 — Most people on here have reviewed the v8 flavor of Ford's 2003 beast. That's great - I wish I could have afforded one ;) Instead, I had to settle for a 3.8 v6 with a reconstructed title thanks to some... Read More

 — I love the 'Stang, but you'd think that over 40 years, Ford would be able to incorporate some of the finer syntheitic materials rather than the hard, gaudy plastic that we see in many of today's vehic... Read More

2003 Ford Mustang

No matter what Ford did to the Mustang in 2003, the year would be known for the re-release of the monster SVT Cobra. The 2003 Ford Mustang engines started with a base 3.8-liter OHV, rated at 193 horsepower. The GT had a 4.6-liter, 16-valve SOHC V8 rated at 260 horsepower, the Mach 1 had a 4.6-liter, 32-valve DOHC rated at 305 horsepower (can you see I'm building to something here?), and the Cobra had a 4.6-liter, 32-valve DOHC rated at 390 horsepower. Dude, 390!

Not to be outdone, Saleen had its 20th Anniversary model with a base of 375 horsepower that could be tuned to numbers nearing and exceeding the Cobra.
