    Bigger engine? I think not. More hp maybe.

    Corvette, overrated? Actually it's motor is underrated by 20-30hp.

    Even so I understand what you're trying to say.<!-- Signature -->

    Beware the idiots who buy the 2003 Cobra...they pay thousands of dollars extra for a supercharger and an iron block because the idiots at Ford kept blowing engines up...and the Vette would pass up the Cobra like it was a dog chained to a tree<!-- Signature -->

    It really is funny. You speak without any facts to back you up. The cobra costs less and has more horsepower. and a zo6? thats apples to oranges bro. the cobra and the vette and around the same price range. if anything compare zo6 to the gt40 and see who comes out ahead. and if its like you say ill bet its snowing in hell today.
     
  7. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    Well The corvette is supposed to be a premium sports car NOT a muscle car. WIth the Cobra you get more hp but in a less aerodynamic body so your gas mileage is worsr than the corvette. Also the top speed is higher in the corvette and the technology is higher. ANother thing is when people see a corvette they think WOW thats a nice car that must have cost alot when people see mustang they think WOW a mustang just cause it is one. Also once you stick a Supercharger on a Corvette um gee now where did that cobra go?<!-- Signature -->

    dude...have you ever BEEN in one of these things??????

    Stats are one thing but being in the car driving down the highway or doing a zero to sixty run (the stats should have this) and it was LESS than 4 seconds. if you haven't been in both of them and compared don't try to compare by just the stats, else you'd be able to say a friggin' slow ass ford would beat a ferrari. WHY? because the stats cannot be used as genuine etc. the only way to say one way or another is if you have first hand knowledge and experience.

    A Cobra touching a vette? nahh i really dont think so. I mean come on, they need a damn supercharger to catch up with chevys base vette. I mean on the drag the 03 Cobra and a Corvette Coupe are gonna be pretty close. But ya know that vettes gonna beat the cobra upside its head in every other catagory possible like style, comfort, quality, handeling, track performance. Since fords so tough why dont they try going after the ZO6? OH and that GT40 talk isn't even worth the time. Thats the dumbest looking car ive ever seen. Wait till the c6's and the 550-600hp turbo options.
     
  10. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    Do all you want to a mustang its still based on a 1978 Fairmont Chassis and its preformance will suffer because of it.
     
  11. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    Dude, you need to realize that horsepower and toque isn't everything. That Mustang weighs close to 3800lbs in convertible trim. The Corvette weighs in at a mere 3200lbs I guess that compensates for that extra 40hp. Not to mention that the Corvette is built for maximum comfort as well as being fast. It also has another thing that most Mustangs don't....class. Mustangs are a dime a dozen but you dont see Corvettes around every corner. Plus the Cobra is a supped up Mustang, lets take a bone stock Mustang with no options what so ever and lets take a Corvette with no options and race em.
     
  12. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    well first off, i saw first hand, yes FIRST HAND, a new 2003 Cobra get tested on a dyno and it only had about 260 hp, and i saw the first 2003 mach 1 in my city get tested on the dyno, and it had about 300 hp, now tell me if im wrong, does this sound like a car that could beat this stock 2001 vette?? let alone the Zo6!! and yes hell will freeze over when a cobra will beat this, oh and from what satan tells me... its hot as hell down there, if not hotter. the only good mustangs were the GT500s and they werent really that good either, but they look sweet, but the 67 vette l88 looks much better!!
     
  13. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    How about the 50th aniversary vette. 0-60 in 5.1? Lets see what mustangs could beat it. Cobra, Bullitt, Saleen 281, Roush State 2 and 3, Roush 360R, Boss, Saleen S281-E, Saleen SR. Oh wait you may say how about this one 0-60 in 4.5 The 03 Mustang Cobra does the same time, the Saleen is even faster going under 4 seconds. And hell didnt even freeze over. Im not critizing you, I love Vettes but really there are more mustangs that can beat vettes than there are vettes.
     
  14. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    Beware of the idiots who think the only difference between a GT and a Cobra is a supercharger. Besides last time checked superchargers cost thousands of dollars.
     
  15. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    I think my screen name says it all, most people that drive mustangs simply can't afford corvettes and it seems they try and try to out do them out of jealousy. When I think of mustang I think of white trash or maybe a highschool kid, dime a dozen is right on the head! I also think about a pile of shit that holds its value as well as most Fords... hmmm I think I saw an 02 cobra conv for sale for under 20k in the paper. People who drive corvettes don't drive them for the horsepower, we drive them for the exhileration and the style, we also drive them because we can AFFORD to. I have done a few things to my vette on the dyno it was pushing 424 HP and I did it all for under $4,000.00, if you think I need to beware of the new 03 cobra then think again! On a side not even IF and huge IF a mustang were to beat me in a race, I would still laugh because even all the horsepower in the world will NEVER make a mustang as classy and sexy as a vette....LOL
     
  16. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    So youre saying that Mustangs are poor peoples Corvettes? What about the Saleen SR thats not as classy as a Corvette at a retail value of over $170,000
     
  17. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    I think you mean "More hp? I think not. Maybe bigger engine."

    The 2003 Mustang Cobra has 390hp this has 350hp.

    The Vette engine is WAY bigger dude it's a 5.7L while the Mustang is 4.6
     
  18. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    The vettte would destroy the cobra. No questions.

    Displacement is not physical size, nor represents weight of the engine. The LS1 and LS6 are significantly lighter and physically smaller than the Mustang's 4.6-5.0L engines. Why dont you guys find a friggen article or something instead of argue mindlessly... Here
    http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/coupe/112_0305_cobvet/
    MotorTrend took a 03 'vert Corvette against a 03 'vert SVT Cobra.
    Corvette
    0-60: 4.72
    1/4M: 13.02
    Slalom: 66mph

    SVT Cobra
    0-60: 4.86
    1/4M: 13.12
    Slalom: 64mph

    It was a very close comparison in strait line performance but the Vette took win. But when the corners came, the vette clearly outmached it competitor (like always). So stop arguing! There 2 great cars that are on different concepts, one is a musclecar, and the other a sports car.
     
  20. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    They are different kinds of fast and quickness. The Vette is more top speed. The Cobra has more gettyup.
     
  21. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    No, like my post above the corvette is quicker, faster and handles better.
     
  22. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    Yea i guess you are right about that but i have to say that a Corvette cant handle good.... good for an american but really no american car can handle very good just because we want the power we dont car about the handling (except the Ford GT it handles great <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A> )
     
  23. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    You are seriously a complete moron, the corvette outhandles almost every car in its class and is equil to the 911 turbo, name a car that is in the price range of the vette that can out handle it.
     
  24. Re: Owners of the Corvette: Beware the 2003 Cobra, it WILL eat y

    Again i was more talkin about this model rather than Z06 and some of the better made production Vettes. Sry for offendin ya lol i wasnt saying that Vettes cant handle...... They are in Le Mans and i love Le Mans lol and Le Mans is almost centered around handling so i just meant some of these earlier models and some of the lesser production ones cant handle as good. Sry everyone!!!
     
  25. Re:

    Ummmmmm.....yeah the Cobra might beat this vette but it took Ford a supercharger to do it.
