There are always those random good deals (although sometimes there is a reason for that) but as a whole they have good resale. Probably because of racecar and the Fast and Furious crowd out there.

Yea your completely right. I had an impulse buy because I love the looks of the wrx and planned on modding it. But it just wasn't worth it in the end.

Miss my terminator. The fastest car I've ever owned. 12.34@116 and with P/I/E and it handled better than any Mustang, ever. I wish I had kept it and paid it off and kept low miles on her. Love my 15 and it's growing on me, especially after the intake! If I can get close to 300 whp after a tune, I think I'll be just fine.

Yea I absolutely love it! I'm taking it on a nice Mtn cruise tomo with about 15 other cars. Pretty stoked!

Yea there's nothing to them. But it is an 03 so you can't expect much with the interior. And it's not much worse than the wrx lol

Sad but kind of true. The Cobra had better seats and a great clutch but that's about the extent. Kind of apples and oranges but still fun to reminisce.

Yea I had a 13 limited with the leather seats. And my cobra seats are much more comfortable and I'm more snug in them.

the ergonomics are terrible though, pedals are too close together(for me anyway) idk, i've only ever driven a GT. That interior was really a 1998 interior which pretty much carried over from 1994 I think. All the japanese cars of the time had much better interiors, the tides seem to be turning in that respect though

Yeah, honestly, you can't compare any other Mustang to the 03 Cobra. My 2011 5.0, wasn't as nice. I swear. The Cobra had a better clutch, IRS, better interior and with little mods, I put 414 to the rear wheels on a dyno in Charlotte. You can't beat that for less than $2K in mods. The only thing I didn't like in the Cobra was the shifter. I only lost 2 street races in that car and it was to a Viper ACR and another highly modified Cobra who spun a bearing when we finished. I felt bad for the guy but he won and then had to rebuild his engine. Yikes. Not that I condone any of the above.

But again, I digress. I love my 2015 WRX and I hope to run high 12's or I'm buying a STI or new Mustang (depending on how they look, feel and ride) next year and keep this as my DD.

Yeah I was think on the 2011's were a much better buy than the old cobra's but people don't seem to like them as much. I considered one, there was a 2012 gt near me with 20k for $21000 or something. I need 4 doors though.

Yea it seems like alot if guys on the svt forums sold there cobras for 11+ gt and ended up making their way back to the cobras. Most of them say because of the raw violent felling you get from driving a cobra.
