Here's my plan IF I were to buy a 2011 GT.
Buy the base model with man trans
, Brembo package, 3.73 gears...no other options. The cheapest way to start and to retain as much money as I can. I would then buy takeoff leather and install it myself...as I like leather and it can no longer be bought a la carte.
A much smarter option would be to buy a 2011 GT used, when they are about two years old.
