Significant changes for 1999 improved this muscle car's ride, handling, and braking. The V6 feels sprightlier, but is still fairly anemic at high revs. The V8 is much stronger and more in character with the car. Unfortunately, only the uplevel Cobra version gets an independent rear suspension. The manual transmission feels neither slick nor sporty.
