i would take a supra over a cobra any day of the week. they are just 100x more rare and still hold value a **** ton better than cobras. Heck, you can find an automatic TT 1994 supra with 130k miles on it still sell for around $30,000. Retail new in 94 was around $45k. That's badass holding power.

Plus the mod potential and the shear power that it can have. yummy. I almost bought one instead of the evo, but I wanted to buy something new that had a warrenty instead of something with 100k miles on it (although they are good to over 200k miles)

all a cobra is, is an upgraded v6 mustang. the supra is a supra no matter what. Plus you see mustangs and cobras all the time.

Maybe it's just where I live, but I see A LOT more Supra's on the road than Cobra's. You are right there are way more v6 and GT stangs than Supra's but thats a different story and not a fair compairison. Say a Cobra is just a upgraded v6 stang is like saying a Evo is just a upgraded Lancer. They share some styling cue's, but are vastly different cars frmo handling to striaghtline performance.

I found a supra on autotrader for like 13,000 with only 9,000 miles on it! Its not a TT though! Woud a automatic supra still be nice and fast to drve?? I relly dont know cuz for that car to be so fast and to have an automatic trans sucks!!!

so the basic chassis isnt the same? BS, the interior is the same, ALL mustangs utilize the same pieces. the V6 platform is used for the GTs as well as the cobras. heck, the suspension on the GT and v6 are almost identical. just have different engines. Like i stated, the cobra uses the same chassis, but a handbuilt engine and new drivetrain/suspension. However the interior is the same and the same trunk and the same doors, etc. see what i'm saying?

yes the evo is based on a lancer platform. it takes it's cues from that. I have never said it doesnt. after all, it is a Mitsu LANCER evolution

The N/A ones dont hold value and you can't make huge power with those cars. it's a different engine. look for the TT ones

I would say.. if I had to pick one right now I'd get the Supra. It's simply more valuable :-/ Like started above, they go for a LOT even with over a hundred thousand miles on them and automatic.

Then I'd sell the Supra and get a brand new Cobra like.. a 2007 model and the license plate would say 007

I have a vid of a TT 95 GT vs a Supra and a modded 03 snake vs a supra on the highway. Supra owns both mustangs hardcore once it gets over lag (bout 2 seconds). Then a modded RX-7 blows all 3 of em away. THese were all done from topend runs on the highway. Ur not gonna find too many modded supras lossing on the street. There just too much to handle in there territory.

I'm sure it's happened before because there are some pretty badass 5.0 Cobras out there.

They had MAJOR problems tho. Mr Wankel gave the car to the public and most ppl who bought it didnt know how to maintain it. U gotta treat that car differently then most. U get the right setup on one tho and itll run 1000hp for 200k miles.

Don't count on it. My keyboarding teacher was stationed Germany awhile back and he worked on them and knew alot about them. Me and some of the car guys asked him about them. What he told us was that they don't breathe until they reach 10,000 RPMs and when they do get there, they don't breathe well. One of the reasons why they didn't catch on. I'm not sure if they fixed that in the new RX-8 or not.

239hp/219tq in a 2900lb car breathes well enough for me.
