Right now, we don't have a lot of specifics about the upcoming Z28, or whatever the rumors want to call it. All I can say is that it is going to be a big winner for a lot of reasons.

Most Z28 info is brother-in-law's hairdressers sons girlfriends dad works at GM and says something. The more Ford does, the more GM will do. The only one that crys about it is Al Gore.

The GT500 is made by Ford, not Shelby. There are rumors that the Shelby Branding may be allowed to expire in the near future. However market position that the GT500 fills (factory beast) will continue, perhaps as a SVT version, or Cobra version, etc.

The 2010 and 2011 already have alcantara used throuhgout the interior, including the steering wheel, so this is nothing new.

By dual exhaust, I assume you mean the electronic dumps, as dual exhaust is standard on the base and GT Mustang, let alone the GT500.

I thought there was a spy shot showing the HP Camaro with Sparco seats.

GT500 gets the Recaro seats for 2012, and there are currently no plans to let the Shelby naming scheme expire after 2012. Of course anything can change particularly since that decision is obviously not up to Ford alone. Right now, the revival of the SVT Cobra in place of the Shelby-SVT GT500 is apparently little more than wishful thinking from a very small, but very vocal, group of SVT Cobra die-hards.

Shelby GT500, SVT GT500, IDC GT500; all the same.

That's right, they all spell out ass-whipping in any variation.

The SVT cobra is still the best mustang ever made IMO. But it seems one could argue that the upcoming Z/28 would be the spiritual succesor to the cobra but with a much stronger IRS and more balanced weight distrubution.

not quite, a SVT mustang will never be called GT500 without Shelby name.
The SVT cobra and GT500 are to different machines, with two different purposes, one was truefully inspired by competition, the other was from nostalgia.

The Cobra was a great bang for the buck car, but woefully outclassed by 2011 GT500 in every way. The Z28, or whatever it will be called, will be doing well to be on-par with the new Shelby.

The Terminator package was a great engine in an extremely sub par package. The car has a following to be sure, but I wouldn't own one if I actually had to pay for it and I have an extremely soft spot for Mustangs.

What are you talking about, the '03-'04 Cobra was outclassed by the 2007 GT500. Still, n a straight line, the '03 Cobra after just about a DECADE now have only been beaten by the GT500's and remain unmatched by others, standing at #2 on the pony car list. It's impressive still. It will get knocked down a peg or two (finally) when this HP/Z28 thing finally gets pushed through and whatever adjustments are made (if any) to the SS and 5.0.

I don't know if the Z28 gunna beat the GT500.

I highly doubt it. just the price alone I have a hard time believing that the Z28 can compete prices with the GT500.

If we talking stock, then you're down to #3. 5.0 > Cobra there.

I consider the 2011 Alum block GT500 the 'best' Mustang ever built, which is what I was replying too. You are correct, that after all these years the Cobra is still in the top 5, and even higher when considering 'ability to mod' and bang for the buck.
