The car is called a Mustang. That's the name Ford gave our cars. A mustang is a breed of a horse. If you want to have a car called the Ford Cobra then great create one separate from the mustang. But a Mustang is a horse. GM had a car called the Firebird by Pontiac. What emblems did the car come with from the factory. A big huge Bird on the hood. A bird on its side door pillar. Pontiac didnt make a Firebird model chicken. Pontiac didnt make a Firebird model Lizard. It was a freaking bird. Fire around a bird. Do you see the Dodge Viper (snake) have pony emblems on it? Its not Dodge Viper, pony model.

The Gt500 is not a Cobra so why stick cobra emblems on it. The Gt500 is no more a Cobra than its a Spider or golden retriever model. Its silly.

Well I do agree a Cobra is much more aggressive than a horse however Ford should of then created a completely separate car and called it the Ford Cobra.

Isn't Fords turn-key competition car called a Cobra? (And isn't it Mustang inspired?)

I have no idea on that one my good sir. Inspired by mustang is cool but you can't start putting other animal and reptiles on a specific animal car. Lol. If its a mustang, then its a horse. If they make a ford bear then its a bear not a cheetah model.

In my opinion the reason they moved to the cobra was to separate them from other mustangs the same reason you have the boss 302 the Mach 1 etc these are specialty versions. No where (that I know of) is there a horse on my gt500 why because the cobra ate the horse now they are one...lol is it a mustang sure but its so much more than a mustang...oh and to the guy that said he would never own a gt500 he is absolutely insane or he is jealous lol lastly if your mad that they put a cobra snake on a gt500 or on a mustang period.......get over it nobody asked you!!!!

Well, I know Cobras body can stretch but to eat an entire horse is just flat out rude of the snake. Lol. Boss, Mach 1, Roush, Saleen, Shelby models are all cool because they have nothing to do with an animal. Dodge Viper doesn't make a gorilla model. The little cobra emblems really have no business being on the car especially on a Gt500 when it has nothing to do with it. It's a Shelby Gt500. Roush and Saleen don't stick cobra emblems on there models. Does Dodge place a sheep or ant emblem on there Ram trucks? No there is a ram emblem. Do jaguar cars have cheetah and tiger emblems on the hood, I think not. They put a jaguar emblem. Wow , how about that. Dodge super bee, did dodge place a rabbit or wasp emblem on there. Other than the mustang name me one other car named after a animal that is called by a different animal name for that model .

Chevy Corvette stingray model, hey let's stick some whale and shark emblems on the stingray model. Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

Ever thought about since Shelby makes the Shelby Cobra. Ford paid him to help customize and build the GT350 and GT500. Since he put his name on it I think it makes sense that he throws his famous cobra badge on it. Btw. I rather have a cobra badge on my shelby then mustang on the side and front. No disrespect to the mustang emblem.

I agree with this post 100%!!!
I always thought this was the reason for the Cobra on the GT500

Honestly it's not that big of a deal, not sure why this guy is even ranting so much. I mean who cares. It obviously works, ford keeps selling the car for 60k a piece.

Not surprisingly, you skipped over the correction. A Mustang is a horse. THE Mustang was NOT named after a horse. Period. The Cobra was a name stake from SHelby, it stuck, it sold and NOW DOES look like a Cobra. Additionally, the GT500 doesn't say Mustang on it.

Lastly, the other cars you mentioned are just that, other cars. God forbid someone strays from common practice.

True... Except the P51 Mustang was not a jet, but rather a prop driven plane, arguably the best fighter of WWII

My 2013 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Shelby GT500 is more SVT Cobra than Shelby because it is:
Concept / performance goals= Shelby
Design= Ford / SVT
Engineering= SVT
Build= Ford / SVT
Transport, marketing & sold by Ford.
Badged & marketed using the Shelby name to increase sales.

The funniest thing about our car is, even though it is a Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Shelby GT500, we still just call it our Mustang. Well, actually, we call it our white Mustang so people know we're not talking about our other Mustang: black 88GT.

Personally, it doesn't matter to me what others call it. I know that the Terminator owners don't like this car to also be called a cobra because its performance is greater than the termis. But that's just the evolution of the brand. It keeps getting better.

Did the owners of original Shelbys get all out of sorts when Ford started making Cobras & Cobra R & Termis? Doubtful.

So call it what you want. Arguing is pointless. The car has multiple Cobras on it inside & out.

You'd think that you'd show the SVT guys who did all this work a little respect though & allow them to put their Cobra on the car that turned 200mph & shocked the world!

Did Mr.Shelby pick on you and steal your lunch money in school? Marketing scheme or not, that's who Carrol Shelby was, read his bio more of a hustler then a car guy

Lol a 5.0 GT plus the difference between the two spent on suspension and FI could rape the Shelby without trying.

I would like a Shelby, don't get me wrong, but I would feel the need to leave it stock...

Because the shelby cars keep value too? You can buy 2007-2009 Shelby's for the same price as a current 2014 GT.

You are gonna loose your money any which way you look at it.

Look at the loss in value compared to a gt. Even a 10 year old terminator can easily bring over 20g.

I think this sums everything up...

2013 Shelby 1000.
1,200 HP!

2013 Shelby 1000 cranks up the horsepower dial to 1,200
