Ford may no longer offer its Boss 302 package for the Mustang, but Ford Racing Parts has announced it will continue to offer the Mustang Boss 302S for the 2014 model year. Customers interested can now place their orders.
The model will be limited to only 50 units and it will be the last year the 302S will be offered before the next generation arrives on the market. The model is ready for track days and road racing in a number of SCCA and NASA classes, with minor modifications required by each series.

For the 2014 model year, the 302S will be offered in either Performance White or Grabber Blue, with Satin Black being offered as an option.
