Well, as I've said....the jury's still out on the new cobra for me. Guess it really doesn't matter anyways, I'm enjoying my 05 GT too much to get worked up over it. I wouldn't put down final judgement on the GT500 till one gets to see it up close in the flesh. I had the same experience with my new GT. I had only seen them in photos....and while cool looking though they were, I was hopelessly in love when I finally got to see one in person on the dealership lot.
The cobra is out of my price range anyways.....and I'm not a fan of convertibles either. To someone considering one, I say stick with the coupe. Go for a GT if you want a convertible.
I can pass on the cobra for now........but if SVT puts out a fly Mach 1 for the new gen mustangs, I'm gonna be in a serious financial dilema. lol
