a couple of years for the shelby edition then back to regular Cobra. They will make this car a collector. Buy one and keep it, be ready for unbelieveable dealer markups on this car.

"Final prices are not set but the last SVT Cobra cost $35,000. Ford officials say the goal is to keep this car priced less than $40,000. “You won’t be able to touch this performance for the money,” Thai-Tang says. GT500s will be built at the Ford/Mazda joint-venture plant in Flat Rock alongside Mustang and Mustang GT. Ford won’t commit to a production number, but says it will build all the 500s drivers demand."

Not limited production!! two cars are going to be built or svt will only build the true "super cars" aka the GT and Shelby concept.

I think one car....Ford has waited too long to get Shelby back to do a GT 500. Note, Cobra came about after, shelby left. Not sure why he did not sue ford back in the day, unless I missed it.

I would love to get a shelby...could just barely afford my GT. I got mine with out a mark up. Maybe after the first year or two the availablity and price will stabilize.....maybe by then with no more child support...I can afford one.

I really dont want to miss out the second time on owning a shelby.

You're a little late with this post don't you think
That poll was conducted last spring.

SHELBY in, SVT COBRA out! And the winner is... I REALLY don't like this at all. I realize the name was unwieldy however, the car is engineered, tested, certified, and produced by sVT and FORD, not the old man. I hope that the car is rebadged a year from now and this may afect my $50+k purchase decision. I don't want to pay for a bunch of Baby BOOMERs fond recollections of a drug addled youth. I just want the stuff man. Tell you what FORD, you take all the stickers and SHELBY crap off it, put in the AL block and I'll give you an extra 5k.

maybe the alum 5.4 4v that Kevin 05kcstang(?) recently leaked will be put into a regular cobra. no forged internals just raw N/A displacement power in a lighter engine....?

I don't understand why FORD can't come up with two versions for 06. A Shelby GT500 and a SVT Cobra. $37,995 for SVT Cobra and 39,995 for the Shelby GT500. I'll take either.
