The all-new S650 2024 Ford Mustang was revealed in September 2022 with deliveries beginning this past summer, though the new lineup, well, it looks a little different than the outgoing S550 model’s. At the moment, the only variants one can choose from are the EcoBoost, GT, and the new Dark Horse, as the GT500 bowed out after the 2022 model year. Regardless, the new version of the latter range-topping pony car is already testing – as Ford Authority exclusively reported back in April – and a recent report indicates that an off-road focused Mustang Raptor (and/or maybe a Raptor R?) is poised for a 2026 debut, too. As for the possibility of an S650 Ford Mustang Bullitt, well, that’s also seemingly quite strong, which prompted we here at Ford Authority to render what such a machine might look like.
Conjuring up this hypothetical S650 Ford Mustang Bullitt wasn’t terribly difficult, as The Blue Oval has followed a similar recipe for the SN95, S197, and S550 versions of the famous, movie-inspired variant. That includes the model’s signature Highland Green paint, which is a must, though the prior-gen Bullitt was also offered in Shadow Black. Additional exterior changes included black 19-inch five-spoke wheels, a spoiler and badge delete, chrome trim on the side windows and grille, and a faux gas cap. Many of those same elements have been incorporated into these renderings, and they blend nicely with the S650’s updated styling, we think.
Inside, the S550 Bullitt featured a white shift knob, a digital instrument cluster with a unique Bullitt welcome screen, and a leather-trimmed interior with unique green accent stitching on the dashboard, door panels, center console, and seats. That model was powered by an upgraded version of Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8, which produces 480 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque and is mated exclusively to the MT82 six-speed manual transmission, though it seems likely that an S650 version would offer more power, and perhaps maybe even the Tremec six-speed present in the new Dark Horse.
The very last Mustang Bullitt rolled off the production line at the Flat Rock Assembly plant in late 2020, but this has become the norm for the Bullitt – which has historically existed as a limited-production variant within the pony car lineup, one that comes along for a couple of years and then goes away for a while. Regardless, given how incredibly popular it has proven to be in the past, it seems almost inevitable that we’ll see an S650 Ford Mustang Bullitt at some point during the current generation’s life cycle.
