    Hello everyone. I am throwing around the idea of a convertible Terminator.

    What is the ride like in these cars? I have lots of seat time in a 2004 GT Convertible and the ride is awful. Is the Cobra any better being a higher end model?

    Thanks

    It will be essentially the same. The Cobra springs are slightly stiffer (600#), but the car weighs slightly more, so the two will come close to cancelling out. Sporty cars are generally not smooth riding, since smooth riding generally does not equate to good handling.

    The cobra vert actually has softer springs than the cobra coupe. It is not bad on decent roads but poor road surfaces will def be annoying. But again it aint a fn lexus...
