I'd sell my soul to the devil to have my '09 Bullitt back. No, it hasn't been overplayed.

They will easily sell them all. Double that for a Mach 1 with ay kind of performance boost.

I am a huge fan of the 08-09 Bullitt but to me this looks like a long BMW. The 08-09 had a strong lineage to the original. It was still a muscle car, not a pretender BMW like the current Mustang.

I guess I just said it out loud internet style. More than likely I'm becoming a grumpy old man lost in the recent past, lol.

A Bullitt or a Mach 1 or both will be nice.

I think a Mach 1 would need a new Road Runner engine so be different enough like new edges got the 4v 4.6L. Doubt Ford will do that but a new Bullitt could work. Come from the factory with the coyote but GT350 intake manifold, CAI, throttle body. Then some unique S550 panels. That I think that would work well.

The more specialty models the better, I say! Give me regular ole GT, a Mach 1, a Boss, a Bullitt, a Cobra, a GT350, AND a GT500!

There should be no Bullitt after the 08-09 version, it was close to perfect and I think it is time to retire it.

To me it is time to come out with new names for special editions. The car is supposed to be more worldly, maybe it is time to retire the muscle car names?

Agreed ! The Bullitt was already brought back twice, first on the SN-95 platform and once again on the S197.. As previously mentioned, the 08-09's were closest to the original 68.. If Ford on the other hand wants to revive another past variant, then resurrect the Mach 1.. It's been 13 years since the last production model was in existence on the SN-95 platform..

They can't come out with a new Bullitt...I don't have the cash and/or garage space to get one. :(

I'm ready. Take my money.

If the grille is matte and blacked out that's definitely an improvement over the 2018's glossy grille.

A live axle MACH 1 with the expected power bump would be the shit!
