    Well the major difference is the Cobra had a traditional trans and engine hook up while the C5 had a engine, torque tube, and transaxle between the rear tires. That is probably why the Vette had the different splines vs the Cobra.

    It depends on what it is you want to do with the car. If you want to build it up yourself, I think that a base Corvette is a good deal.

    If you want a bad ass car out of the box, Z06 all the way.

    Jay,

    We are talking about the feel of the car as a whole. Raw, correct?

    The c5z, although more balanced, was much better connected to the road and driver than a Cobra. The cobra was “clunkier” but not rawer.

    Stock for stock is the only way to properly compare. Cobra did have bang for the buck and could be made as fast or faster than the vette. But it also took more mods to make faster.

    Both cars were absolutely awesome, I will say that. To this day, not buying a Cobra back in 04 is one of my biggest regrets (car wise).

    Still bros. ;)
