ITs true man they made a Cobra R in 95 and they made one before that too that was built on a fox platform. The 95 one sucked. It was just a 5.8 motor with no back seats or a/c and a beefed up suspension. Still a PI GT with a few bolt ons could outperform that old pig. They're not nearly as rare as the 00 R's but its kinda cool to say you have a 351 5.8 under your hood . . . .

All the Cobra R's didnt come with power windows, or radios, or back seats. The 93, 95 and 2000.... A factory race car was what they were after. I just cant wait to see what the S197 body style Cobra R will look like. I have a strong feeling its going to look alot like the GT-R concept model.
