    • Manual transmission option possible for 2020 Ford Mustang GT500 if there is consumer demand

      A funny thing happens when enthusiasts clamor for a manual transmission when there is a DCT or automatic. They do not buy it. Well, at least not in enough numbers to make it financially rewarding for the manufacturer.


      There are exceptions but manual only enthusiast cars basically no longer exist. The GT350 was manual only and clearly targeted a certain audience as did the Viper which is no longer in production.

      There were enough Porsche enthusiasts upset by the GT3 going to PDK only that Porsche brought the manual option back with the 991.2 generation.

      Want a GT500 with a manual? Well, you better make a good business case for Ford and it can happen.
