Default Cobra vs GT500

So I just watched a youtube video that pitted a '08 gt500 against an '03 cobra it was shocking they voted for the 03 saying that even though it was a smaller engine and had a second slower track time that it retained more of the sporty charisma of a mustang. (Thumbs up) Anyways the only pet peev i have regarding the cobras are the interiors...I know you can do billet accessories and such but is there anything that will more drastically liven up the inside?

Yeah, 6 years later, I still prefer the Terminator over the GT500. Part of it is probably because I've been able to drive a Terminator but not a GT500 I'm sure, but also the S197 body style has never really appealed to me (tho it IS slowly growing on me).

As far as the New Edge interior goes, I don't think it's that bad. Everybody seems to dislike it, but I have no complaints. I'm not really sure what you can do to zing it up...

I myself think the NEW mustangs like 2010 2011 look really agressive from the front...but it just doesnt say mustang to me, as far as the 03 interiors...the only thing that i really dont enjoy is the passenger airbag, other than that...they are awesome I have seen a lot of people paint their interiors, but i dont think i could bring myself to do such a thing...

I prefer the terminator, but the GT500's have really been growing on me lately.

I've driven both and currently own my preference.. The gt500.. They Are both awesome but I prefer the roomier interior of my gt500 compared to the termie.. Look wise .. I love the retro look of my gt500 but the termie stance is justsi freaking mean.. It took a new more aggressive hood and other appearance mods on my gt500 to acheive what I wanted though.. Both great cars for sure

The brand new bodystyles are so sick. The original S197's, I did not care for AT ALL. But the 2010+ bodystyles, I think they are SEXY!

I could afford both but drive the Cobra by choice. Visceral is the best description I have heard.

Funny you said that. A friend of mine has a Porsche, and the first time he drove my Cobra he used 'visceral' as well to describe the difference. Since then I've thought it's the perfect word too...

I like my Cobra very much, but the GT500s are pretty badass too. I would probably skip ahead to the 2010 version though.
