    2003 Svt Cobra —

    First off this cobra handles better than any mustang I have ever driven (wich is not saying a whole lot lol) none the less it is impressive. The clutch in this car is so easy to modulate, the pick up is vary low in the pedal travel so quick getaways are a breez with none of that high rev clutch slipping action many of us are used to with high pick up clutches. Acceleration in this car literally hurts my neck! At least in first gear that is. The ratios are vary well spaced ad alow the car to keep the revs high and the power contuius. Traction is a bit of a problem form a stand still but I tally that mostly to the tiers that came with the car(not stock eagel f1’s) 1st gear is full of wheel spin, even at a 30mph roll! Not spinning the tiers is tricky do to the Eaton m12 blower that sits on top of the cobras 4.6L 32 valve V8, due to the superchargers ability to make instantaneous boost at any given rpm a deft touch is needed to keep the tiers hooked up. The gear box is a t59 trmec witch is none for its rock solid reliability and built proof construction (able to with stand 500 ft/lbs of tq to the wheels) that being said it is rather noisy in that it whines much like a race car with strait cut ears but obviously not that loud but you get the idea, but that s a minor auditory quabil when compared to the deep angry and mind you attention getting sound from the duo of DOHC V8 roar and the siren scream from the roots blower. The interior is sub par for a vehicle of this price range even in 2003 when this car was worth $35k 1/8 inch panel gaps are abound in the cabin and the window stopped working on me tell a friend suggested I slam the door while holding the window button…it worked! I was booth relived and disappointed, relived that my window now workd and disappointed that ford had such low standers for an otherwise amazing car. The car is not just a street brawler either, just pop it in to 6th gear and at 60mph the car hums along at 1800rpm and thatks to that IRS out back highway impact joints are no longer an event wear I had to brace myself for (un like my 91 fox wich is like a lasagna noodle).

    Pros: 400hp and the abilty to go to 900hp on stock block

    Cons: iterior build quality,

    Terminator — Great acceleration, two piston brembos in front, single piston in rear provide above average braking but not enough for 530 hp. Chassis twists in turns, steering is numb, loses traction easily, the engine is bullet proof but overall SN95s are not known to be reliable, my pass window sometimes squeak, and my hood latch was messed up - and I haven't hit 20k miles, car looks sharp, not extremely distinctive or special compared to the S197s but its classy and looks angry. I love the understated look, wouldn't change the exterior at all, interior is mixed, bad plastics on dash but great leather and suede seats. I get 12.4 MPG mixed driving, nothing extreme. This car is for true american muscle car lovers, for $2k you can go from 390 break HP to 530, and 580 Ftlbs! Which makes it faster and cheaper than a GT500

    Pros: acceleration, the sound, easily modded, respected, beautiful

    Cons: could use better brakes, stiffer chassis

    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!

    Pros: Power

    Cons: Not many

    480hp Cobra — the motor is preaty much stock other than the upper and lower supercharger pully, this puts out 17psi of boost. tuned using a SCT tuner by Dyno Speed Racing to produce 480hp and 520tq. the fun factor is the best part of the car. if you are affraid to go fast then this is not the car for you. i have had it up to 150mph and it was still pulling strong, the tires dont even thing about hooking till 3rd gear. the car cost about 25,000 then another 8,000 in bolt on up grades.

    Pros: smooth ride, will run with 90% of the street cars out there

    Cons: 20mpg highway, 17mpg around town, 10mpg foot on the floor

    Not For The Faint Of Heart. — 0 - 126 11.8 secs. 568hp at the flywheel , 516 at the wheels Big 3" Bassani exhaust system Lost of fun very fast

    Pros: Lost of fun at the track! No problem getting into rush hour traffic.

    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
