View Full Version : Looking for SN95 Converts to Terminators' Opinions

09-21-2007, 02:46 PM
I was just driving around in an '03 Cobra Coupe and was thinking of the things I really liked about the car over my SN95...

So I was wondering if there were any former SN95 owners that switched to a Terminator who would care to offer up their observations. Why did you make the switch, what were the pros, any cons, and perhaps there are some folks who still own both?

Typical Gary - Always looking for that "free" advice. ;) I own one of each and they are definitely two different cars. I love the low end torque of the 5.0 (I know your '97 is not of that style motor and you are SC'd). I also love it when the boost kicks in on the '03. I do feel the extra weight on the '03 as compared to the '95. But as our leader Tony says "why have one Cobra, when you can have two or three and enjoy them all." :D

Ha! Yeah, I know...and sometimes I seem to get what I paid for, huh?

Still looking for more opinions...

Each Generation seems to be of a different personality of car and the weight, response, comfort in each is all different. Depends on what you like most and the Generation of car that suits you best.

I like the 03-04 handling much better and the ride is a bit smoother, and the power difference is awsome. I spent alot of money trying to get the same handling that the 03-04 has.
I do believe the seats are alot more comfortable and you do not slide in the seats when cornering hard.
I did learn alot about Cobras with the 97 and I really enjoyed every moment of ownership. I do know the cop that has it now is enjoying it and still has the illegal exhaust on it.

Yeah, I really love the handling and the comfort and the sound and the look and the brake cooling and the stereo and the cup holders and the traction control and the...
