ok svtdriver i see your "assumption"/"opinion" point. nonetheless, the 06 cobra will be moving into the 40k price range, especially with a blown 5.4L. can you justify it not going there especially with all this corvette talk? its already a 35k car, this is a total redesign using the GT(40) engine, come on, man, wake up! Ford has already decided that svt will be an "upscale" brand, and if they are going after the vette, there will be an upscale price, that is not speculation, technology, development, power all cost money which will undoubtably be passed on to the consumer. that is basic economics 101. do i have a sheet in front of me showing the price in front of me? no. but i also cant prove the earth is round that doesnt mean it isnt, its just common knowledge and a little common sense. back to my original thesis, if ford goes after the vette and moves the cobra into the 40k price bracket, the cobra will die. or svt will have to scale back which would be embarassing. cobra is a great car, for what it is, a corvette it is not, two different animals. the cobra dominates its niche moving out of that niche is called biting the hand that feeds you. put that car too close to vette price and vette customers arent gonna go look at mustangs, mustang customers are gonna go see what they could have for a few bucks more at the chebby dealership and yes this is speculation only, but like i said, some things are just common sense.
