Ford Teases Drag-Ready Mustang Cobra Jet, Dodge Demon Beware

Ford has dropped a teaser image for its 2018 Mustang Cobra Jet, which is set to challenge the Dodge Demon for drag-strip supremacy.

Certainly, it won’t be for sales supremacy, as the Demon’s production run has come to an end and Ford won’t make nearly as many Cobra Jets. Oh, and the Cobra Jet won’t be street legal. So there’s that. But die-hard dragsters won’t care – getting a factory-prepped car that can tear up the quarter-mile will make those few who can snag one happy.

And if the initial reports prove true, this new pony will run.

Here’s my dilemma: Bought a 1983 5.0 Cougar for my wife as her “weekend” car, but the TBI was problematic and the seats were terribly uncomfortable. Dumped the Cougar, and bought a loaded 1985 F-150 with 5.0 and power everything, then sprayed it in Mustang Redfire Metallic red, but she wanted something more “sporty.”

So I traded the pickup for a 1971 Torino coupe with a 351W and 3 speed auto (pictured here).

  • SCE to AUX Nice proportions and pricing.The Alfa version has a terrible name and a dim future.
  • Matt Posky Absolutely, especially considering that the wealth gap widening to unprecedented levels. I'd go so far as to argue that most upper-level management is grossly overpaid. But companies will continue to spend their fortunes as they see fit and a lot of CEOs will be glad they got paid so much after the board inevitably decides to throw them under the bus. Corporate culture changes over the course of generations, not years.
  • Ajla -If the GLH is destined to be available only through Direct Connection then it is basically never going to exist.-The rumor is that the Compass will also be getting these power trains, which I think could be a big help to that vehicle. I also wouldn't be surprised to see a Jeep version(s) of the Hornalé soon.-The styling of the Hornet is similar to the Charger and Durango which is a little surprising since those vehicles will be gone soon and I thought they might go in a different direction. We'll see what the "eMuscle" car looks like tonight (my guess is a 4-Series Gran coupe with a '70 Charger mask).
