Ford to revive Boss 302 Mustang with 2011 model? –

Ford has been scoring a lot of points with muscle car fans ever since it announced that for the 2011 model year, the Mustang will receive a 5.0-liter V8 engine, capable of 412 HP.

After that, the Blue Oval raised the nostalgia ante with the reveal of the Racing Mustang Boss 302R, which will hit at the end of the year and race in specific competitions. Performance upgrades were made and special suspension and braking systems were added to the ‘Stang.

Now, according to the guys at Mustang Heaven, Ford might be preparing something even more special for its fans. The company might introduce a road-legal version of the 302R race car, thus reviving the Boss 302 Mustang moniker. Those with a sharp memory remember that the name designated a performance Mustang model made in 1969 and 1970 that captured the hearts of many Blue Oval fans.

Now, we can’t say for sure if the company is preparing such a thing, but seeing as how the 2011 Mustang is already quite popular, a Boss 302 version might further augment sales and hype.
