I dont know the times on the 05 but if they are close to the cobra's it would be because of the hook not the power. As far as 90mph, i would say the cobra is faster because once you hook it up, it pulls like there is no tomorrow and don't run out of power. I test drove a 05 GT and it ran good but it is not a cobra. just my 2 cents

The 04 Cobra is 1-1.5 second FASTER than the 05Gt in the quarter mile.

Reading magazine tests, the GT ran anywhere from 13.8 to 14.3 in the quarter mile. The stock 04 Cobra runs anywhere from 12.4 to 12.9. You decide.... :)

03/04 Cobra is definately faster than the 05. The 05 since the new mustang weighs a bit more and has hp and torque. It is more comparable to the Mach 1 and 99/01 Cobra's than an 03/04 Cobra as far as performance is concerned.

PLEASE!!!!

No brainer. The 05' looks good but it is no Cobra.
Now when the 0?' year Cobra comes out..... I might consider a trade.

No question about it, the 03-04 Cobra IS faster than the 05 GT.


Road & Track tested the 03 Cobra in late 02 and it ran 0-60 times at 4.50 seconds. The best I've seen yet on the 05 GT is 5.2 seconds. Same with 1/4 mile, the Cobra is considerably quicker.

However, the GT is by far the fastest GT ever made and you have to give it props for that!!

A good race would be the following:

05 GT vs
04 Mach 1 vs
02 Cobra
That would be fun to watch!

Yes Firme is right 100 were built during the 02 model year and were sent Down Under. From what I understand it was a breath of fresh air for them. Makes me wonder what kind of roads they have got down there.

I guess we have to wait and see what the performance will be with the new Cobra whenever it will be released. How close it will look or perform to one of the hybrid conversions that the big three (Saleen, Sean Hyland Motorsports, and Rouch) have done to the 05 mustang GT. Also, I believe the short block uses similar hyperetic pistons and powdered metal connecting rods that the 99/01 cobra and 01-03 Mach 1 use. Having the internals as they are limits the potential of forced induction to under 6psi of boost. More than likely, the new cobra will incorporate the modified Eaton with the Lysholm rotors instead of the roots type. Makes me wonder how difficult it would be to swap out the rotors of the Eaton M112 and replace them with twin screw Lysholm rotors which is used in the Ford GT.
