When Ford announced a few days ago that SVT was going to be continuing to build the next generation Cobra they made the conspicuous, telling comment to the effect that affordability was going to be a factor.

That leads me to believe that superchargers are out since they ad about $7000 to the cost of the car (plus the other bling). I bet they will put the 5.4 liter engine in the new Cobra as its hook and that it will be about that much more powerful (60 -70hp) than the 4.6 GT engine. It will probably ad about $5000, including the other bling.

Unfortunately, I think that is going to upstage the GT model pretty good. The GT will be left primarily for the automatic trans crowd.

My guess.

It will most likely be the 5.4L motor that was intended for the Lightning.

My guess is a 5.4L 3 Valve ( :( I want 4 :bawling: ) with a blower and the IRS/Live Axle option

That is what I have been hearing. 500 hp would be a nice place to start. :D
