Of all the places to find a news-breaking car source, a bookstore – in this case, Borders - is one of the unlikeliest places you can find one.
Then again, stranger things have happened and if we’re to believe a description from the book, Boss Mustang: The Return of the Baddest Mustang of all Time, then the reincarnation of the Boss 302 will be limited to only 8,000 units that will be built in a two-year span.
Breaking it down further, the book also says that, of the 8,000 units, 1,000 units – 500 each year – will be 302R race-spec models wit the remaining 7,000 units carrying the standard Boss 302 label.
We’re not sure how certain these numbers are, but if they came from a book solely devoted on the specific Mustang model’s rich history, then there must be, at the very least, a grain of truth behind it. And it’s not like the numbers were just thrown out of nowhere. The first incarnation of the Boss Mustang was also limited to two years with 4,000 vehicles being produced each year.
Take it for what it’s worth, but whatever production number it does come in, you can be sure that it’s going to sell like hotcakes when it’s released. So it’s probably a good idea to get yours as soon as they become available.
