Z06 or GT500?

If someone came up to you and asked, "Would you rather have a new Z06 or a new GT500?" Which would you rather have? Get the Z06, sell it, and dump the money into the GT500 is not an option. Pretend it has to be your daily driver for a year (though very few of either of these will probably end up as daily drivers...). I'd take the Z06, but I'm sure at least a few of you would choose differently.

This thread over on [H]ardOCP's forums got me thinking about this one.

Re: Z06 or GT500?

I'd take the GT500 if it had to be a daily driver. the back seat would be much more useful. Both cars have plenty of power but the cobra is easier to upgrade. (and you could buy a few more vehicles with the extra money, lol)

I'd have to say GT500...just because I believe they'll be rarer.

Re: Z06 or GT500?

id say if you had the money, go for the ZO6.

isnt the GT500 the replacement for the cobra, since ford said it would drop the cobra name cause its not "nostalgic" enough for the retro stangs?

Re: Z06 or GT500?

I'll have to join the GT500 band wagon. I don't like the current styling of either car but I dislike the GT500 less so it is my choice.

On a side note, the modablity of the GT500 is not going to be like the 03/04 cobras from all the reports I am reading. From what is being reported, the supercharger will face the rear of the engine bay and the pulley clearances will not allow any really change in pulley sizes without body modifications. I guess they are trying to make is harder to mod in order to cut down the warranty work they have to do.

Re: Z06 or GT500?

I don't think the pulley clearances are going to be made tight just to keep people from modding the car. You've got to remember how absolutely huge a 4V 5.4L mod motor is. Surprised they can pack it all in there to begin with.

And I've heard that the motor is going to be very restricted from the factory to keep power levels down (for the usual insurance purposes). Can't remember where I read it cause it's been a while, but they said a big part of the restriction is going to be the air intake system (not the intake itself). They claimed that a simple CAI will probably pick up at least 20 rwhp...

I think these things are gonna make stock and slightly modded Terminators look like boats.

but dollar for dollar, if you take the money that you save by buying the GT500 and put it into mods, the Cobra will take out a Z06.

Re: Z06 or GT500?

I'd go for the GT500. Who cares about performance compared to the Z06 and crap like that, the GT500 is going to be like the Cobra R. Limited Edition, badass, and everyone would want one.

Re: Z06 or GT500?

Look at it this way if it was going to be your DD the gt500 would be better. I'm sure the ride is better. The interior would be much better suited for a DD and just imagine all the speed bumps/ramps and imagine having to hit potholes and what not. IMO the GT500 would be better plus I just love them. However if I could afford it i'd have both
