2018 2019 mach 1
#1
Heard rumors that the mach 1 will make a return for 2018 or 2019. 2019 would be 50th anniversary edition. Has anyone else heard any rumors? I may really consider getting one!

According to this website, quoting "Automotive News", it'll be 2018:

If it is like all the Mach 1's in past will just be some stickers and name plates. Nothing on a Mach 1 any year that added performance that was not available on other models. That is how the car companies make big money sell you the hype for lots of cash and give you a few stickers & trim in return. The Boss cars gave you something different but not the Mach 1. Sort of selling you a makeup job not performance.

I always liked the looks of the mach 1 though. The shaker scoops and interior. If the price was not crazy I'd be interested.

That is even true of our cars, right? Mine was born as a Mach 1 with a few nice guages and the comfort weave interior, a scooped hood and the Mach 1 decals, grille, gas cap and honeycomb. The performance was a snoozer for the day. 351C 2v/ FMX/ 3.00:1 open rear end and single exhaust.

Just sayin, the Mach 1 package has always been a trim package more than a performance upgrade.

Idiots. They posted Eleanor (not a Mach 1) and called her a Mach 1. More proof that everybody simply thinks that all 71-73s are Mach 1s.

Stickers, rims, and name plates. I wonder (doubt, actually) if they'll carry through with the '05' in the VINs.

The 03-04 Mach 1's had a unique powertrain that was close to a Cobra engine but tuned for more low end torque. If they came out with another one I think it would have a unique powertrain as well. Also had a functional shaker hood too!

Like David had posted, the sportsroof could be ordered with the same content the (05) Mach1 could be minus the "Mach1" decals and the chrome exhaust tips (71-72 on the tips).
As mwilson7 mentioned, the 03-04 Mach1 became a little more entitled to wear the Mach1 name. Upgraded interior and trim along with unique instrument clusters, wheels, brakes, etc made this one a much different car from the GT. It had the 4.6 DOHC engine minus the Terminator's (Cobra) supercharger. Plus...it had the Shaker Ram air system just like on the Boss Mustangs. This same engine also saw use in the 03-04 Mercury Marauder.
So I look for Ford to come up with some good stuff if they do indeed build a Mach1 on the present Mustang chassis. Ford along with a lot of "Tuners' have been getting some insane power and horsepower numbers out of the new Coyote 5.0 engine. The different variations and special editions Ford has released in the present and the previous chassis (S-197 2005-2014) have been nothing short of amazing. Boss 302's, 662HP GT500's, Trac Keys, Brembo brakes, something for everyone's wish list!

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

It will be interesting to see what Ford comes up with.

I thought the 03 04s where cool.
