Great concept = factory forged motor that you can just keep turning up the boost until you run out of traction......

I take it that happens to be yours? I would love to buy a svt cobra, but now the 04's are starting to age. I'd hate to sink 30k into one with low miles on it and for it to be getting old. I don't know, maybe I will go for a 99' or something. Something not as high in price, maybe something with a built motor in it, and then go from there with the whipple. Definitely get the 3.4, but now I hear there is a whipple 4.0 in the makes. You should youtube the gt500 with the 3.4 from lethal performance man, it is one sick car.

Thats all in ones own opinion. Newer ride? yes, better ride? In my eyes, no. Better looking? maybe to you, to me? no.

Everybody has different tastes in the way a car looks. Back then, I loved that Mustang design so much I bought one in 1998 before they changed the look to the ugly 99 and up years...I like the look of the Camaro better now after seeing them side by side in my driveway. However back in the day when the 2010 Camaro and the concept didn't exist, the Mustang was king in looks for a budget sports car..

Like I said, its your opinion lol. I would buy a 04, but like I said, I don't want to sink that much money into a ageing car. I may do a 99' and mod the hell out of it, if it has lower miles, or a new built engine in it. I know I had a chance about 2 years ago at a 99' with a 302 in it, with some goodies pushing around the 490 range on a conservative tune.

The 2003-4 Cobras are basically the Skylines/Supras of the American modding scene. It's completely insane what you can do with them.

Not mine, that guy seems to have a few vids out. I think a TVS is a good and inexpensive way to get to 600Rwhp for a daily driver. Of course, KB if you are going for crazy power.

Only problem I have with the Terminator is that the GT500 is a better car in every respect. Really glaring differences? The interior in the SN95's is positively archaic in comparison.....ergonomics are terrible and materials are horrible...and the GT500 is a better dynamic car in every way. Factor in the reality that the GT500 is faster both stock and modded and the night and day difference in handling between the two the Terminators really shouldn't be demanding the money that they do IMO.

If Termy's were cheaper I would likely feel different since value is always a factor, but right now the price tags attached to these things still makes me prop up an eyebrow.

That is if you can even find one.. Tried earlier in the year for the 'ploder and settled on late 4th gen Firebirds. Sucked really, they have a faux Cobra done up at WMU's lab that I loved (wat). Donated from Don Seelye in 03 and had so much crap done to it..

Well, that was 2 years ago. Probably either got rid of it now or have something else setup on that frankenstang.

You really have no idea about these cars. Yes, they may be quicker stock, but they were also given more horsepower. Give me the difference in cash and the cobra will absolutely eat it alive. I mean alive. These cars have been tested with the same modifications, or around the same amount of horsepower and the cobra has won every time basically. You also need to learn what a sn95 is. Not just that but for what the cobra is, it handles great. Do your research skipper. These cars are worth every dime.

The real deal is the best thing. I can't afford to buy a 03-04 right now, well...I possibly could...but if I were to buy one right now I'd just get a 99' svt cobra, build the engine up, all basic bolt ons, and put a 3.4 whipple on it. That'd be a play toy though. I am not going to though.

don't know about that... the shelby's imo are better all around. terms are good no doubt, but i don't think the stock IRS will hold up to the kind of power both cars are capable of (600 + on stock internals, capable of much more than that even). on the other hand, the Shelby has the solid rear that i think is bulletproof for the most part and with just a few upgrades you can put that power to the ground real easy. the cobra is lighter because the SN95 is a lighter overall platform but i think the shelby overall is the better ride... still don't know why terms are priced where they're at still but lately i've seen them coming down in price to high teens... they were priced mid to low 20s for awhile. i'd rather go with the Shelby if i had the money. slicks, control arms, pulley swap, cai and tune and that's enough for me... plus i prefer the looks... i like both cars though

high teens, low miles might be worth a shot though... don't know if i'd pay 25K for a term that has 30K miles, 18 - 19K is a different story

Haha, look at that interior t is horrific!!! Nasty is the only thing I can say sorry. Like mentioned above an SS moded slightly will give you a much more effetient ride with a million times better looking interior and exterior.

The current generation mustangs are just better overall in all non-performance categories. They are larger, more comfortable, feel more solid and poised, better interior, and IMO look better. Pretty much fixing everything I did not like in the previous Gen, unless you are strictly looking for a track car and never drive the darn thing on the road.

Yea except the Supra's are just dyno queens. The Terminators had track times to back up their dyno numbers.
