New Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Inbound To Rival COPO Camaro1
The Chevrolet COPO Camaro will have some real competition on the drag strip this year after Ford Authority reported on Wednesday that a new Mustang Cobra Jet is inbound.
The announcement coincides with the Mustang Cobra Jet’s 50th anniversary; the first car came to market in 1968. Ford was light on specifications but said the Mustang Cobra Jet will be based on the 2018 Mustang. The light details include a unique four-link suspension with a 9-inch solid rear axle from Strange Engineering, Racetech FIA seats, an NHRA-certified roll cage, and a special coil-over suspension designed especially for drag racing.
Power will come from a supercharged 5.2-liter Coyote V8 engine with an undisclosed amount of horsepower. The COPO Camaro, meanwhile, can be had with a supercharged 5.7-liter V8, naturally-aspirated 7.0-liter V8 and an LT-based, direct-injected 6.2-liter V8 engine. The engines are backed by a race-prepped Turbo 400 three-speed automatic transmission.
Production will be limited to 68 Cobra Jets, a nod to the car’s introductory year, and like the COPO Camaro, they will not be street legal.

I am going to ask this question for the last time!
Why does a GM focused website have articles about a non GM car or truck?
I come to this site to read about what is going on with GM!!! I want to know what GM is doing!
I do not care about what other makes are doing and if I wanted to know I would go to those sites to find out that news.
These types of articles should be removed from this site and should not be allowed going forward. Or In my opinion this website should change its name to something else.
GM Authority should be just that and nothing else!
