We have known for a little over a month now Ford is extending production of the Bullitt into the 2009 model year. Those details came out when Ford released the 2009 Mustang Order guides back in March showing a Bullitt model was available for order but there was no mention of how many 2009 Bullitts would be produced. Those details emerged last Friday via Dan Jarvis of FoMoCo who spoke with IMBOC.com and he confirmed Ford will not produce more than the previously stated 7,700 units which means there will only be about 2,100 units built for 2009.
"We absolutely will honor our original statement about building 7,700 Bullitts. We will not build BULLITT beyond the 7700 announced." Dan stated in email with IMBOC, "We built about 5,600 for the 2008 model year, and the rest will be 2009s."
