2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 First Look and Photos - Motor Trend
I always thought the Boss 302 was one of the best looking Mustangs ever and now it's back and they said they're gunning for the BMW M5. Some things are new and high tech. Some things are old school (like lifting the hood and trunk to use a screw driver to adjust the suspension). Be sure to have a tissue handy to wipe the drool from the corner of your mouth before it hits the keyboard or computer screen.

I like the mach-1 concept better for outside looks but that boss mustang pulls down 1.0G of lateral grip that is amazing and in corvette territory.

Volt or a Mustang? I had to think about it as long as it took me to read the question....
Now if they ever get a Volt to ACT like a Mustang we might talk.

In Los Angeles it would be a toss up between appearing enviromentally conscience and being seen and noticed on Sunset Strip. In San Francisco and Berkeley, there would be no choice,...it would be the Volt. If I had $40,000 to throw at a vehicle I'd go for the Boss 302 and find a SCCA type track some where or pay to go to a professional driving school.

Why is the Volt priced at 40K to begin with?

Isn't that at least 10K too high?

12GO,

I am not expecting to win you over, given your "motto" just below your user name.

Anyway, something I need to get off my chest: Woud you really prefer for that Mustang not to have catalytic converters for example? Would you want to live in a muti-millon people city were non of the cars have them, were surounding factories and power plants have no air fiters and dump their toxic waste in rivers and lakes? That's why there needs to be an EPA etc.!

I am no tree hugger either and would prefer the Mustang myself but what's wrong with protecting our natural resources and the environment for generations to come? I obviously support your right to express your opinion etc but yours strikes me as, well, a bit ignorant maybe?
