I guess you haven't read the Motor Trend from January of 04' then have you? I guess you lose this argument too<IMG src=smileys/smiley17.gif border="0"> Not to mention I guess Dave Hill, Corvette's current design chief, has not been honest with us either in telling us we could expect hp numbers to equal to current supercars, which is the 500hp range.

You lost because I called you out on your Motor Trend argument and gave you a reference, just as I have in every other post. I really can't believe I actually come here and argue with teenie boppers about this stuff.I think I have found a great way to end our argument, and even though part of what I am about to say will never happen, as it never has, but it still holds one big truth. Ready??? Here Goes!!! </P>


Who cares if a Mustang is faster in the 1/4 mile or 0-60 (part that has yet to be true for stock cars)? The point isthe Mustang is notan exotic in reality, or in style, and will never be comparable to a Vette period. A Vette will always command more attention on the road, because people can instantly spot a Vette and know that they are a performance machine. The only people who can spot a Cobra from a regular Mustang V6 are true enthusiasts, not your everyday person. But a Vette, well it will always be "America's Sports Car" and people all over know that. They resepect that. Another point to be made is that the only people who ever try and compare their car to yours is people with a lesser car. Point and Case....Even if your Stang was faster, it's still just a Mustang, and will never be the equal of a Vette in all around Style and Performance.</P><edited><editID>DontEvenTry</editID><editDate>37992.9807291667</editDate></edited>

<SPAN class=bold>SA_Cobra,</SPAN></P>


<SPAN class=bold>If you read the Jan. issue of Motor Trend, you'll see that the C6 will indeed have a 500 HP Z06. And like <SPAN class=bold>DontEvenTry had said, that will not even be the fastest Vette, there's still the 600+ HP version with the C5R engine. The base Vette will be 400 HP, taking on Mustangs and some of the imports. The Z06 will take on various European sports cars and the top dog C5R powered version will probably play with the supercars likeLambos and maybe even challenge the Enzo a bit.</SPAN></SPAN></P>


<SPAN class=bold><SPAN class=bold>We have to admit that the Mustang is not a sports car (except the Cobra R). Even if it does beat the Vette in a drag, hp for hp, it will not beat a Vette on a raetrack unless heavily modified. Vettes are not built purely for straight line speed. A Z06 could beat an NSX on a roadcourse, no stockMustang (again, except the R) could even come close to an NSX on a track (different story on the stripe).</SPAN></SPAN></P>

Wow this has been a very good debate....it's by far the best four pages on this forum I've found thus far. I've found myself agreeingwith you Donteventry, I have the latest issue of Autoweek and the cover story is about the C6 vette, they also mentioned the "Blue Devil" project in that story, so I knew exactly what you were talking about.</P>

First off, try using punctuation. Secondly, where has a stock Cobra beat a stock Z06? I have posted a link to a Z06 with less hp than a 03 Cobra in this thread, and guess who get's literally blown away? Well, I'll let you watch. Next time you want to make a comment like that, have something to prove your statement with, because anyperson with the slightest knowledge about carsknows it's crap.</P>

2005 mustang gt: 300 horses @6000 rpmand 315 tq @ 4500 rpm. the cobra is expected to have 400+ horses. the 2005 v6 mustang will be a 4.0 liter rated at 202 horses. the 2005 corvette c6 base engine which is a 6.0 v8will make 400 horse @ 6000 rpmand 400 tq @ 4400 rpm. the weight of the gt is supposely 3425 lbs and the corvette weights in at 3245. i'm kinda curious how the new mustang rides, both the gt and regular v6. <edited><editID>CaTiRo</editID><editDate>37995.5814814815</editDate></edited>

try this tell dave hill to pull his head out of his *** and try a little harder. his car that isn't even a car yet has already been beat by 2 supercars in the ford line up. one of wich will give chase to the enzo thats a hard target.

How about this: I'll go back to "bowtie land", and you go get an education. Your numbers are meaningless without proof. The only stock Z06a stock 03' Cobra might have a chance with, which I still doubt will win, is a 01 Z06, which had 385 hp.By reading what you write, I would assume you are not the sharpest tool in the shed. Here's why!!! How does a less hp car, that weighs 500lbs more than a Z06, beata Z06 that has15 more hp? If this car can reallybeat it, then how come the video I posted with a 25hp less Z06 absolutely smoke a 03' Cobra? I may be on the wrong site for my car (yes I drive a modified C5Vette), but atleast my posts have validity, make sense, and are proven. I don't know why I even bother discussing this withyou. I would assume you are some little teenie bopper whomost likely drives a Mustang Gt, the slow man's V8.As said before, get an education before posting again, as you are making us all much dumber.</P><edited><editID>DontEvenTry</editID><editDate>37995.8057638889</editDate></edited>

You call it trolling while I call it an education in facts. I only post when I see people distorting information, which is quite often, hence my comments in this thread. In fact, I do remember a conversation you and I had in another thread about a stock 03 Cobra vs. a stock Corvette (no Z06). It was about a guy who was about to geta brand new Cobra, and his brother had a 99 hardtop Vette. I remember you saying the Vette would have no chance. Well did you ever get the opportunity to read the outcome of that race? If not, you should take a look.</P>

If you didn't "give a f" then why do you always compare these two cars, and why are you responding to my threads. Obviously you do care. I'm only trying to enlighten you with facts, that's all. Now can we be friends?</P>
