    Doubtful due to the power levels.

    Our 350’s might just be the last manual Shelby’s.

    Yup. Both hands on the wheel with this one. Not even a shifter to rest your right hand on. I don’t think cruising and hold onto a knob ( insert joke here ) will have the same desired effect as a shifter would.

    The ZR1 is 755hp and comes in a stick, as does the Hellcat at 717, so that argument is a little invalid.

    A Youtuber, Speed Phenom, interview a Ford exec and he stated the GT500 will only be available with a DTC. He said Ford did this because they feel the DTC is the best performance transmission and they wanted the best performance in the GT500. Personally, I would want a manual so you feel more connected to the car. Turning a knob just doesn't seem right.

    If Ford puts a manual in it, I will consider it. I'm not going to "Clap for Tinkerbell."

    Thanks for posting, but Carl Widmann is delusional. If they were “real tight with the Mustang crowd," and “... always listen to what our customers want...,” then a manual would’ve be released. Ford certainly didn’t have any problems selling GT500s (2007-20014), or the GT350. It’s all about milliseconds.

    I guess we’ll wait as see, but, hey, Mr. Widmann, I want a manuel. Are you listening?
