I'm pretty sure I read 500 in a issue of Motor Trend. Looks like I better Google it up. Ford certainly isn't gonna stop at just the 395hp of the 2003 Cobra, that's for sure.cutlass4lfe said:I'm sure that mrmixitup just made a mistake, but the 2005 Mustang won't have 500 hp, it's been rumored to have 400, and yes the rumors include a supercharger.
With the next Cobra to compete head on with the Viper, the engine will produce in the 500HP plus range. KB has the kit that SVT will license and drop the Eaton.

But I honestly believe it won't be anything near that, more around 300 hp or so...probably utilizing the DOHC 4.6 liter from previous Cobras. Anyone agree? By the way, just signed up here....SRT-4 is a damn sweet car. Got to drive one two days ago, and I get to drive it again on Friday.
Alot better than the current one I own. However, most of us here really don''t care so much about the looks but performance oriented.

They are still feared because they can still kick butt, trust me I know several Daytona's that will leave our SRT's like they are standing still, and a couple GLHS's that will pass you like your driving in reverse. One car in particular is a '92 Daytona Iroc R/T that is cranking a cool 320 hp at the wheels and it will Rock your socks off.SRT-Hunter said:i dont think the srt-4 will be rememberd much at all in 10-15 years. Just look at cars like the Dodge Daytona of the 1980's . Small turbo charged 4 bangers...215hp....and they are nothing today.
Yeah, hold your breath on that one. Detroit concepts are always mean, but wait till they get to the showroom before you're impressed.mrmixitup said:The Mustang is doing a fine job of hanging in there. The 2005 GT model will have a 500hp supercharged engine.
This is reality, unfortuanately. However, the Viper moves up a notch to the 600HP with the upcoming Hemi V-10.Auto-Xer said:
