly fair to compare it to a M3 as the M3 is not designed as a track car.

That is a true statement, go to speedtv and find out when they are going to air the Boss 302 special again. I watched it and they talk about how they use the M3 as a bench mark for the Boss but after testing they realized really quick it was far faster than the M3 and they had to find a much higher benchmark.

Re: Will The 2012 Boss Mustang Be Limited In Production?

pay sticker, no more, sticker only, do not pay the dealer markups. Do not buy it to make money as that wont happen. The car will depreciate for a good 10 years straight and if you take inflation into the calculation you are losing a ton of money. Its not a good investment if you expect money return on the sale.

The dealer has no ideas these guys are nut jobs looking to make a profit. I'm betting there won't be many but don't pay too much over sticker. I doubt you will find one @ sticker for a long time as A, D, X (ect..ect) Plans or any rebates won't apply to this. Keep your eyes out for the best deal is all u can do.
