I recently purchased this Cobra after 5 months of researching for the combination I wanted. (Low mileage, minimal owners, flawless service history, all stock, convertible) I found this car with 13,500 all original miles on it. It was garaged for the majority of its life, driven only occasionally, left completely stock, used with only full synthetic fluids, and well taken care of. When I first test drove the car I was floored by it's power and had to reteach myself to drive the manual transmission to be able to handle it all! I bought this car and modified it for better performance (not that it needed it) Very dependable, lots of power, great handling
Fairly rare production numbers, independent rear suspension, hand- built monster of an engine, dohc, traction control button, low maintenance, head turner, easy-to- operate convertible top, It is so fun to drive that I often take it out for a spin for no reason.
I wish they would have used forged rods and pistons and more daring camshafts. I'm not a fan of the front seat style, and would have preferred it to be a two-seater.
This has been the most fun car I've ever owned. Despite being 6 years old, I've not had any problems with it, and am impressed with the quality. Fuel economy is good for a 'muscle' car/sports car. It hits 60 in 5.4 sec. and has a top speed of 150. It is at the top of the heap of upscale sports cars, outperforming the BMW Z4, Honda S2000, Nissan 350Z and Porsche Boxster to name a few. As a somewhat rare model, it is very underrated.
Speed, convertible top, soft comfortable ride for sports car. Roomy with 4 seats and good trunk space.
Great car. Fun to drive. Completely
original except for tires which have
been replaced 3 times.
I had a 86 GT and the clutch went in
20k miles, I replaced with an after
market and the car ran for another 100k
without a problem. Had the same thing
happen with this car and am still
riding nicely with the replacement.
Ford needs to work on that.
Good looks. Fast enough. Smooth ride
for a sportscar. Solid engine. Great
Needs better seats. I end up in the
passenger seat on quick left handers.
Bought car used with 24K miles, now
has 36K; not sure how hard previous
owner was on car but clutch needed
replacement at 36K. Otherwise no
problems. As usual with Ford, I think
the interior plastic could use some
improvement. But no rattles and a
tight body so far. Engine has plenty
of power and car is fun to drive.
Driver's seat could use more
adjustments for a more comfortable
ride, but at 6'2", it's not bad.
Little hard on the gas.
BOO-KOO POWER TO SPARE!! NICE RIDE
QUALITY FOR SPORTS CAR; GREAT HANDLING
CAPABILITY. CONVERTIBLE TOP IS PRETTY
QUIET ON FREEWAY. GREAT SOUND SYSTEM.
TRACTION CONTROL CAN BE TURNED ON/OFF.
MORE HORSEPOWER (YOU CAN NEVER HAVE
ENOUGH). MORE ADJUSTMENTS ON SEATS
AND BETTER HEADRESTS. COULD USE A
LITTLE HIGHER GRADE OF LEATHER ON
SEATS (NITPICKING HERE A LITTLE;
THEY'RE PRETTY GOOD BUT COULD USE SOME
IMPROVEMENT). THAT'S ABOUT IT...ALL IN
ALL, REAL HAPPY WITH CAR.
I have a 99 Mustang Cobra. It is
awsome. I get so many heads turned
towards me. Well actually the car. I
love it. Ive never had so much
attention from strangers in my life.
It is very powerful and fast. On top
of the already fast stock engine,
there are so many thinks you can do to
the engine to make it even faster,
with the aftermarket parts. You ask
people if they like the Firebird,
Camaro or the Mustang better, 8 out of
10 will say they prefer the Mustang.
Mustang, the great American
Looks awsome from the outside and
inside. The Engine. Very Fast
Dont embarace GM so bad next time.
Mustang put the Camaro and Firebird to
shame. They are in heaven now though.
