Cobra — Fell in love with this car the moment I saw it. It is a beautiful, fun car that always attracts attentions and compliments. You wont be disappointed if you pick one of these up. The convertible is great on a nice day.

Modern Muscle Car. Great Power, Handling And Style. — Car has great styling, and performance from the factory, this one has about every performance part you can get for it. Great gas mileage for the amount of power, comfortable front seats, fun to drive with the top down. Grabs everybodys attention with its look and exhaust note.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Super Snake — My favorite car that I've owned yet. Unbelievable power...not quite a great people carrier and not gonna go anywhere in the snow, but for the money you spend you cannot find a better car. 96-98 Cobras can be had from 8k on up to 12- 20k depending on what's done, procharger kit for another 5k and for about 15k once it's all said and done you have something that will destroy modern vettes.

1998 Svt Cobra — Very fast car stock. brakings great. all around good sports car. always room for more power with this engine. The car takes quite a bit of punishment from me and still drive like new. It only takes high test gas. It wont run well on regular.

Pros

I like the fact that this car handles very good. It goes where I put it!

Cons

The only thing that I dont like about this car is that the bottom of the car was never really painted underneath.

Nice Ride For The Money! — I have owned this car for almost 10yrs. I beat the snot out of it every time I get a chance. The car has never failed me other than having to change the clutch out. I am only pushing about 375hp with the mods it has. This car is lowered and it handles sweet.

I Love The Color, And As I Said, It Looks, Runs, And Handles Like Its A Brand New Svt Cobra — My 98 Cobra looks, runs, and handles like I just drove it out of the dealership in 1998, with that, it has no squeaks and rattles for it's age. It's been garage kept since day 1 and has 67,000 miles on it. I am the second owner and payed $7,800 for this Cobra. It is my 14th Mustang and it is my favorite one out of all 14, included in those 14 was a 40th anniversary Mach 1, and a 96 Black cobra, and many foxbody 5.0's, some GT's some LX's. I also owned a restored 1966 coupe.

Gas Mileage.

My Review — Pretty neat story how I got the car. I bought it from my old High School English teacher. I found it on Craigslist and didn't even know it was him till I went to pick it up. Bought it bone stock. Ended up spinning a rod bearing at 94k miles so I swapped the engine for an 03 supercharged motor. Right now it sits at 463hp/455 lb ft tq. It was a fun project. Gas mileage sucks but when you drive it you don't care. Great, good looking car with a little surprise under the hood.

Awesome! — Its an awesome looking and sounding car. The only thing not great is the shifter and its position but it is not hard to get used to. It is extremely fun to drive this car but not in rainy weather.

Perfect — performance of this car is ridiculous all around as many of my friends can vouch for but its not only the power it comes with its the potential it holds. Exterior styling is awsome in my opinion and the interior is really to relax and just enjoy the ride.
