Motor Trend Just released info that Carroll Shelby is working to put out a 2007 mustang Cobra.

Supercharged 5.4L 3v= 550hp.:eek:
$47,000-$55,000..... MY Guess.

What do you think the 2006 Cobra will be priced at? $37k-$45k?

(MotorTrend/Car and Driver) I remember about 6-8 months ago there was a SMALL pic of it wth Mr. Shelby standing next to it. White with blue stripes. Anyone see it?

I also read yesterday that Carroll Shelby Industries is being sued for using the "Eleanor" name.

I would not look for the new Cobra to be that high of a price. Although I own a Mystichrome, I would rather have a car that is unsuspecting and leave the competition in the dust then to let someone know what I have. Most people think the Mystichrome is an aftermarket paint job anyway. :(

The next Cobra is the 2007 model, to be introduced in last half of 2006.
No model in 2005 or 2006.

I don't know about most of you guys, but I'm a road racing guy and the news of the next Cobra being a solid axle has me pretty pissed. Ford is showing no ingenuity whatsoever. They use an off-the-shelf engine (the Ford GT) and can't get an IRS on the damn car? Give me a break! They'll put an IRS on the Explorer and Expedition, but not their mainstream sports car?

I hope the one thread is right and Motor Trend is a little off in their reporting. If this new Shelby Cobra comes out with a solid axle and a supercharged (read HEAVY) engine, then I'm buying the new 2006 Z06! Ford cannot compete with Chevy, I'm so sorry to say. Hell, I'm on my fourth Mustang, a 2003 Cobra, it's not like I'm a bowtie man, but Ford is just loosing this battle with Chevy. They can kill the crappy Camaro, but Ford is no match for the engineering found in the Corvette. If you're a drag racing guy, I guess the new Cobra is your dream car. For the rest of us...out of luck!
