Re: 2012 Gt500 vs 03-04 Cobra

Also, by the numbers the 2012 GT500 runs a 12.4 to a 2003 Cobra 12.6...it's all in the driver. Also an identical 0-60 of 4.4 seconds...extra 160 horsepower sure is getting you alot.

Re: 2012 Gt500 vs 03-04 Cobra

I'll put it this way, my car with catback, intake, stock pulley, stock tune made 404/386.

Less than 1500 and it made 490/490 on a hot day...

I've seen a bolt-on '11 GT run a 11.7...not an easy task, but definitely not for a stock Terminator.

And please please PLEASE stop calling it a "termi" "termy" etc.

It's either a Terminator, SVT Cobra, or Cobra.

Terminator was the code word in pre-production models, just as every car has a code name.

For a good read find a copy of Iron Fist, Lead Foot and you'll know the whole history of these cars.

Same thing with the z28. I sat there and tried to figure out why it was called a z28. Turns out that was the product code for that camaro and it just stuck

It's also a pain to type terminator everytime. And to defer from the other cobras you have to put 03-04 cobra so it's just an abbreviation that you'll have to get used to lol

Why don't we take a poll of the Terminator owners on this site and see what WE say.

Do you call a Mustang a Musty? Or a Porsche a Porsy? Camaro a Camay?

Camaros are called maros all the time. Lamborghini are called lambos and nobody pronounces any of their cars right on top of that.

Well if that's the case, run slicks on both and you'll see a larger difference in those times!.. All the more reason why I'll take a Shelby over a Terminator!..

I don't think the cobra looks much different then a gt therefor I don't see what all the talk it about. Even someone with a decent knowledge of cars wouldn't tell the difference between it and an older cobra

Re: 2012 Gt500 vs 03-04 Cobra

were not discussing the 99-01s though. And there are quite a few differences between the 03-04s.. too many to name.

the basics
hood
front bumper
side skirts
rear bumper
rear exhaust
rear spoiler
and wheels

From the rear they look so similar that even a person with a decent knowledge of cars wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Re: 2012 Gt500 vs 03-04 Cobra

i guess im lost... how do these three even to a normal eye... say consistancy?





v6 = no exhaust cut outs

GT = dual exhaust cutouts

Cobras = Tons of variances

even my 16 year old sister points them out to me and she didnt know how to turn on the wipers in her cobalt lol

Re: 2012 Gt500 vs 03-04 Cobra

thats a whole different debate... can you tell me the differences between a honda accord, dx, lx, ex, or ex-l when its driving?

there are a ton of cars that people cant depict models from, but I beg to differ that to even the basic Joe and Jane Car person... they can tell the differences between the three.

---------- Post added at 04:15 AM ---------- Previous post was at 04:13 AM ----------

the 99-01 isnt worth throwing up because people see the tail lights... its a HUGE difference even to the untrained eyes. Seeing that the whole bottom half of the tail light is now amber, vs all red.




---------- Post added at 04:16 AM ---------- Previous post was at 04:15 AM ----------

that and cobras saying Cobra doesnt help keep them mixed in the group lol

And that's my point. It looks different to us but to a normal person it's just a plain mustang. To even someone who know muscle cars it's still a mustang. Unless they really know mustangs they won't be able to defer from either of them. That's my whole point. I'm not saying it looks dumb or I hate it cause I think that's the only good part of the different body of the terminator.

---------- Post added at 09:23 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:16 AM ----------

99-01 cobras say cobra just like the 03-04 bud. Just like all other cobras. Also what are you gonna do when someone puts a cobra rear bumper on a v6. Wow man that's gonna throw even you in a loop cause its super easy to mimic exhaust tips.

Ok...v6 without the spoiler option is what I meant. That's the first thing the eye catches. From a slight angle u start to notice that the cobra does actually have a spoiler. Abviously anyone would notice the huge lettering on the bumper and anyone who knows anything at all about mustang would train their eye to the tail pipe.

If i go back about 2 years ago before i really knew mustangs. I probly could have told a Gt from a V6, it wasnt until i got a V6 that i learned i only had one exhaust pipe and the Gt had 2.

I lived what your saying first hand, when i saw a mustang gt, cobra, saleen, gt500 ect. I just saw a "mustang" lol
Now its like "OMG A F***ING GT500!!!!" haha
