Dear Mr. Mizuno,
You may not know me but I am a member of the internet forum North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club... What do you mean you've never heard of it? It's only one of the biggest automotive forums on the internet! Anyways, I was writing to complain to you directly about the decision to not offer the GTR with a manual transmission. You see, I enjoy the visceral feel of rowing my own gears so much that I will be looking at another car unless you change your mind. Yep, you just lost yourself a customer. Unless you're willing to make one for me custom, that is. As it sits, I would not consider your completely boring, sedated and mundane flappy paddle supercar killer as I require a manual transmission-equipped car that lets me feel one with machine as I heel toe and rev match every downshift perfectly and clip the apex of Oak Street and West Main Boulevard on the way to work. I request that you cease and desist your technical innovations and so called "progress" at once and revert back to the 1970s as I grew up in that era and consider anything introduced since then to be a step forward and two steps back. I trust that the manual model will be ready for 2015. Oh, and if you could give it a 2.0l N/A motor as well, that would be swell. Turbos just ruin cars. Thanks!
