Largest cars that have standard transmission?

I'm wondering what are the biggest, roomiest cars that you can find that are standard shift? I noticed that most of the time they are little cars, and/or 2-doors. I'm not a fan of either, and was wondering if there are some mid-size sedans that you can get with a standard-transmission, or even better, any cars around the size of the Intrepid that are stick?

Last night I was driving my friends stick-shift Tercel, and thought it was fun (I didn't even stall it!). The thing is, I don't like small cars like that. I like being able to fit four of my 6ft teenage friends in the backseat, and a few coolers in the trunk .

Thanks for any feedback!

It's an option on the Pontiac G8 GXP (6 speed auto is standard, 6 speed manual optional).
3 and 5 series BMWs offer a manual.
The Audi A4 has an optional 6 speed manual.
The mazda 6 has a 6 speed manual as an option.
The Nissan Altima offers a 6 speed manual as well.

Hmm, I would really have to consider a mazda 6. They're great cars, and they look pretty sick. I wouldn't be able to afford the others, and I don't know if I'd want an Altima. I've driven one before during my first job at a car dealership, and I really liked it. Thanks for the help!

I don't know about the 6 but the Altima offers the stick shift with the V-6 that would be lots of fun. The Honda Accord offers a stick shift too

Or you could get a Challenger R/T or SRT

Thanks for the suggestions guys! I think I'm pretty much torn between a Charger or a Mazda 6 now (although I would love a Challenger!). I could probably find a Mazda 6 for cheaper since they started making them in 03, plus they are cheaper new than the Chargers.

I have a good chunk of money saved up, but I start college next year and I know that money will be gone pretty quickly. Hopefully the trepid doesn't decide to crap out on me soon

You can probably get full size trucks with manual transmissions that would rival the Intrepid for interior space... plus you'd have a cargo bed for extra hauling...
