It wasn’t so long ago that Ford unveiled the Boss 302R at the 2010
Detroit Auto Show.
It was a fully caged and bare bones race car made a lot of enthusiasts
hopeful for a street going variation as the race-car was limited to a
production run of only 50. It’s been confirmed today in Monterey,
California, 41 years later after the initial introduction of the first Boss
in 1969, that there will indeed be a new Ford Mustang Boss 302 for 2012.

The original Boss 302 came into existence for homologation rules in SCCA’s
Trans-Am racing series back in 1969. It won with Parnelli Jones behind the
wheel in 1970. But today Ford’s not trying to beat the Camaro at the track
in formal competition; instead they’ve targeted the Germans, specifically
the 2010 BMW M3. A car that until recently would have easily been considered
in a different class, and stiff competition to even an SVT Shelby prepped
car. But Ford has benchmarked it and claim to lap Mazda Raceway, Laguna
Seca, quicker.

In honor of this and the fact that Parnelli Jones won the 1970 T/A race at
Laguna Seca, there will be a Boss 302 Laguna Seca Model offered in limited
quantity. As one might expect the 2012 Boss 302 will use many of the parts
developed for the track dedicated 302R, but remain 100-percent street legal.

Mustang Chief Engineer, Dave Pericak says, “The team at Ford wanted to offer
their fellow Mustang enthusiasts something really special – a beautifully
balanced factory-built race car that they could drive on the street…this is
a front-to-back re-engineered Mustang with every system designed to make a
good driver great and a great driver even better.”
