Aren't they all full automatics now with a manual being available on the Vantage?

I believe so and I don't have an issue with auto as long as there is a proper twin/dual clutch gearbox. It's 2018 and manufacturers like AM still think it's acceptable to stick these dated slushboxes in their entire line of cars that average north of 200k MSRP...

I was hoping when they decided to put merc motors and electronics in their new models that they would also source the gearboxes from them as well. The new Vantage and AMG GT-S are basically siblings at this point but the AMG can be had for less money and with a proper gearbox. It makes no sense.

The only way I would buy the AM is with a manual which just isn't an option for me with my daily driving around west LA and my weekend canyon car will always have a Porsche badge

Yeah if I get an Aston it will have to be a manual too.

I'm probably in the minority, but I like the looks of the new one better.

Do you guys think they'll ever do a Gen II Vanquish manual transmission upgrade program like they did with Gen I?

Good rendering, but they left on the 991.2 door handles:-)

The whole rear lower fascia looks like it was rendered by a drunk eight year old.

I think the styling on AM cars is great. The only thing that can ruin it for me is if I see a Kardashian driving one.
