Re: 2011 Shelby GT350 - The Last One?
Shelbys aren't about "raw performance". If they were, they'd be configured like the Boss 302 - no frills (meaning less weight - kinda), track key, etc, and they wouldn't be available as convertibles.
An automatic transmission means they'll be able to sell more of that model to "regular people". I took a friends truck to the car wash the other day, and while waiting for it to come out the other side, I witnessed a wash monkey ask the owner of a car to drive it to the drying area because it had a manual trans.
This is what's happening to American youth - they're being dumbed down, and softened by creature comforts.
