implying shift times matter
nice try bench racer.
That still doesn't account for the larger power loss through an automatic transmission, the heavier weight of automatic transmission (exception being CVTs), the worse fuel economy 9 times out of 10, and the slower acceleration times 9 times out of 10.

Don't get me wrong. I don't hate automatics completely. DCTs are the only acceptable automatics in cars.
Automatics are king in trucks for a reason though.

Power (SAE net): 205 bhp @ 5600 rpm

Lol the SR20DET did these numbers in the 90s, going up to 250 hp in the S15 with variable timing and a t28 turbo... and I'm sure countless other engines did even better in earlier eras

Again, assuming yours is the Redline (top trim/performace model/whatever) you gotta compare it to performance models too. Arguing that your car in top trim is faster than another car in base trim is silly.

yeah i can pop it in neutral in like literally 1/10 of a second in manual but in automatic you have to be standing perfectly still foot on brake bla bla bla. this goes with everything. so fucking annoying it thinks youre an idiot everytime. like if its in d and you let go of the brake it doesnt roll forward it stands in place???? everything feels counterintuitive. i tried liking automatic but i just couldnt

Maybe the experts in the thread can answer this.

I'm looking at buying a used Ferrari 360, and the only question is what kind of transmission I'll opt for. The manuals are rarer, and more expensive (anywhere from $10K-$15K, from what I understand). The F1's are a lot more common and cheaper, but I've heard they were rushed to market and may be prone to mechanical issues.

Which would you pick?

If you keep tracking a car it will give out sooner rather than later.

I see your point but not everything is made better by technology that makes the drivers job easier. I do prefer having things like electric starters and automatic timing control instead of hand crank to start or a timing stalk on the steering wheel, but having a manual transmission gives the driver greater control of the car that a slushbox cannot replicate without being an expensive and extremely complicated dual clutch auto. Even then I still can't stand the creep that autos have when you let off the brake. The only way I could own a car without a clutch pedal is if you could turn the creep off like you can on a Tesla.

Its all about the sensation and movements of changing gears. You feel the speed on a different level than an automatic, which does everything for you.
