If you absolute max that u can spend on a car then:

Who's Paying?
1.) If parents or other than you then get the GT by finding an 11GT. Will be within a stone throw of $22k

2.) If you're paying then get the 2010GT. Has the look of 2011+ minus the motor but seeing that your young you may very well have the fastest car there anyhow. Has a very very nice sounding engine note and engine bolt on engine mods will have a slightly higher effect than on a V6.

3.) if you're not caring about speed then 2013 V6 or just about any V6 really.
My parents are matching the price of the car, and will give me a couple years to do it. They havent told me about insurance, so I get very puzzled when you mention insurance rates.
I KNOW Y'ALL ARE GOING TO YELL AT ME BUT.... Automatic or Manual?

Automatic or manual, that depends. Do you have one arm, if so a manual wouldn't be the best idea because you would have to take your only hand off the steering wheel and shift the transmission. Of course unless you had a prosthetic arm.

Will you be driving in rural or urban areas? Do you do a lot of stop and go traffic ? Do you want to throw that b otch in drive and leave your hand on your monthly babes inner thigh, then auto may be your bag. Are you auto track racing? There really isnt any right or wrong answer, its more of a personal preference.

Lmao @ monthly babes inner thigh! But I agree with kona it's all personal preference a lot of people are gonna say get a stick but there not gonna do the shifting for u so u decide what would work best for ur driving style/commute/preference!

Is say go for the manual... They're a dying breed, and it's gonna be a thing of the past eventually... Plus ur gonna get a lot of cool points amongst your peers since it is manual... My 1st car was a manual, and it was cool experience points starting with a manual

And if it's your first car don't get something really fast. If I would have started out with my mustang which only has 270 horsepower and 315 lb-ft of torque, I would have killed myself.

I live in NJ, the only reason my ******* isn't completely caved in from the insurance rates here is because I have USAA, am over 25, 0 points and married. And I still pay $200/mo for 3 vehicles.

And lol, my first car was not a fast car but I got my first Mustang, a 91GT with mods, at 19 years old and nearly DID kill myself on multiple occasions.

The ability to drive a stick would come in handy in case you ever need to drive some other car that was manual.

9 of 11 of my cars I've owned are manual. Not a big deal after a while

Nope, and the new 6 speed autos in those 5.0s are amazing. Gone are the days of the "slushbox" (that ended with the 4R) but there is something to be said about banging gears. All down to personal preference for a street car nowadays. Old guy at one of the tracks around here showed up with a brand new 5.0 auto last season and ran mid 12s all day.

If I was the parent in this situation though it would be a new V6 manual trans.

1- Its cheaper and less insurance and PLENTY fast for kid new to driving

2- Brand new=warranty

3- I will for damn sure make my kid learn to drive stick when she turns 16 and gets her permit. Well if they still make stick shifts in 12 years... Will also keep the majority of other high schoolers from asking to drive it if its something nice because they won't be able to.

But as I said before for someone who seems to know nothing about these cars and is brand new to driving. I still say go look into a sports sedan.

I have an auto because I'm not a fan of changing the gears. I would rather put it in drive and be done with it. But that's just me

Since we are on the subject of auto's, I shifted my auto from S back to D while driving today ( I've done it before) and thought I smelt something burning, and I only lasted for a few seconds, and I had the AC on, so I assumed it was that, any guesses, transmission still is one, but I didn't try S again...

Thanks very much bro. Those calipers I had painted myself with the help my mechanic friend. I used the high heat brake caliper paint. Make sure you put primer on them first then apply the actual paint. Lol. I took my brake calipers completely off. The brake lines had to be bled dry. I wasn't taking a chance of getting red overspray on my ride. Lmao.

I'm gonna have this airbrushed under the hood onto my radiator cover but less the snake. No snake but the Ford emblem with the pony replacing the snake.

I got an auto because my fiancé (now married) wanted me to. She paid the $1,500 dollar difference (so note autos cost $1,500 more). I still wish I had a manual sometimes. But. I don't miss gears. I don't grind gears. I won't have to replace my clutch early due to trying to learn how to drive stick. Also. My wife has been able to drive me home several times when I shouldn't have been driving. It's got its pros and cons. These new auto are very impressive. A little sluggish (due to throttle response) when very first getting on it. Get a tune. And you feel like your driving a new car. It's cray cray (Louisiana term).
