I'm not 100% sure if they will or will not, but the Shelby GT 500 is a true enthusiast muscle car and traditionally muscle cars that are tailored for power and speed are matted with a manual transmission only!!!

Thank you kids are gone and we want to look at Mustang convertible. I wanted GT500 wife can't drive manual guess we'll need to look at GT

The GT has plenty of power and is a mini rocket in my opinion ( I was running a Ford store when the new GT mustang came out ) the GT 500 would only be for the enthusiast, collector, or racer hence the manual transmission .. You will be extremely happy with the GT 5.0 . Not to mention the price difference between a loaded GT and a loaded Shelby GT 500 is around 12,000+ !

so what im seeing an hearing is that its not impossible for it to be an automatic car. what if your willing to put extra money in to make an automatic car?

I heard there are plans to put an automatic in the Shelby GT500. They should. Many muscle cars had automatic transmissions. The 3-speed TorqueFlite in the 60's mopars shifted as fast as the manual, maybe faster. You could even get a mighty 426 Hemi with automatic. Today's 6 and 7 speed automatics make fine muscle car trannies..
