They are claiming under 40k which probably means 39,995. I don't see how they can reach this price though. It seems like too small of an increase over the 04s.
Keep in mind, they also said there would be no convertible version of the Cobra in 07. Well, 2 have already been spotted on the road, with pictures, and one was even in a article where Carol Shelby and Tang boy were posing with it. So, they were wrong on that part. They also said it would have a whipple when the hype first started. Well, no longer a whipple, it is a (H)eaton.
Has stated to a number of people who have called them about it that the actual price, true hp numbers, and other details will not be announced until January at the earliest. Dealers have no clue what is going on and won't until about 6 months after they are finally released to them as usually.
Production numbers have been claimed to be around the 7000 mark, but I believe that is just to get the hype up even more just like they did with the 03s. There will be a second run of them I am sure, but, the dealers will have their little stickers on there from day 1 ranging anywhere from 5k to 15k markup again. This will definitely be true if the rumor is true that all dealerships will receive at least 1 cobra to sell. It is said that there will not be a requirement for the dealership to be an SVT dealer anymore. I don't understand this as that will mean any dealer will be able to work on them as well. I certainly wouldn't trust just any dealer to work on a SVT mustang without the proper SVT training.
Anyhow, after all of that rambling, rumors
are flying everywhere. The real info on the car is not expected until January. However, I see it being over 40k, markups of 5k plus, more than the stated 7000 built, a convertible model, the eaton, and it will not contain the Shelby tag and I don't believe it will contain the cobra tag either...but that might not drop until the Shelby Cobra 2 seater is released.
Ok...if you are still awake, carry on.
