Yes!!

Haven't been here in a while, but when I saw this on Jalopnik...I just about peed my pants.
Did The Rock Just Accidentally Leak Ford's New*Bullitt*Mustang?

I miss my '08 badly, and would be all over this in a heartbeat.

An '18 Bullitt? Anything is possible, I suppose. But I do keep in mind that the '08-'09 models were dogs as far as sales numbers are concerned. Ford does prefer to sell many cars...
The fact that Ford projected only 7700 for sales told me they knew it wasn't going to be over the top on sales. The same applies for the 01 model year projection of 6500. I doubt that it was too much of a detriment to their business case. As long as there is a business case whereby they sell more cars, than they would without the Bullitt model, and the investment, in the SE, differentiation isn't that great. So it's a low bar and a small number of the SE would be viable as a sales enticement.

nope with it. to do another Bullitt would require more copyright payments and as stated above, lackluster sales on the last rendition would tend to say no. I too think the Mach is due since there hasn't been one since 03-04 and no licensing needed for that one.

Wanna take a bet they'll do both? How about one in 2018, the Bullitt. And then two years of Mach 1 with a power adder. just like in 01, then 03-04.

Based on the rumblings we've heard on the Musang6g forum, this seems a more likely prospect, especially since both of these cars, I think, would play a similar role to the '01 Bullitt and the '03/'04 Mach 1 - prop up interest in the last few years of the current generation. The S650 has been said to arrive in 2020 (model year 2021, I believe). I don't think the "Warner Brothers/McQueen estate is difficult" applies since we've now had TWO versions

Darn it, Ford is sure trying to mess up my plans. Pay of mortgage later this year and be debt free by year end. Then retirement whenever I feel like.

If a new Bullitt comes out, do I get one? If I do, it will be in addition to my current one. How do I break the news to Wifey that vehicle #8 is on the way? As long as it is green, I think she will be good with it. So I work a couple more years.

Will be very interesting to get the specs when (if) a new Bullitt is announced. One area where I will disagree with most other here, I would like to see the automatic option. Me, like so many others, are getting up in the years and just getting lazy. I will keep the 08 for when I feel the need to bang gears but the automatic 2018 would be for cruising. Wifey would drive it more often also (maybe I need to rethink that Automatic thing ).

We'll see, said the blind man. Different situations for different folks. I'll be taking my 24,000 miles '09 to the dealership for driver's side airbag replacement this afternoon. Have oil & filter done while I'm at it.

I'm 73, already retired...at the rate I'm piling up the miles on the car, it may very well be my final one.

So...what Ford comes up with won't matter to me...

I am heavily "what-if"fing my finanaces right now And yes, you get it, retirement be darned. Mainly I am saying this to myself for the same reason - hahaha! Even if the engine wasn't updated, it still will be a 435+hp Bullitt without forced induction. Just give me that sound, styling cues, and a 6-speed manual, and I am there. I've spent over 2 years now with my '15 GT, and I absolutely love it. I know some don't like the styling, but there is enough '68 inspiration in the fastback profile and the hood that it works for me.

My mini-desire: they keep 'em all green, and I say this as someone who has a black '01.

Good thing we have these rumors to talk about, at least it is BULLITT related.

Someone with better numbers can correct me, but I remember hearing that it typically takes about 5000 cars to break even with a typical special edition type of car. If they sold as many as they did the last two times then it would pass that statistic. Not sure if that's the case any more. Speaking of unveilings, if I remember right, the '01's were revealed in Tulsa at the Shelby meet and the '08's were revealed in San Francisco. Here's a thought... '18 revealed during Woodward Dream Cruise week. Wouldn't that be convenient!

I would be really torn if they do an '18. I really want to keep my '08 since I bought it new, but I'd probably have to sell it to afford getting a new one (if I could even afford one after getting it sold). I think I'm already pushing it with having 2 cars that only get driven occasionally.

If Ford comes up with a 2018 Mach I or Bullitt, I will be ordering my first "ordered" car since my silver 1982 Mustang GT.

However, an automatic is a must. My left ankle and wife require an auto.

When flying home from work yesteday I spoke with a Ford engineer working on Mustangs and he would neither agree or disagree of the above special editions.

He said the 10 speed automatic is "awesome" with instant power everywhere.

Sounds good.

Whether 2019 brings a Mach 1, a Boss 302, or something else, I am gonna be one broke mofo for sure!
