And yes, another fake shelby it seems. They seem intent on riding out the name for marketing/sales.

I don't think ford'll be making a mach 1 for some time. They permanantly retired the name in 04. It hasn't been long enough, compared to the permanant retirement of "cobra" after the cobra 2

Where did you read that they "permanently" retired these names?

???

The first year or two of the foxbody Mustang had Cobra as the top trim. If it was retired, it wasn't with the Cobra II.

This is a '79 Cobra:



More on topic, I'd really like to see Ford stop flogging the Shelby horse for a while. As soon as a Shelby badge gets put on a car, $5-10k gets tacked on to the price. Give me an N/A SVT Cobra again, leave the blower on the shelf for a different model.

I kinda have to lean toward this. I don't think ford would be dumb enough to release a special/high end model the first year of a brand new chassis

I dunno... making special editions is like printing money. Even if people can't afford the SE, it makes it easier to justify a GT when it's not the most expensive. "Honey, the GT was a compromise; I wanted the Twister Special, but saved $5k getting this instead."

I'm guessing Ford will continue their current setup of three consistent models (base/V8/hi-po V8) and a rotating a special edition that changes about every two years. To that end it makes perfect sense that we'll see a Cobra, a Mach 1, and probably 3 or 4 others before the S550's successor debuts.

So what a Mach 1 version have a different body style? Maybe full fastback shape like the original Mach 1? Would be cool.

They should have fastback for all of them. But no, i think the mach 1 rumored would be a coupe

More likely is that it would have matte black chin and decklid spoilers, specific wheels, Mach 1 graphics, a shaker hood setup, specific interior (different gauge faces, different seats), different shocks/springs, different mufflers, and an upgraded engine (at least over GT). I.e. pretty much the same differences there were between the NE Mach 1 and GT.

A separate bodystyle would require a separate body, which greatly increases the cost of producing the model.

Now I would love to see another foxbody-like hatchback, but I highly doubt that will ever happen again.

The Mach rumored to come out as early as 2017. . . Not the first year the new chasis launches.
