I agree, comparing a 2001 Camaro SS to a 2003 Mustang Cobra is wrong. So is comparing a 2002 Corvette Z06 to a 2000 Mustang Cobra R. Th 5.4L V8 in the Cobra R is the best engine I have seen in a long time from an American Car. It makes mor power per liter than the Z06. Sure the Cobra R costs $54000, but I saw the sticker price on a Corvete was $52000, and it wasn't even a Z06. A Mustang Cobra is a better performance value than a Camaro SS. The Cobra costs $29000 and the Camaro SS costs $32000. Wit the $3000 you save, you can get exhaust, intake, and computer mods, plus killer stereo system. That is why Mustangs outsell Camaros.
