2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Supercharged ConvertibleReview
Appearance:
Performance:
Quality:
Overall:

Funness — Supercharged 4.6L 32V V8 390hp (underrated) / 390lb-ft 0-60 under 5 seconds RWD 6spd Manual 3800lbs Big and heavy for a coupe. Interior gaps somewhat large but is a budget sports car so it's forgiven. Same with wind/road noise. Very capable with light modifications. Only Mustang with independant rear suspension = fair ride quality but promotes wheel hop upon heavy launch.

Pros: Supercharged V8 with monsterous low-end torque, amazing throttle response, predictable handling, calm--almost unrevealing styling

Cons: heavy = poor gas mileage

2003 Svt Cobra Convertible 500rwhp — Engine Upgrades: Full Bassani Exhausts, BBK Cold Air Induction, Diablo Predator with pulleys. Transmission: has been upgraded to 4.10 racing gears, and a high performance racing clutch along with a pro five shifter. Exterior: Official Saleen Rollbar with LED light mounted across the back seat.

Pros: Ridiculously fast car that has much more potential power for a reasonably low price, just have to swap out the supercharger for a kenne bell and will get another 200 to the wheels.

Cons: 2003 version was the only cobra to ever have been made with independent rear suspension...which means it handles better around turns, but at the same time is not a good combo with a lot of power...Anything above 500rwhp and you should consider switching to a solid rear axle which will cost you an extra 3 grand...If you are considering buying a 03 or 04 cobra, then ask yourself how much power you are looking to put into it...if it is over 500 to the wheels then don't waste your time finding an 03, get an 04 that already has a solid rear axle.

Most.fun.ever!!! — This car is absolutely nuts. 390 rated bhp, 9.0psi of supercharged boost, rear-wheel drive, six-speed manual, CONVERTIBLE TOP... I could go on and on about this car. It is insanely fast, getting to 60mph in just less than 5 sec, and gets the tires roasting even with Nitto DR's equipped! Car handles like a charm too, taking right-angle turns at up to 45mph on stock suspension. Basically, there's not too much I can complain about with this car. Best combination of American muscle and sport performance for the money!

Pros: Fast acceleration, joy to handle around corners, convertible top makes cruising more enjoyable.

Cons: Rough shifter, brakes feel a bit overwhelmed at high speeds.

Snake — The SVT Cobra Mustang is a pretty affordable muscle-car that nods in the general direction of track cars. It's supercharged V8 makes the car a beast and you can really feel the traction control try to deal with wheel-spin when you really push the car. It's bulky and a little clumsy but is till a true sports car- even if it doesn't have the look. Steering is tight and the clutch is heavy- maybe obnoxiously heavy. Bad news though, the interior sucks. My long legs have trouble finding a place anywhere in the car. With the exception of the seats, the interior is also very basic. Still the seats are pretty comfortable and the car would make a fine daily driver.

Pros: The power

Cons: interior could provide more room, exterior could provide more flash

Very Fast, Looks Great, Huge Bang For Your Buck. Poor Fit And Finish — One of the best engines out there. Very reliable, never had a problem with the car EVER. Best handling Mustang available. No interior or trunk room. My 1985 RX-7 has better fit and finish. Great seats. Chicks dig it. Almost imposible to drive in the rain.

Pros: Fast, sexy, powerful, awsome sound system, great seats

Cons: Too powerful for everyday use, deadly in the wet, poor fit and finish, getting pulled over at 2am on your way home so a cop can get a better look...

Lots Of Fun To Drive, But One Can Get Into Trouble With The Law Very Fast. — I drive this car almost daily, it has over 60,000 miles and it has been relatively reliable. Most problems occurred under warranty. For some reason, the back brakes have had to be replaced, but the fronts are fine, which seems backwards to me. Can't beat having a convertible on a sunny day!

Pros: Great acceleration and handling, removable top, lots of fun

Cons: Still getting cowl shake on bumps, even with a shock tower brace.  Exhaust system needs to be updated; it is way too quiet.

Sexy Looking Car With The Top Down — My car has many upgrades so its different from a stock 03-04 cobra, but from driving mine its got very fast acceralation, its got coil-over suspension with many other suspension mods so it also handles very well. It could use some bigger brakes on it but they do the job. THe interior on it has leather and suede bucket seats, could use a bit less plastic though.

Pros: Very fast, sexy looking, and handles like a dream.

Cons: THe interior could be a bit nicer with a bit less plastic

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.

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

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
