Next-gen Ford Cobra Jet development underway, but will it be a Mustang?

Ford Racing Mustang Cobra Jet

Ford might be stepping away from the NHRA, but it isn’t abandoning drag racing altogether. Hot Rod says that Ford confirmed a next-gen Cobra Jet factory drag racer is in the works, but the report also speculates that a new Cobra Jet could switch away from the Mustang nameplate.

Even though talk of a new Cobra Jet coincides with the all-new 2015 Mustang, the lack of confirmation for the dragster’s platform leaves Hot Rod to guess that the car might switch to another platform – specifically a front-drive-based, unibody car like the Fusion or Taurus. We’d hate to think of a world with a NASCAR-ized dragster from Ford Racing, but it’s also highly unlikely that the Mustang Cobra Jet would step away from its quarter-mile rivals like the Chevy COPO Camaro and Dodge Challenger Drag Pak.
