The Best Bang For The Buck, Ever. — What can I say, this is the easiest, fastest car I have ever owned. In stock form, its quicker than 90% of cars out there. Once you modify it, theres very few things on wheels that are faster. Maybe not the best for a family, but car seats do fit back there!

Awesome! — This car is incredible, handles great, top notch performance, fast, quick, stylish and great on fuel economy. This is the second one I have owned and I am completely satisfied with it. Limited production and one of the last true Cobra's ever built....

Pros

car was setup for scca racing when I bought it so the ride setup was harsh for street use.

Cons

rear seats were removed by previous owner

Wicked !!!! — I love the car, the engine puts out around 550HP so traction can be tricky at times. Still working on removing some of the race suspension parts. I plan on reinstalling the rear seats at sometime. Overall the car is a blast to drive and I get a lot of looks.

Ford's Svt Cobra Is One Of The Best Cars I Have Ever Owned! — Ford's SVT Cobra is one of the best cars I have ever owned! The car looks great, moves well, and is very easy to add more HP! I have the convertible, and with a couple chassis stiffening pieces, it is suprisingly solid. If you get the chance to buy an SVT product, do it!

Cheap All-American V8 power!

Mileage, but it is a sacrifice that I am willing to make.

Best Mustang Ever — Every time that I drive it, it is impossible to not smile when I step on the gas. Every single drive is fun and I cherish every moment that I have to drive the car. The supercharger whine never gets old!

A Screamer — I don't like the rims. But I love the screaming blower. It's made of star stuff from the cosmos. It's featured in Fish Tumor! Films. It's feels powerful under throttle and yet you can drive it normally. I would like a white cobra but black was my limited choice. Black paint is hard to take care of so maybe a white paint job would be good.

Pros

I owned a 03 GT before this car, but do to a deer it was easier to replace than fix.  So I looked at new GT's and decided what I wanted in a car was in the 03 Cobra.  For the price I gave for the car, I still have the power and performance to keep up with most new cars.  I am glad that I went with an older Cobra rather than a newer GT.

Cons

Really nothing jumps out to say don't buy a car like this, but if I complained about one thing, the bolsters of the front seats.  The drivers side is adjustable but passenger seat is not.  My wife says she feels that she is always sitting on one cheek rather than planted in the seat normally. They are a little uncomfortable.

Streaker — When I was looking for a performance car I was looking at 07 GT500's and just could not afford that price. If you want a still reliable car with performance like an older GT 500, you would be just as satisfied with an 03-04 Cobra. I bought my car with 100,000 miles on it, paid less than 20K less for it and have independent rear suspension. Buy parts for it from Ford Dealers are even cheaper now on cost. I drove it over 8 hours from dealer to home and at 75 mph most of the way with cruise on, I got 29.4 mph with it. I average around 25 mph when I don't play alot. Easy to upgrade for more power if you want for less cost. Just dynoed my car the other day, and with only a BBK Cold Air Induction Kit and Bassani Exhaust, I still made 370 hp at the wheels. Factory Flywheel is 390 hp. That is even amazing for a car that is 9 years old and has over 100k miles on it.

The Power.....

Cons

IRS the weakest link!!

03 Svt — I think the 03/04 cobras are built very well, the quaility of them is very well, nothing makes noise, and the performance of handling braking and power is amazing.....not to many cars that will hold 1,000 p on a stock bottom end. for the power they/ i make the gas milage is ok, and driving it is great. making people stare is the best part....

Amazing 03 Svt — Car handles amazing. Plenty of power especially around 3500 rpm. Amazing quality have had no problems with the car at all. Rides amazing. Clutch is a little tight. Best overall fun factor out of any car i have had. the sound of the supercharger even factory is amazing.
