This is one discussion where I have a little mixed emotions.
On one hand I would like to see a new version just to continue the line of "Bullitt" special editions. That just puts a spotlight on all versions of Bullitts.
On the other hand, I like how our Bullitts are somewhat exclusive as there were only two versions of them.
Now the honest answer, I am afraid that I may be tempted by a newer Bullitt. It would have to be Highland Green (or a similar dark green color). One thing, I will never, ever, absolutely never purchase a Mustang with a 4-banger, boosted or not. If they equip the next Bullitt with a 4-banger, then the decision is easy....NO WAY.
There is NO chance of a Bullitt coming with anything other than a V8. Period.
And considering Ford's refusal to put any kind of automatic in cars like the GT350, Focus RS, Focus ST and Fiesta ST, I think there is a high likelyhood that a future Bullitt would be a manual-only model, too. The new GT features a dual clutch, but at that level of performance, the you basically NEED that to be able to get everything out of the car, even if it may be less engaging to drive. I could see the upcoming GT500 getting an automatic as many use it for drag racing (and many of the people who will buy them are, let's say, 'mature'. But on something like a Bullitt, I think manual-only is likely.
And let's be honest, our Bullitts are just a GT with a few extra goodies. If someone wants an automatic, they can buy a regular GT and get 90% of the performance, but if they want the special edition, they should have to conform to it only being a manual.
I think with Bullitt, too, there is always the conversation of "what would Steve McQueen/Frank Bullitt want?" And I think we can all say that isn't a 10-speed automatic...
