From Blue Oval News today:

Ford Motor Company has stopped production of the 2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra
due to quality concerns. The Cobra was first plagued with quality
problems when the 1999 model was recalled over engine concerns after an
article was published by BlueOvalNews. The 2000 model year was
canceled, but the 2001 and 2002 Cobra models have been generally trouble
free.

Sources at the Dearborn Assembly Plant (DAP), home of the Mustang, have told
BlueOvalNews that Ford has been experiencing problems with the
Cobra's 4.6L supercharged engine.

Both Ford Motor Company and Dearborn have CONFIRMED that all 2003 Mustang
SVT Cobra production has stopped. All Cobras currently made will be released
and shipped to consumers after being held at Dearborn since 21 October 2002.

Ford will try and resume Cobra production on or about 15 November 2002.
Sources at Dearborn Assembly are reporting that some if not all 2003 Cobra
production will be lost - Ford Motor Company refutes that by stating there
will not be a loss of production.

Really too bad. You have to love 390 HP cars, especially when they cost less than $35,000! Wouldn't own one, but I admired them. Too bad.

even for a $35k car. Unlike BMW keep selling the M3 with its known engine problem. Oh well...
