Ford Motor Company has included an S197 Boss 302 in new Mustang marketing materials (http://www.torquenews.com/106/ford-could-be-hinting-new-mustang-mach-1-or-boss-302-trim) along with showing off a 1971 Mach 1 at the Chicago Auto Show, leading many vocal social media participants to insist that these are hints to future models so today we look at the likelihood of a new Mach 1 or Boss 302 Mustang.




The last time that Ford offered a Mach 1 Mustang was back in 2004 and the last Boss 302 Mustang was offered was in 2013 (shown above in Gotta Have It Green). However, there have been persistent rumors that Ford is working on one (or both) of these cars over the past few years, bolstered by things like unsubstantiated inside information, trademark filings and spy shot stories ripe with speculation. There has been no concrete proof of a new Mach 1 coming to the Mustang lineup since 2005, nor has there been any proof that there is a new Boss 302 on the way, but the rumors continue to pop up every time something new pops up on Facebook.

The newest bits of information which have once again rekindled the Boss 302 and Mach 1 rumors stem from the marketing information for the new 2018 Mustang and the Ford Motor Company display at the ongoing 2017 Chicago Auto Show.
