I just want to plug the manual transmission, you know the kind with three pedals. I know the computer can shift faster than me, I know I can put it in sport mode and control the gears, I know the acceleration on paper is faster (but not much) and yes when driving in stop and go freeway traffic the auto is nice. But I buy a sports car for sport. When I take a sports car out on a canyon road, it is just so so satisfying to row the gears with a real manual transmission, blipping the throttle on down shifts, heal and toeing when necessary, holding the gear I want at high rev into a series of corners and then exploding out the end with instant power...you just can't get the same feeling with the two pedal cars. It still says something about the brand to offer the manual to the folks, it says that yes, sport is important to the brand because driving is important, its not just about point A to point B. Please save the manual.
