Ordered: 2021 Mach 1
Tonight, I just gave cc# to my local dealer for $500 deposit, 1st allocation.
My 15gt, 72month loan will be paid off the day I get the Mach1 in March.
Finally able to get a gt350 looking front end for ~$50k in a limited edition mustang with the Mach badge
I’m stoked!!
It’s a gorgeous car!
You were able to find a dealership taking a deposit? I had called dealerships last week and the best I got was them putting my name on a list and offering to call when they got the order guide. Guess I’ll call around again tomorrow.

Yeah, the sales guy I’ve gotten to know loves sports cars too. He had an orange pp2 and just traded it in for the camaro zl1.
He contacted me and said it sounded exactly like what your looking for. Do you want to be first on our allocation list? Had to beg the wife a little and done.
Now I need details, color wheel combo without the handling package concerns me.

Love the front fascia. It went from catfish to shark.
What the 18+ should have looked like from the start tbh.

I was the 2nd owner of an 04 Screaming Yellow Mach 1 for 8 years. Out of the 6 Mustangs I have owned since I started driving, that is still my favorite to this day (I would still have it if a teenage girl didn't sideswipe me :crying: ). I feel this model fails in two areas IMO. No Shaker and no increase in power to make it unique. I loved explaining to people that the 03-04 Mach 1s were NOT just a GT with some cosmetic changes. This is literally a Bullitt with suspension and cooling mods. You can't argue that. Ok, the Tremec, but does that really make it special? I know the aftermarket will react with a shaker kit, but it really should have come on the car. A shaker and a bump in power robbed Ford from releasing another icon.

I am still holding out for power as all of the press releases state it is "projected" to have 480 HP. Hopefully Ford is still working on this number.

And yes, I know very well that the original Machs only came with a shaker as an option. When you have a trim that is known for a shaker, which the 03-04s help cement in our heads AND a competitor (The Challenger) has their own version available RIGHT NOW, I think it was a huge missed opportunity. I love Ford and all Mustangs, but man.. they missed the mark here IMO.

I bet if the early sketches are released we will see numerous models with Shaker hoods.

Mach 1 looks good, but power wise it's a disappointment. Wish it came with GT350 cylinder heads, or ported 18 heads, bigger valves, Magnum XL trans or DCT from GT500. It's just a better looking Bullitt or a PP2. Still looks good.

Only ONE thread talking about this car / the new details? Oi, not alot of excitement.

Depending on the brakes on this car, really, it is a GT350 with a Bullitt Coyote motor... Unless the brakes aren't as good as a 350. I WOULD be excited (for the kind of racing I want to be doing, I am leaning towards a PP2... and just do a transmission swap to a Tremec). The cost is a huge thing, Bullitt didn't and hasn't sold worth a damn (it's a snooze fest imo), and this WILL be more money. Might be better off, for the price, getting a used GT350. I prefer the Analog gauges, esp with the fact the consumer pays more for the Digi Dash... Groan.

OMG. I just read the Autoblog article linked in the first post and that thing is BUTT UGLY. I agree with every single person who has talked up the 2003-04 Mach 1's - now THEY were awesome. I had a 2003 Cobra but always was envious of the Machs.

And don't get me started about 2012-13 Boss 302s. I'd still buy one of those if the opportunity presented itself.

But this just comes off as an attempt to cobble together existing parts and put some stickers on it to make it different and squeeze as much $$ out of the public as possible without actually giving us anything unique and with substance.

Many here seem to be dissapointed in the projected HP number of 480. I get the feeling that FoMoCo shied away from the earlier estimate of 525 HP because 480 HP is easier to clear in global markets, especially with those restrictive Eurocrats.

The car is gorgeous. After seeing it in person, and talking to the crew hauling them around to show, I am glad I bought my car when I did. I cannot afford it, my wife would divorce me, but I would have bought it. As for those who want it to have more power, get a GT500. Or buy one and put a blower on it. Most people do not have the skills to properly take advantage of that much power, and then get paranoid about accidents until that high dollar car gets little actual use.

Yep all the Karens here getting riled up over "only" 480 hp when it explicitly states projected in the press release. Car markers don't use that terminology if the number has been set in stone. People forget that this car is homologated to other places besides us.
