According to the folks at Popular Hot Rodding the Ford Racing Mustang Cobra Jet turn-key racecar program will continue with the 2015 Mustang model year platform.

When Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing was asked about the Cobra Jet he responded that “Mustang and Cobra Jet are inseparable!” leading us to believe no other vehicle will carry the Cobra Jet name.

Adding to that, Jesse Kershaw, Ford Racing’s division of Drag Racing Parts and Competition Manager, was quoted as saying, “Our goals remain the same for next year as they are every year, produce a competitive product at a price that is a value for the racer,” Kershaw said. “We want to ensure this program is here to stay.”

The 2015 Mustang Cobra Jet should follow suit with previous years as Ford Racing offered 50 models on a first come first serve basis ordered through Ford dealerships across the country. Expect to see the 5.0-liter Coyote motor in naturally aspirated form under the hood along with similar features found on the 2014 Cobra Jet including a supercharger option.
