  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: You Can Buy a Brand-New 2000 Ford Mustang Cobra R Right Now

Recommended Posts

-Long before the GT350R became a track-day superstar, the ultimate modern Ford Mustang you could buy was the 2000 Cobra R. With only 300 ever built, the cars became instant collectibles, and some owners hid them away from the public in the hopes they’d appreciate. This is one such Cobra R, with fewer than 85 miles on the clock and an interior still covered in plastic from the factory.


Texas dealer BJ Motors has it listed for sale on eBay with an asking price of $79,995, which is nearly $26,000 more than the Cobra R’s 2000 list price of $55,845 but only $1800 more when adjusting for inflation. While most Mustangs of this era aren’t even remotely collectible, the Cobra R easily qualifies as an exception. Besides being rare, the Cobra R was the most track-focused Mustang since the original Shelby GT350.




Its 5.4-liter V-8 made 385 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque, and the car had independent rear suspension, a race-ready fuel cell, and a stripped-out interior. You could argue that in 2000, the Cobra R was a more significant leap ahead for the Mustang than the GT350R is today. The Cobra R’s only drawbacks were really its high price and the fact that Ford didn’t build many.




If you missed the chance to buy one in 2000, this is as close as you’ll get today. If you’re a collector, you might want to jump on this one, because it’s rare these cars come up for sale at all, let alone in virtually new condition. Of course, using it will kill its time-capsule status, but given the low premium with inflation, we’d still say it’s worth it.
