    The Bullitt motor definitely seems like it will be returning in something.

    The N/A 5.2 CPC has had too many rumors to not appear.

    The 7.3 requires an aluminum block to be viable. But a Boss 429 using an aluminum block 7.0 would be incredible and maybe even pull in some Chevy Fanboys that are OHV or die.

    The 3 cylinder 1.5 ecoboost from the Fiesta ST gives about 200 hp and over 215 lb.ft. Add a couple of electric motors and a few batteries and you could have the new CO2 saving Mustang version. A bit like BMW do with the i8.

    In the second video clip it definitely seems a little wider in the back to me. The hood vents are more aggressive too. Releasing an awesome Mach 1 next year would probably help a lot with softening the blow of putting a Mustang Mach E badge on that electric SUV around the same time.

    Which works out great as the i8 is slower than the GT. It'll slot in above the EB perfectly. Not a bad way to save $90k :giggle:.

    I am sure the rear fenders are not wider. If the GT500 didn’t get that treatment then this car won’t either.

    Yeah, the rear fenders are surprisingly wide stock [on the S550], but they can seem more so just due to lighting, angle, ride height (lower kind of widens it out).

    Side note ... this shows the GT500 front fender poke compared to the rear fenders.

    I am guessing these widened fenders will slot in around the 350 dimensions. Enough to better fit the PP2 aggressive rims.

    It is probably just a updated PP2 car.

    However, Ford should make a Mach 1 and a Boss 302, and a Boss 429 and a street legal cobra jet. Anything else I’m forgetting???

    Well they dont wanna hurt sales on the GT500 so they cant build a 429 imo within a dollar value, maybe we could see a BOSS 302..I doubt we will see a Street Legal Cobra Jet

    I would buy a 2020 Mach 1 or Boss 302 as long as it has the A10 option

    Sorry....couldn't get through all 9 pages. Got through the first four. The car definitely has manufacturer plates so it isn't anybody's garage shop project. Doesn't have to be Ford though. Could just as easily be Roush or Saleen. There are funny stories going around town about how Rivian put Ford, Chevy, and Ram bodies on their EV chassis and drove them around with M-plates. Everybody was scrambling to report they had seen prototypes of Ford, Chevy or Ram electric trucks. It was Rivian (whom most people had not yet heard of) all that time. Would have fooled me too.

    I know Ford won’t make all those cars, I just wish they would.
