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


The Cobra can be just another car or step on the hammer and take off like a rocket. It even sounds like one (Supercharger).Don't waste time comparing it to another car. The '03 Cobra's top speed is governed at 155mph (170+ w/out it). Compare it to a Cessna: seats 4 & it does 160mph...on land. Cobra's traction control switch is fun.Keep it on and it behaves somewhat civilized. Turn it off and wheels spin, smoke comes out of the tires. Also a locking differential (if wheel spins torque is sent to the wheel w traction). The snake unlike a roadster lets you take the kids/dog along for a ride. And taking rides you will:To go get bread or milk (next town over)

Best Features

If you are looking for the "european sedan or European sports car feel" go somewhere else. Even with Traction Control on you just never run out of passing oomph at any speed (all six of them). Again, this is about power. And about fun. You can drive it mild or wild.

Worst Features

Ford/SVT should offer 50% discount to current owners. This way we can buy another one for our significant others so they leave ours alone. Or just so that we can have a coupe AND a convertible. The 03 Cobra at 390 horsepower just doesn’t get any better for the price
