If the Shelby Cobra comes out, will it hold back the performance of the SVT Cobra? THe Ford GT is 500HP and $140K and rumors have it that if the Shelby Cobra is built it will cost about the same as a Viper ($83K). Since it would be cheaper, I would also expext it to have less HP than Fords Flagship car the GT(40). THe same then could probably be said for the SVT Mustang Cobra, Ford wouldn't want the $35K SVT Cobra to be as fast as an $80K Shelby Cobra. If the Shelby is built then we might get a Ford line up that looks like this: Ford GT = 500HP Shelby Cobra = 460HP SVT Cobra = 425HP or if the final production Ford GT HP goes up, thanks to the new twin screw s/c it now has, we might see. Ford GT = 550HP Shelby Cobra = 500HP SVT Cobra = 450HP It seems like for us Mustang fans it would be better if the Shelby isn't built, Then we could get a higher HP Cobra, What do you guys think?
