Whatever you get I would make sure you get it for the right reasons and not just to try and impress other kids at your school or to brag about HP numbers. I remember when I graduated high school the school news paper did a story on the 'top 10 nicest cars in the parking lot' and my 2000 WS6 Trans Am was voted number 2 (which I worked my *** off for). Would have been number 1 but some spoiled girl got her daddy to buy her a brand new C6. Moral of the story can't control what everyone else has so its important just to learn to be happy with what you. Even if you have the fastest car in your school there will be faster cars in your area. 98-01 cobras are slow by todays standards and have the same power that the V6's have now a days.
And to answer your question more then likely you will be on your parents policy who more then likely have several discounts such as multi line and multi car that shouldn't make the insurance to bad. Although I'd be careful, speeding tickets aren't expensive to pay the fine, but the insurance increase is a PITA.
Another rule of thumb is generally an older car will be less expensive even though the power is the same. When I was pricing insurance on my last car a 2003 Nissan 350Z was $60 less a month then a 2006 even though its the exact same car.
