They are missing my sale and thousands of others not having a computer automated manual option, as this has become the norm in the modern automotive world, and Ford wants to sale cars. Back in the day, when the options were hydromatic auto or manual, yes they would offer manual only. But technology is to the point that computer automated manuals are now in the mainstream, not just high end cars. From the article, I remember they acknowledged the problems with the initial launch of the DCT on the 2012 Focus, and that was something they wanted to avoid on the ST, thus it was going to be a year or so before the computer automated manual would be available. But also acknowledging it is the new norm/expectation and they would loose sales if they didn't get it out there and get it right.
even so... if the Boss 302 (which i look at the ST as the Boss 302 of the Focus line up) doesn't have an optional automatic, it's highly unlikely IMO the ST will get one, not to mention the GT500. hell, Ford didn't even offer an automatic on the ZX4 ST and it wasn't as near as performance oriented as its SVT predecessor or its ST successor..
