    It is because I will never own an automatic mustang. Those two words together are enough to make me cringe.
    Pretty sad that straight line performance has dictated the transmission option in such an iconic awesome car. Shame on you ford, your decision to not give the consumer the decision is just asinine!

    I hear ya and over on the Hellcat.org forum same gripe. The high horsepower cars such as the Demon and Redeye do not offer the manual either. And the new Corvette C8 with xxxx HP won’t as well. You have to wonder is the new 500 a 800hp set up? And the story from the Mopar side is the Manual Trans won’t handle the power.

    This just makes me appreciate my 350 even more. I buy cars for the driving experience period. There's always going to be something/somebody faster than you, especially if you actually track your cars. So why chase numbers and imaginary track times in an anti-septic driving experience? I could not care less about how many milliseconds a DCT trans will save me when I go get a coffee at 6am on a Saturday morning and I'm the only car on the back roads. Or when I leave work early on a Thursday to go open lapping at my home track for a few hours. What I do care about is how much fun I have with the car and max fun comes with a manual trans, turning off all the nannies, heel toeing my down shifts and getting her ass out in the corners lol. Just my .02 cents.

    I've heard, but can't verify, automatics are cleaner from an emissions standpoint. If so, that would make certification simpler and less costly for manufacturers.

    The GT4 Mustangs that Kohr Motorsports have a Holinger paddle shift trans in them not sure if there a DCT trans but they do well on the road course.

    Exactly.

    I got smoked at a light by a Tesla Model S a few weeks ago. A sterile, range limited, silent, point-and-shoot Tesla Model S.

    45 years ago I had a man tell me my 66 Mustang "sure is loud." I said, "Yeah, sounds great, doesn't it?"

    To each his own. Me, I want a stick.

    As someone who lived in Europe for years and drove a stick, I'd love this option. Hope it happens.

    I'm mot a pessimist but obviously no one knows if it will happen but I just don't see it ever happening. The manual is on the verge of totally being gone on american cars. Hope I'm wrong.

    Perhaps Ford will note that Camaro and Corvette have manuals available.
