Re: The Corvette doesn't matter...

Discussion in '2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra' started by chevy freak, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. And...will you buy the camaro where ?<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. The Corvette doesn't matter...

    Don't look to Corvettes..

    Where are all the Chargers, Magnums, Javelims, Chevelles, 'Cudas, Chalengers, Road Runners, LeBarons, Darts, Demons...?
    And now, the two new members of the club ...Camaros and Firebirds ?

    The Mustang has eclipsed the "bright" of all of them.

    They were all depreciated and loose somewhere in time...

    The Corvette is only the next to enter the track, the next fight, the next to loose... Watch out GM !

    The Mustang was never purpose to fight Corvettes, but now you (Corvette Lovers) comming here are sharing the GM feeling...

    You knows, The Mustang had entered in the ring.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Sorry, son. The Vettes here to stay. The Z06 will eat this thing alive. <!-- Signature -->
     
  4. a stock vett would destroy this thing, being a large bodyied pony car there is no way (even with a power advantage) that it can compete on a track or in twisties on the road, and with the weight disadvantage it has, the regular vette is probably pretty close in acceleration as well
     
  5. That's what every loser says before die.

    You're all here 'cos you're afraid.

    GM says Camaro will kill us, he lose. Firebird will, lose.
    All cars I listed, the same history... They will won.... they lose.

    Statistically speaking.... what you're saying means nothing...

    Why you all never went to the MUSTANG BOSS site ? We're alone there...

    The PRODUCTION Cobra today is the yesterday LIMITED COBRA R, who will be the tomorow's BOSS ?

    <!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Can you really say that the Corvette has any competition at all? The mustang costs and does less, the Viper costs twice as much, and only does a little more. The best performance value by far is the Corvette. The Mustang is still out of its league, and always will be.<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. the corvette is the only domestic car i respect, the rustang is a POS, used to be good but is now a chick car. now just so this doesn't turn into a import vs domestic thread, there are few imports i respect as well.
     
  8. The Mustang is a car to race on streets, there a lot of strets where the corvette will never go well.

    Had you drove one ?


    It's a car projected to race tracks. It will never had the best price for a street race. It's a fiberglas car. If you put this in a street race in San Francisco it will broke in two or more pieces... Come On<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. hey Lido did you work for ford in the 60's
     
  10. While it's probably not the smartest thing for someone to do I've seen my share of Vettes rip s**t up on the streets, and let me tell you my friend, when the guy (or girl) finally backed off the throttle that thing was still in one solid sexy piece. Add to that, that my friend and his dad considered buying a Corvette Coupe and took that sucker out for a test drive. I believe my friend when he told me that the car held on to the ground like a baby holds on to his/her bottle. And this is coming from a guy who's dad now owns an M Roadster. I still think he shoulda got the Vette though.
     
  11. for one thing the mustang could never compete with the Camaro or FireBird preformance wise it is and all ways will be a slow pos
    unless you go back to the only good ones Cobra Jets and stuff like that. All ford ever does is throw a #$%#ing turbo or super charger on their cars and say they are good ford should learn how to make PowerFull Engines with out the crappy turbos and charger's and the Vette will never go down it is GM'S flagship <!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Yeah they say the same to camaro, and chevele it's GM Flagship.

    I say to you the GM flagships is the same that Ford uses...it's called money.

    Sell well, very well. Sales down kicks down.
    <!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Lido, are you talking about marketing or performance? The mustang is one of the most succesfull cars of all those you mentioned in terms of marketing. Personally I don't care. Yeah, it is the most succefull pony car ever, most of the best muscle cars died in the gas crisis, not because the Mustang was better. And just for a history lesson, the muscle cars were made for the track too. Ever heard of a Superbird, it was produced for Nascar. The Transam series were muscle car terratory. Thats right, Mustangs on the track.
    Performance wise, the Camaro will still, right now, smoke the Mustang dollar per dollar. This car will be a Camaro killer no question, but how much will it cost? The GM's are hardly doomed. The Camaro is going away yes, but it is going to be back in 04'. Who knows what GM will do with it. They are doing a complete redesighn. You certanly don't know what will come out of that. Consider what happens when you supercharge a chevy 350.<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Okay ! There's a lot of tracks and a lot of cars.

    Come on ? So you think the Mustang was made to fight the Corvette ?

    Of course, not.

    Look there were races in Europe with the Fiat cincuocento (500cc).

    I'm sure you understand whem I'm saying Corvette and Mustang and not Camaro and Mustang.

    So i'm saying races for Mustang are not the same races for Corvettes.

    The car made for races using the same engine of the Mustang BOSS was the GT40.

    But the Mustang was NEVER was an reodynamic project.

    I'm sure if you read all you'll see that I'm saying and you will agree. thanks

  16. I'm a Ford fan, but I admit the ZO6 is a faster car and better handler, which is what I always look for. The Stang was never a direct competitor for the Vette anyway, its the Camaro anf F-bird, and both are gonna be history after this year anyway! The 2004 Stang can't come soon enough as this car is too "80s" for my taste, not that I don't like it mind you!! It's great that its now faster, but I would have preferred it if it was NA and not SCed.<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. I think you're right. A lot of mustangs lover would prefer the NA. I think they don't want to build a big engine so they put a supercharger.

    It's the problem with the price. Ford couldn't build a big engine to use only with the Mustang.

    They'll use the same engine in Jaguar, Aston Martin, Lincoln, CrownVictoria and so on.

    That's the only way to make the Mustang faster ans cheaper.<!-- Signature -->

    sure, they'er not making them because the market for them is gone, but they are much better cars. The only reason the mustang's still around and selling is cause it's dirt cheap, except for the overpriced cobra that is.....which is still no competition for America's only true sports car- the 'Vette.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Sorry old man a 50 year tradition will eat the #$%#ing rustang alive, good day! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  20. Just remember, that competition improves the breed. Why did the mustang keep getting better and better? To compete against the Camaros and Firebirds, adn its the same way around. The Camaro was a good thing for ford. Many people dont understand that, adn are all happy the Camaros and Firebirds are gone. After a few years with no pony car competition, i worry alittle about Ford keeping its edge with the mustang. Not saying that it wont, but you could be sure it would if the Camaro was still around.

    This Cobra is awsome. Its looks good, has a great engine, and im sure will handle very well. If they could make an all aluminum engine that had a greater displacement, and produced the same HP, while being lighter than this engine, by all means, put in the larger displacement engine. However, there is NOTHING wronge with a Supercharger being on a car. It wouldnt suffer from lag like a turbo might. It creates instantanious power, and has instantanious responce, and creates power and torque all along the rev range, just as a larger engine might. I am quite certain that this Supercharged 4.6 makes GOBS more torque and power throughout the rev range, than a highly modded NA 4.6L. The only problem i have with the engine, is that unfortunatly they had to use an iron block...because they had too much trouble with the aluminum one.

    But just remember, the Cobra R engine made less HP and Torque than this engine, and was a very highly tuned 5.4 L engine that was expensive to make. This is cheap, creates more HP and Torque, has no driving charectoristics problems(like, no lag most likely), and is most likely much more mod friendly. A simple increase in boost, and you have amazing levels of power.

    I want this Cobra so bad.
    But its no Vette, and i would gladly take a vette over this.
     
  21. You right, ZO6_P1mp ! We must be alert !

    We can't forget that the vette kicks our lovely thunder off the track.

    The poor thunder is a brainless (or motorless) 'till today.<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Amen to that, 4agze. Of course it's no vette, but the cobra has come a long way since '93. It's not meant to be a vette, just something for Ford to pride themselves with for the meanwhile. If there's a great demand for the car, who knows where Ford will go.
     
  23. hey GM guys
    Dont bight on the NA cobra as being a slow car. Its just as fast as an ss. They both do low 5's high 4's 0-60 and somewhere in the 13's 0-1/4mile. Dont get me wrong, i do love GM as well as Ford. If i had to choose between a vette Zo6 and the cobra SC, i would probably choose the Zo6 because it handles so much better. But if i had to choose between a regular C5, i would choose the cobra SC. The point of my reply is to say to not bring the NA cobra down because you dont like it. Its not as slow as you think. The car we should be hating on is the Viper. dodge SUX!
     
  24. All of you #%$s who think a mustang is better than a vette or a viper have either been smokin too much pot or dont know shit about cars.
    DAMN!!!!
    The only mustang that ever comes close to a vette is a Roush Stage 3 premium and, even then, a Z06 vette would still smoke it.
    And don't even get me started on vipers......<!-- Signature -->
