2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

You must drive one to experience it. The car has outstanding potential for increasing performance, but even stock it's a rush. I currently have just under 3000 miles on it and it is still breaking in.


Favorite Features

Engine. Engine. Engine. Engine.


Suggested Improvements

None, leave it to each Stang nut to do his/her own thing. That's what makes Mustangs great.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

This machine will blow the doors off of just about anything on the road, short of a Ferrarri. With very minor modifications, the robust cast iron V8 block will take a significant amount of more boost. A smaller pulley, free flowing cat back exhaust system, and new air filter will have this pony up around 500 HP. My only complaints are the shoddy trim quality and dated design of the interior, and the "blender-like" whine of the supercharger. Overall, a very fun vehicle to drive and it's certainly a head turner. Ford has grossly under stated it's horsepower at 390 HP, which is actually near 430 HP.


Favorite Features

The 112 cu. in. Eaton roots type supercharger, adding 110+ HP to the naturally aspirated 4.6L 4V predecessor.


Suggested Improvements

New interior design and more careful attention to interior trim fit and finish.

2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)


Review

Ok, for car of reasonable price I cannot believe it got such a low rating. I've driven almost all the other cars on the "top ten" list including the Audi TT, S2000, Miata, Boxter and the M3 and I own a 2003 SVT Cobra. If you're basing your rate on the 2001 SVT Cobra that might be why it's low. There is a 70 horsepower difference and a different tranny. I got my Cobra up to 173 MPH and it was smooth. It takes corners like nothing and the audio system rocks! I added two subs but stock is great! It has awesome resposive acceleration, handling, and a bunch of power. More horses then any of the other car on the list.


Favorite Features

I enjoy the Supercharged 390-Horsepower V-8 for the ride. The audio system is incredible. 6-in-dash-CD player with 8 bumpin' speakers.


Suggested Improvements

I would like leather seating such as in the Vette. And maybe a more beastly sounding exhaust.

Review

Smoking my tires as I left the dealership I felt no regret whatsoever purchasing the dream car. It comes stock with a beautiful body but the exhaust did need some help so I put flowmasters on it. The sound system was great and the MP3 was very nice :o)~ I do encourage SVT to make it standard or an option to have the Mach 1000 in the Cobra as opposed to standard Mach 460 (which is still very nice).


Favorite Features

The speed!


Suggested Improvements

Threating sounding exhaust, more interior options.

Review

i find that the 03 cobra isent that much faster than the 01 cobra, ford had to go to a supercharger to try and keep up with the corvette, ford should go back to the 351 in the cobra then they would be able to smoke the corvette. Stayign with that small block 289 just does not produce enough horse power or torque.


Favorite Features

sound of car with exhaust is very nice


Suggested Improvements

351 cobra r engine, better interior,
