No offense to Gunkk, but if a modern convertible truly scratched the itch that a Cobra was sought to scratch, it certainly was not meant to be. I can only speak for myself, but a Cobra gives me a feeling no other car (and certainly no modern car) can give.

Your situation seems a lot like mine:

Wants to drive it more than work on it.... check.
Knows that a good one is $60-70k.... check.
Wants the bucket list cobra driving experience.... check.

Then I found the 650 Ft-Lb & 650 HP convertible of my dreams. It has all the noise and terror of a 427 cobra without the high probability of death 3 seconds after you mash it. Comes with all the creature comforts too.

When you giggle like a schoolgirl on the test drive like I did, you know you've found the right car. Good luck.
