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.

Pros: everything but gas milage

Cons: gas

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.

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

Pros: if you want a car thats looks and sound will turn heads this is the car for you

Cons: if your afraid of going fast

I Like It — I need to chase down rattles and various other car things, otherwise it's great. It's got 120,000 miles on it and still running strong, there are very few things that I need to change on it but I'm picky about my car, so they get changed. Has a Maximum Motorsports suspension pack; that's why it rides rough.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cobra

Cons: Rough

Blown Cobra — this is my 98 cobra. it boasts a built bottom end, vortech blower, and all the usuals. its currently not running as i sent the heads away to get raceported. my soon to be wife is getting me a bigger blower and then intercooling it. it made 450 rwhp with a basic tune and runnin really rich. better tune soon to come

Pros: pretty fast

Cons: expensive maintenance

Great All Around Car — lets see i have always loved the way cars like mine look. the cars are very powerful to be non supercharged. they are easy to maintain if they are kept up. the car is a blast to drive because its definately a head turner. i have dreamed to own one and now i do.

Pros: car built very well

Cons: nothing really negative about it

For Mustang Lovers — The Cobra is powered by a 305 horsepower version of the 4.6-liter V-8with 32 valves and other goodies. By the time you reach second gear, you're already exceeding the speed limit in most sane communities. Third gear is an excellent one for cruising around. The revs aren't that high and you can travel at the speed limit and still have enough in reserve for great acceleration. Fourth and fifth are almost afterthoughts. Sure, I did get to fifth during my morning commute (traffic gets up to 70 mph sometimes, even though it is often close), but the engine is idling at under 2,000 rpm at that speed. Fifth is a great gear for tooling along on an Interstate or major highway where you know you aren't going to need the great acceleration power of the engine too much.

Pros: The Cobra's engine has a nice growl to it. You know there's something important under the hood the instant you turn on the ignition. The engine comes to life and wakes the car (and a few of the neighbors) up. Shift into first with the short throw gear shifter and the Cobra literally takes off. I'm sure I could lift the front tires off the road while the rears are chirping away.

Cons: Fourth and fifth are almost afterthoughts. Sure, I did get to fifth during my morning commute (traffic gets up to 70 mph sometimes, even though it is often close), but the engine is idling at under 2,000 rpm at that speed.

Biggest Mistake Of My Life Next To My First Marriage. — Pick the one you like, add up all the accessories you want to put on it, then spend it on a real car.

Pros: The wheels never fell off.

Cons: The car was a money pit.

Loud, Red, And Fast. — I've owned my 98 since 2002 and have put roughly 50K on the car with no major problems. Just tires, brake pads and gasoline.

Pros: Great road manners, handling, performance. Wonderful sound of the 32-valve symphony under the hood.

Cons: 3.27 rear end gears suck with the 4.6's power band. 4.30's are just around the corner to wake this pig up. Also the T-45 transmission is as weak as hell.

Bottom Line Is $15,000 — This 1998 Mustang SVT Cobra Conv has it all. Great performance excellent acceleration, superior braking, firm handling without sacrificing a nice ride. Drop the top, the fresh air and the sweet sound of the Magna Flow exhaust is outstanding. The interior and exterior is superior. This is five star performance and appearance at the right price for what you get.

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

Pros: Remember you get what you pay for and this is an outstanding buy. Well taken care and not abused.

Cons: This is a car that is drop dead fantastic.
