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.

They are doing away with the v6. I kind of like my 2014 v6 for a daily driver. Not sure how the 4 cyl. would be in comparison because I have never driven one. For me, the 4 cyl. would be just a daily driver car. Nothing special like a GT or special edition would be. If I were getting one for my "fun" car, it would have to have the v8.

I'm happier with this hood than the original. It's a new turn on the old 1967-8 extractor hood.

My name is David J. Midgley. But you doesn't have to call me that. You can call me David. Or you can call me David J. Or you can call me David Midgley. But you doesn't have to call me David J. Midgley....

seriously, how easy would it be to make a 2018 Bullitt??? these photoshops show it. Make it green, take off the emblems, make it the track pack car, put some Bullitt symbols on it, and maybe the Ford performance upgrade 1 or 2. Would they have to pay a huge licensing fee for using the Bullitt name?

If I could just get those headlights on mine, I'd be pretty happy.

I agree, the front is killer, frankly not that FORD cares about one guys opinion but that would be the only way I would strongly consider buying a 'new age ' mustang .... the front and color on that is outstanding, one would hope it carried over to the rest of the car. ( it would be great to see how these folks 'rendered' the rest of the car... ) throw in everything the Boss 302 had plus some "bullitt" specific items and I think they would have a hit and not only with us bullittheads

just my .02 cents

It all boils down to "how many old timers are still alive and have enough money in the bank and are not too feeble to drive are there?"

And that's the truth.

And I think you're grossly overestimating the knowledge and interest that young whippersnappers have in the whole Bullitt mantra.

If I had a dime for every dumb look I got when I said "It's based on the '68 Mustang 390 GT that Steve McQueen drove in the movie 'Bullitt,'" I'd be rich.

What he said, The Movie was 49 years ago. The average 35 year old doesn't know and doesn't care about the Movie or the Man.

On the other hand, if I was in the market for a new 5.0 Coupe, mine would be green with Spoiler delete.
