  1. Great car I have had a few.
     
  2. All right, all right, just kidding about Camaros !!

    Too bad GM don't care about all of you at all. They don't realize that are a lot of people trying to buy this car...<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. $30,000, 0 to 60 in 4.8 seconds

    best car for the money
     
  4. Hey I own a Cobra myself best damn car I ever bought and funny enough I am only 17. Boy best car for the money!
     
  5. I'm gonna agree with ya'll on this, i personally can't think of a better performance car for the money. I'm kinda getting sick of hearing about how awesome the Camaro SS is when the Cobra in good conditions will kick its ass. 5.2 to 4.8, Mustangs the better car, plus its nice to be able to corner which the mustang will do better then the camaro at. I'm gettin one of these for college, still not sure if i want coupe or convertible, but doesn't really matter, either way it's better then any chevy out there.
     
  6. I am a Die-Hard Mustang fan, and I would take a Cobra over an SS anyday, but I think it was wither Road & Track or Car & Driver that put it best, The Camaro is a better muscle car, and the Cobra is a better sports car.

  8. Agreed..<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Further more, only the LS1 can touch the Cobra in the old "price/performance" category.

    What's wrong with this picture is those are old reviews and we're talking about the 01 Mustang Cobra. The 01 Cobra cannot be compared to the 99 Cobra. The 99s had horse power issues that needed to be worked out, the 98s and below don't have the 99 upgrades, the 00 Cobra wansn't made so Ford can work out the bugs. The result? A kick ass 2001 Mustang Cobra.

    I used to be a Mustang guy (01 Saleen S281), and I now own a Corvette. You're doing yourself a disservice if you think that everything Ford does sucks, and visa versa for the Ford guys. <!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Yeah, and for less than $10K more, get a car that looks twice as nice, is twice as durable, is half a second faster, and has twice the reputation! Vettes are the Road Warriors!
     
  14. Or for 5k get a supercharge Cobra and beat your Z06 which doesn't look better than this beauty in my opinion.
     
  15. Everytime I hear a Camaro fan talking about how nice their 5.7 L is I think about how Ford is 5 HP off of the 5.7 L with a 4.6 L hmm do the math and see what a Cobra could do if Ford made a 5.7. Anyway we all know that the Cobra vs. SS on a road course would tear up the SS thanks to the great IRS and suspension, and what the Cobra is just a tad bit slower than the SS on the 1/4 well it does have 5 less HP and quite a bit less torque yet its still over a full Liter smaller. Anyone heard anything on the 02 Cobras? I heard they were getting a boost in power, also heard rumors about the 5.0 coming back with an estimated 350 HP wouldnt that be something to have? Pony Pride......<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. The 2003 Cobra will have 390 horsepower from a roots supercharger. It will not give up the IRS and will be a little more $$$. I think Ford mighta killed the terminator project and I haven't heard of the 5.0 coming back.

  18. With $10,000 more for a vette. Let me break it down for you.
    With $10,000 more modifications on a 01 Cobra .... God damn
    I wont even see a vette in my rear view. So Get OOFFF my dic$

    I heard that the terminator was cancelled for a special 2003 Cobra (never trust blue oval news), so this terminator, will it be NA with 450? And I'll assume they're just stroking the 4.6 4V, not going back to pushrods.

    No, it's not better than an SS(fact). The best bang for the buck is the LS1 f-bodies. They are faster and handle better than mustangs.
    A cobra is a nice car, but needs alot of improvement. You ever see the HP specs on a supercharged stang, not so impressive, is it. If Ford would put a bigger small-block in (350,383,327) they would be better. 4.6L just don't cut it.<!-- Signature -->

    GTs get low 14s. Cobras will get 13s consistently.

    http://www.caranddriver.com/xp/Caranddriver/roadtests/2001/July/200107_roadtest_svtcobra.xml?Manufacturer=Ford&Name=Mustang&class=22

    And the Cobra, with independent rear suspension, is a very well balanced car that handles better than an SS. I prefer the DOHC Cobra over the SS, but like you said, I wish they would just make it a little bigger so it wouldn't have a problem with an SS.
     
  22. what are you smokin? constant 13's you mean a F-BODY all LT1 LT4 LS1
    so you don't know what your talkin about cause how come a stock 97' Z28 like when my Z28 i was bringing it home. can beat a 2002 COBRA.
    But now its an SS conversion. hahaha

    both my cars on the pics that have KILLED HORSES if you know what i mean<!-- Signature -->

    No. YOU don't know what you are talking about. You are thinking about the 99 Cobra the 2001 Cobra DOES run mid to high 13s.

    How can you beat a 2002 Cobra when it hasn't even come out yet???
     
  24. You who calls himself "BAD ... AMERICAN ..." and 94FORMULA frequently writes a lot of nonsense posts.

    You simply write what's in your own mind with nothing which can prove what are you saying.

    Look we have all the internet just here to check what you're saying.

    And we know this all doesn't makes any sense.

    If I trust in everithing you and 94FORMULA says I will soon start thinking that your car and the '78 94FORMULA's Malibiu are the best "Muscle Cars" in the uuniverse.

    There's nobody who trust in you. The proof is the market. Everybody wants Mustangs or Vettes. Nobody wants a Camaro anymore.<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. Chill out on the "nobody likes camaros" crap.
    BAD ASS AMERICAN CARS obviously hates these car's guts.(mustangs)
    I kinda like them. A cobra is a pretty sweet car.
    Hey, both are hell of alot better than a civic.<!-- Signature -->
