I love my new edge. But I recently test drove a new 5.0 and,I must say, they are pretty nice. A lot roomier interior. And it would be nice to have a bit of a warranty. Then the Termi. To me they just have a coolness factor, aside from the performance. Badass comes to mind when I see one. Tough question. One Ive been pondering for a while. Too bad the Boss is so expensive. Id have a hard time resisting if I could find the right deal...

Well the Termi is pushing 10 years old at this point, gotta factor that in. As much as I hate to say it I'd go with the new 5.0 GT. Power is similar, the Cobra isn't exactly light, the interior on the new cars is a bazillion times better, the car itself is smoother/more refined, will still have a warranty most likely etc...

Only thing the Cobra has going for it really is the IRS and the cool factor of having "the Terminator". Also that M112 whine is probably the greatest sound there is...

Coming from a termimator owner...

If you want something comfortable to dd get the gt.
If you want something fun that will snap you back to reality in a split second buy the cobra.
The cobra will have more maintenance issues in the next few years but is worth it if you have the knowledge and patience.

Cobra if its been well kept and garaged, babied basically. If that's not the case get the 13' 5.0 I test drove it and trust its pretty badass plenty of power & plenty room!
