2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS Spied Late Night in Milford, Sounding Incredible

Will the 2015 Ford Mustang Boss Be a Road Car or a Race Car?

While we were so focused on the news that the 2015 Ford Mustang will almost surely come in Shelby GT350 trim with a new 5.2L V8 engine, we looked over another interesting piece of information in the dealership parts guide images posted by Mustang6g.com – the mention of a new “Boss Racing” package that has us wondering whether there could be a new Boss road car or if it will be another road racing special.

One of my regular readers emailed me the picture above of a 2015 Ford F150 Lightning rendering, asking me if it something like this is coming and while I don’t know if we are likely to see a new Lightning for the new model year – this image definitely shows that the 2015 F150 could be converted into one great looking sport truck.
