Thoughts on the new Mustang GT-500
Theres alot of buzz about this car. I think it will be the biggest hit in the car world for years to come. What are your thoughts? I think that Chevrolet and Daimler-Chyrsler better step it up!!!
Here are some things people have said:
After seeing the GT500 in New York, AutoWeek magazine wrote: "On paper, the GT500 -- in development for more than a year and officially approved two months ago -- has enough power and flair to put Chevrolet's base Corvette C6 smack on the trailer."
Edmunds.com wrote: "This Cobra should satisfy even the most extreme performance enthusiasts and make Corvette drivers a little nervous."
And The Car Connection wrote: "With all the power promised for the new Cobra GT500, it's likely that almost everyone will have to follow."
Dealers seem to like it, too.
"I think the Shelby Cobra GT500 is awesome," said Grant Guzowski, a sales representative at Capistrano Ford in Orange County, California. "I have a customer who is waiting to get on a list to buy one. He can't wait. As soon as it comes out, he is going to buy one. Ford seems to have hit all the critical areas: straight-line acceleration, cornering, brakes, performance times. If you can buy a Mustang Cobra that will compete with a Porsche 911, like you can with this car, that's amazing. We're really excited. We can't wait to see them in the dealership."
