Softest Muscle Car Rollout Ever: 2011 Ford Mustang GT and BOSS 302R

Ford decided not to give the new Ford Mustang GT, its all-new V-8 engine, or the Boss 302R racing model, any official time in the limelight—no heavy-metal music, no sounds of burnouts, no revving of the new V-8, even. In fact, the 302R didn't even make it to the show in time for the press days, with people on the Ford stand citing a "snag" (we couldn't find a better explanation). Perhaps it would have taken the fizz out of Ford's big announcement moving battery and hybrid-component production to Michigan? But if Ford wanted to keep the Mustangs on the down low, Michigan State Senate majority whip Jason Allen didn't allow us to completely forget about them, saying that everyone should "check out Mustang Alley over there, they're great cars, and that's how we roll here in Michigan."
