All I know is, I have heard rumors of a 500hp cobra. Who knows if it is true or not. Hopefully we will find out something certain in the near future.

From what I have heard, they put a stop to the Lightning development to concentrate on getting the Cobra out.

:dunno: hopefully that is a sign that they are really putting effort into it...

I heard the 450 h.p. range. Hopefully it will be lightened up some, since there are rumors of the 05 GT's weighing in at 4000 LBS :eek:

I was waiting for a flight back from phoenix and i was sitting behind a japanese guy and a young fomoco engineer and they were talking about how the warm weather testing was going on the new 180 mph hybrid supra. my ears got real big when the guy from ford said the svt guys are really interested in what they were doing.

I wonder if the 06 Cobra will be a Shelby-ford product. I know Shelby is working with ford on something.:bounce:

Quit talking about the 06 Cobra, there isn't going to be one. The next one is an 07 model, coming out in 2nd half of 06.

The rumor is that Shelby will offer a new GT350 and GT500 based on the 05. The Mustang Cobra will not have anything to do will Shelby, that, is SVT's baby

There is no way a GT will weigh more then a Cobra at 3665 lbs. The GT has an Aluminum block vs. cast iron, solid rear axle vs. IRS (about 100 lighter), SOHC vs. DOHC and no supercharger and intercooler. I read that the 05 GT's weigh in at about 3450 lbs.

The 07 Cobra may out accelerate the Vette but I doubt it will out handle a Vette. The Vettes will be much lighter :baby:

pick up the november issue of motor trend they have a reveiw of the 05 mustang gt.it weighs 3520 lb so the cobra shouldnt be to heavy.0-60 in 5.1 seconds the cobra coming out next fall should really be fast and from the handleing reveiws of the 05 gt it should handle really well.:cool:

the new cobra will probably kill a vette in acceleration.:jason:

Well, since everything is just rumor, I figured I add my .02. From what I've heard the next Snake will be another SC 4.6, but utilizing the Lysholm 2300ax blower (same as Ford GT), and putting down 500hp.


I've also heard it will be a 5.4L Lysholm combo, but I can't see them using that, because it is what the GT has.

the new cobra will probably kill a vette in acceleration.:jason:A few weeks back I went to the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. Chevy, as many of you know, not only compete in ALMS with the C5R vette, but also are sponsors to the series. Well, they had a spread there and my buds & I checked out their new C6 (z-51 equipped LS-2) on display. In the dash was a dynojet graph that read 362rwhp/360rwtq. Wanting to know what all they were planning for the z06 - the only thing they'd said was that the C-6 z06 would also be in the 500hp arena also & with a pricetag north of $60k. Keep your friends close & your enemies closer. These ARE the good old days...:thumbsup:

Mirage~ ...and easier, less expensive to mod :spimpin:

Yet another round of driver skills determining the outcome of a stock z06 vs. stock Cobra race. I'd also bet the $ for the Cobra heads north a little bit, too. I'd be surprised, er, thankful if it didn't.

yea the ZO6 would be alot harder to mod cuz of all the computers controling the car.and there probably more complicated.
