    i love the look of the supra and the sound of the cobra...can't i have both. i'd prob take the supra. wider aftermarket i think for them. better interior too.

    yeah i love the interior ergonomics of the supra.. but the leather toyota uses feels like rubber.. and i wouldnt trade my suede seats for anything...


    well often times the big hp supras have very large single turbo setups... running a lot of boost... sometimes it takes those things half the track to spool up.. once they do however they are unbeatable... for expample i know we have all seen those amazing supra highway races... the 03 cobras are IRS as well, most amazing is how nitrous pete (the owner of the 790rwhp cobra) is still using the stock IRS... and i didnt think the stock halfshafts were capable of handling that kind of power... yet traction is still a HUGE problem.. i could only imagine

    either way both cars are amazing... the aftermarket is steadily growing for the 03 cobras and we really wont know its true capabilites for a while....but im completely confident that the numbers will reach the 1000hp mark on the stock internals....

    the cobra is an AMAZING car

    but after reading the car and driver review on it, all i can say is that interior looks like it came straight from a neon. I just expected more for such an expensive car.

    i agree

    but after reading the car and driver review
    that was the stupidest review ever written..we all know c&d is euro/jap biased.. so its no surprise... the cobra did outperform all of the cars..

    i notice you say LOOKS... the seats are unbelievably comfortable and they are suede with adjustable side bolsters i mean those puppies keep you in place

    I just expected more for such an expensive car.
    what the heck are you talking about?

    t3 u can't expect everyone to like or respect the cobra. ya know. we all know most narrow minded domestic or import guys have no respect for anything but there on "brand" it's just not his flavor he may like a lexus is300 over the force of the wrx. to each his own.

    I am a diehard muscle car fan. I have loved them since I was a kid. I only wish I could afford a car like the new Cobra. Not to mention the insurance on that sucker with my crappy driving record. If you don't mind me asking, how much is your insurance?

    gotta say i like that new cobra first off.

    that nitrous pete guy gonna put slicks on with that kinda power? i wouldnt wanna stand near that thing while its launching. hehe

    only thing i'm stll not impressed with is the power per liter output of the ford mod motor. with 4 valve heads and forced induction it should be near 100 hp per liter out of the factory i would think. guess you have to make a few sacrifices for a wwwwiiiidddddddeee powerband that starts near idle

    oh yeah and don't worry about that car and driver crap if there was a bmw in the comparo it would have won even if it was slowest and most expensive.
