    depends what you want. The 06 will be a much nicer car overall, better interior, better ride etc but the cobra is faster with alot more potential.

    This is what I'm torn over. I'm sick of my 99 GT but I don't know how much better of a car the Cobra is over what I own. The 05 isn't as aesthetically pleasing to me but it is such a nicer car.

    i was lookin at the stats.. and the 03's can do 0-60 in about 4.5 according to car and driver... i was reading an article in a recent C&D and they got a new GT to do 0-60 in 4.9, so im thinking the difference is kind of negligible.

    With minimal mods i know the Cobra will run 11's or 10's.. can the GT be made quick like that with minimal mods as well? Anyone with this knowledge?

    there are 05's in the 10's already but they are rare. Blowers, spray, turbo's are all coming down the pipes for the car.

    I went with my boss to the Ford dealership today, as he needed to pick up his paperwork from his recent purchase.

    They had a brand new Saleen sitting outside. I love what they did to the rear end, as it gets rid of everything I hate about the new Mustang. So after a round around the car, a salesman walks up, and goes, "It's for sale!" "No thanks, don't need a new car" "It's not just a car, its a MACHINE!" "Listen, I know its a Saleen, I'm not an idiot. If I were spending that kind of money, I wouldnt be picking up a Mustang. Now go find someone else to bug."

    So in conclusion, 03 Cobra > 06 GT

    I just liked the rear. I hate the rear on the new Mustang. It's too bubbly for me. Other than that, they pulled off a good car. The Saleen rear took care of that.
