Cobra Venom

http://www.autoblog.com/2008/06/25/r...n-cobra-venom/

Huh? Prefer the cobra concept ford has been carting around by far to this. It doesn't seem to say who rendered it.... Plus they act like it is a legit from factory render....

interesting in its own respect. But not good enough to carry the cobra name.

As above I agree 100%. The Cobra design is so iconic that differing even this much is pointless and, IMO, ill-advised. The LS7 powered, Racer X designed Cobra wanna-be posted here not long ago, while a bit fussy and extraneous in more than a few places, was closer to the basic concept which should be followed. (for those who might be interested the Racer X designed car was itself actually a knock off of a Cobra update conceived by Auto Carrier in a never realized bid to bring the original design into the modern era...either that or Racer X and AC designers have very similar ideas on how to given the car a more modern bend)

I like it but the rear end needs to be reworked.

I hate it. The Cobra should stay a roadster, always a roadster. There is a reason that there are so few Cobras with hardtops back in the day, or as replicas. Because they are so dang ugly. There is also a reason that the Daytona came with the proportions that it did. Because it was the most beautiful design ever given to the human race by God.

This just shows, quite blatantly, that two beautiful things do not always make beautiful offspring...
