I really would beg to differ on the state ments that c5 vettes handle like poop on a stick, I have driven and riden in both a stock c5 and a 96 nsx on twisty roads, and to be honest, I felt slightly more secure in the c5, and it was a bit faster, more throttle response, and easier to drive faster.

the cobra I am not sure, but thevette is definetly a good handling car.

Furthermore, the Z06 is THE dominant car is SCCA stock racing classes (both road racing and autocrossing). I doubt the Z06 handles like poop on a stick considering its out-running cars that cost twice as much.

The C5 Vette, and the Z06 in particular, are pretty **** impressive cars.

And I don't think the Cobra was ever intended to compete with the Vette. The think the new Cobra is targeted at blowing the doors off the dying Camaro Z28 SS.

The new GT40..... now that is looking like a Ford that will take some fire from the Z06!

New Cobra not poop on a stick...

If you have seen the new Car and Driver mag (June 2002) The 2003 Cobra is on the cover. First of all they gave it a very good review, and second of all if you look at the comparison you will notice that its quicker than the Vette in the 1/4 mile and from 0-60 mph. Cobra 0-60 4.5 sec, and 12.9 1/4 mile.

Now, I know that a Ford doesn't have the luxury of our Acura's but they arent meant to have luxury. But for 35 grand, and about 15 grand cheaper than the Vette.... I must say I am impressed. The review sounds like the car handles impressively well also.

Dont get me wrong, I love my Legend but the Stang will always have a place in my heart. It was my first car, and I would consider making the new Cobra my next.

What do you think???

Z06, high 11s?, I think not... here are the real ZO6 numbers:

Corvette ZO6
price: 45-50,000$
hp: 405
0-60: 4.7 sec
0-100: 10.8 sec
1/4 mile: 13.1 @111.0mph

Somehow you seem to have gotton 1/4 times mixed up with the Ferrari F50 and McLaren F1.

ok

here the fact for the cobra=(5 to 60 mph) figure of just 4.9 seconds. Remember, that's a launch initiated with the clutch fully engaged, with the engine turning over at very low revs ok here are for the z06 after lil searching around car and driver and motor trend =GM says the Corvette Zo6 will reach 60 mph in less than four seconds and polish off the quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds. Considering we've had trouble slipping 460-hp Vipers under the four-second mark and that a Z06 has never hit 60 in less than 4.3 seconds by our hands or reached 1320 feet in less than 12.7 seconds, it's possible we won't be able to substantiate these claims.

A Vette Z06 backed down to me and chickened out at the starting line at the track a year ago. We lined up, getting ready to go and the Vette saw my Legend and left. I had to run by myself...

Ok so the Vette had steam coming out from under his hood and probably damaged something but still, he backed down against me :p hehehehehe...

Probably better for me, some of those 60/70's Stangs I ran against made me look like a Civic trying to race a Legend. LOL.

before you start talkin out of the hole you put your poop stick in why dont you read up on how "bad" the Z06 vette handles, they're like .1 g's behind the S2000 in cornering....which says they'll out corner any other Honda out there minus the bikes
