Same thing with the PP2. Photos leaked of what appears to be a PP2 mustang are already buzzing around, other ads with easter eggs to keep people guessing, the "accidental" background of the Rock video, and even now on the build site, when you click on the wheel image for an Eco-boost wheel option, it shows a mustang with the PP2 wheel. Come on, there aren't any accidents in these ginormous corporations that have entire divisions responsible for anti-corporate espionage.

My guess this window sticker is the same thing and the price probably isn't too far off given that a normal, run of the mill Mustang can quickly approach $50+ and by all accounts, the Bullitt will be a limited production model. Guarantee there will be dealer mark-ups well beyond the MSRP. Don't even get me started about the potential Mach 1...

My thoughts are that the Bullitt will be a very limited production model for 2018 only and then the Mach 1 for 2019 only. Both to celebrate the anniversaries of those two cars. The grand finale will be the Shelby GT500. After that, a completely new Mustang platform.

Car companies need to keep the buzz going and project sales and ways to keep things fresh and $$$$$ coming in for years out.

Anyone from Ford reading, I figured it out didn't I? ;-) If you're hiring, PM me, I love cars and would be happy to work with cars for the rest of my life.

You're certainly right that some leaks are intentional. Most are just another profession (auto paparazzi) being very good at their job, too. I can confirm, for instance, that the pic of the '15 without camo when being driven on the track at Grattan was NOT intentional. Raj Nair was PISSED about that. They combed the track grounds for spies but somehow that guy still managed to get in there.

I have to agree. Plus, the official release of any Bullitt confirmation could = even less interest in 2017s, which are apparently in high supply/low demand already.

"...somehow..." lol If they were that concerned, that car still would have been in camo wrap.

Can't do track cooling evaluation with the camo on.

You make it seem like these OEMs are government overlords. Sometimes they keep stuff well-hidden, sometimes they don't. The '15 F-150 was not spied w/o camo until after the reveal, for instance.

Ford has released more than a few mid year models over the years. The Bullitt could be released as a 2019 and be in dealers showrooms by next June.

Did not know that about the track cooling. Not even with a simple vinyl wrap? Not talking about the heavy duty covers and stuff. Just a vinyl wrap with dizzy swirls and the like.

They are!! lol They invest millions in keeping secrets. It's serious stuff to them. One of my previous neighbors was an intelligence specialist for Dodge. Whatever the heck that was. He wouldn't talk too much about the details for fear of instantly losing his job. Crazy stuff. They had (still have?) a test track way out in the middle of nowhere in the Arizona (where I lived at the time) desert locked down like Area 51. Was like 4 miles long or something. Its where they tested the original vipers before anyone knew they existed.

Pretty cool stuff actually.

The Ford Maverick is a compact car that was manufactured by Ford from April 1969 to 1977 in the United States, Venezuela (first country outside the States to produce them), Canada, Mexico, and, from 1973 to 1979, in Brazil — employing a rear-wheel drive platform dating to the original 1960 Falcon. Originally marketed as a two-door sedan at a price of $1,995,[4][5] the Maverick was designed to be inexpensive to manufacture and maintain.[6][7][8][9]

The name "maverick" was derived from the word for unbranded range animals, and the car's nameplate was stylized to resemble a longhorned cow head.

Of course there will be a Bullitt. It's silly to believe that there will not be one.

The price on the genereated window sticker is obviously wrong. If you spec out a GT Premium 401A with Performance Package, Safe & Smart Package, Security Package, Active Exhaust, Shaker Pro and Destination you're at 51,465. So that means the Bullitt Package would be an additional 4,615, which is absurd and therefore incorrect.
