Automatic transmissions are the future. Manuals will diminish slowly and the ones kept around will basically be for the novelty of having one. Don’t get me wrong, I love rowing through my gears
There was never a question of whats faster, the point is what is more enjoyable to the consumer... If Subaru does away with the MT and goes electric assist, I'm out, and the only "new" Subaru for me will be a clean 03' wrx next year.
I sincerely hope they revamp the motor in the sti, make 40-50 more hp/tq, give it direct injection, and get at least 27hwy mpg. If they do, I'll be the first to buy a new sti in March 2018/2019 depending on when they come out. :tup:
