I was told the ST will only be a 6-speed manual. To me, that seems fair.

Yeah, it was from the February issue of Auto Express. Ford technical specialist Paul Wijgaerts said they have an ST with the dual clutch automatic, but it's not ready yet. They're certainly working on it though.

I will likely go for one anyways if it handles and drives the way expected I mean I'm sure it will be a blast don't get me wrong both my cars are stick including my summer car (4 speed ST-10/3:73) once I test drive I know I'll be instantly hooked.. just thought a nice shifting auto would work well in this car and worth a decision.

that would be a sexy fusion you can get a fusion in a stick but its base model no options and they are rare

I'd much prefer orange over yellow and think they had it down perfect with the first gen ST.[/QUOTE]

agree orange over yellow hands down, something that you will only be able to decide outdoors under natural light but color is a non-issue for me. I've already decided that my ST will be black - sinister yet sexy !!!

Seriously? You'll lose all respect?
How about you just not buy an auto? :P
And why don't you lose respect for it now when it WILL have an automatic later on, as stated?

yes if you want a performance car buy a stick thats how it has always been people who dont know the cars will look into the window at one in walmart and say thats not a performance car its got a automatic how do i know because its what i do, go try to find a ford gt or any true performance car (thats not a hardcore drag car) and it will be a stick not a automatic. It comes from people like me who acually truely enjoy driving a car will want a stick
