My $.02 is that it didn't look aggressive enough for GT buyers, and no auto transmission probably eliminated 2/3 (or more) of potential buyers.
The 2013 Legacy added a slightly more aggressive look which might have been better accepted by the sporty crowd. Maybe the GT just wasn't differentiated enough from the vanilla Legacy to make it worth the extra investment.
