No touchscreen multi-media control system, no GPS, no 12 speaker surround sound stereo , no back up camera , no parking sensors, or a windshield rain sensor, no 8- way ( and heated ! ) adjustable seats, no paddle shifting , just a stick on the floor and an inconvenient clutch pedal , and wait ...what did someone just spend for this archaic hunk of metal ?!

Hey maybe some day our technologically-impared ( by current standards ) GTS might also sell for a comparable price ? Lol , not a snowball's chance in hell, but I also can't imagine we're going to see any " wave of the future" electric self-driving cars on the auction block with a bidding frenzy going on ..

I don't know why, but I have come to be "satisfied" with my 16 GT Sport Technology. Not sure what the reason is.

Same here ( and mine is a '13 GT Sport coupe ) For me it's because it has "adequate" technology for anything essential to enhance the the day to day driving functionality, but without an over-abundance of tech gizmos and which , IMO , would take away too much from the pleasure / experience of truly DRIVING this car, instead of it driving you ..like a Tesla, for example ; mind blowing fast car but otherwise it feels as if you're sitting in a sound proof computer lounge just mildly controlling where the car takes you without the slightest bit of effort .. What's the point of " driving " that , might as well get a chauffeur to do that you ..

there are many articles out showing that people want and pay for all the fancy electronics but when it comes down to it most don't know how to use them or worse yet don't even know they have them. i guess fancy electronics are the same to geeks as horsepower and beauty are to car guys/gals. thank God i'm not a geek and i agree the electronics in my 2015 GT is just the perfect amount. i also have a 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider and a big part of the beauty is the simplicity of it. very little in fancy electronics and even an aftermarket radio installed. Many auto reviewers blast the 4C for it's simplicity but they don't get it. It's all about the drive, the connection between driver and car and these Ipad gizmos on other cars just take from that experience
