Actually Subaru made a hand controls (on steering wheel) STI for a kid, it was in an issue of Subiesport (i'm too tired to get it, i have 'em all).

I have no issue w/ retrofitting. But, there is no reason for a sports car to have an automatic. Sorry. I know F1 and Rally use dog or dual clutch sequential gearboxes (granted Rally has a manual too if the dog dies). But, it just takes away everything that is holy about driving.

Oh and the only really pure cars are the Elise, Exige, Ariel, etc etc.
