The Mustang Cobra (SVT Cobra) is from 93-04. Then in 07 Ford decided to use the GT500 name... but SVT did all the work. There is no Cobra and GT500 in the same year, all GT500s are considered cobras~ if that makes since.

That's why the ridiculous ones are referred to as Super Snakes.

I Agree, and not a fan of the Super Snake Hood either. GT500 or 03-04 Terminator is the way to go.

Yeah, ~100k for a super snake. You add 80k to a stock terminator for 20k and you'll be making 1000+hp and some damn nice suspension to handle it...

Really?!? Good to know b/c I want a Cobra next. No wonder I couldn't find a Cobra for 07. I want a Cobra, not a GT500 or a Super Snake (that only the rich can afford).

An offbeat question, but just like the other models, do they also put out the Cobra's A.K.A. "GT500's" out every year as well? Example, there is a new GT model for every year.
