isn't a corvette a lot lighter than a cobra though? And you're also comparing a 2002 against a 2007, already the new zo6 has 500hp i think and i believe the new one is supposed to weigh 2900lbs, that's nothing! I hate to say it on this board but i don't think a cobra will ever be zo6 territory. (comparing same year same mods)

that thing is sick! i graduate college in 2009 and if i get a full ride for all 4 years my dad is gonna buy me a car ($25k or less) so i bet i could pick up a 07 w/ a bunch of
mods for around that price. even though i am $9k short of a full ride as of now.....

and to red herring: i bet if you had $50k to buy and mod a brand new cobra and $50k to buy and mod a brand new z06 the cobra would be faster in the 1320

if that's the case why didn't you get a busted *** civic and do an engine swap for less than the cars you have now with mods? It'd be faster. i don't know aboutu a 64 but 232 stang could have a faster car for the money, so why do you have a mustang? You think people who can afford corvettes care? And really i'd have the corvette over the cobra for looks, style, handling, and just cause i like corvettes better. Probably anyone in here could have had a faster car but we all have our cars instead, why do you think that is?

Right answer, I like cobras, but I like corvette zo6's better, and the two don't compare. But that's off topic...we'll stay with the 2007 cobra here

Aren't the real drag cars manual? I thought I saw something on them on speed channel and the guy had a transmission(s) that was built such that he had to pull a different lever each time he wanted to shift a gear.

I think that is great. produce more Cobras and the demand goes down and so does the "Jack the customers" price they have always put on the Cobra.

You know the Z-28 and the SS were not limited production. They are everywhere killing Cobras everywhere and they are not even made anymore. I dont think the Cobra needs to be limited. Thats what they got the Ford GT for

You have a good point corey but I just like owning a car that is somewhat hard to come by, but is still a car that more than a few people can afford, unlike the GT which is like millionaire status.
