The truck is called an F6 Tornado it has the same 6 speed at the '03-'04 Cobra has. Take a look at the cars that FPV is doing. Then email Ford about. What happen to the Lightning and the SVTFocus could happen to the Cobra.

If Ford carried that product lineup here instead these ever growing vehicles with underpowered engines that we are stuck with I do not think they would have any problems selling vehicles.

Hey, the GT Boss has a 5.4L engine. 290 killowatts does not sound like much when in metric terms. They can get away with the larger motors since they do not get the same Gas Guzzler tax we have to deal with. Besides that, I don't think I would want to own a vehcile that looks like the GM GTO either. From what I can recall, the Boss is their version of a 4 door mustang. As for the tornado, they can keep it. It looks too much like a chevey luv truck on steroids.
