Lotus

But it's a dumb question, Senor Manuel will never truly die.

Lotus, mazda probably. I wonder when porsche will make their PDK the only trans option.
>>
>>14240942
Mazda doesn't offer manual on the CX-3 or CX-9, and the CX-5 only has it for the base model (unless you want AWD lel).

At least it's on all their cars.

>>14240944
I think the Mustang will be the last manual car.
>>
>>14240957
Porsche seems to be still interested in making driver's cars so they'd last a while.
>>
>>14240937
They will never go away. Making a manual transmission is the cheapest option.
>>
>>14241022

Not when you need a clutch actuator for the adaptive computer-assisted emergency stop that will be mandatory by 2026.
>>
Are there any that don't anymore? Even Nissan still offers them.
>>

>Porsche seems to be still interested in making driver's cars

They're otw out at Porsche.
>>
>>14241105
Volvo (sadly, because I would totally buy a manual Cross Country as a sporty AWD DD)
>>
>>14241105
Mercedes.
>>
>>14240937
First will be the big companies, with probably Ford or GM offering the last sports car with a 6 speed.

Followed by small companies. Followed by third world econotrash (Tata, Lada, Hyundai) simply because a manual is cheaper and simpler.

But we'll be driving cars powered by electricity (either plug in with diesel generator or hydrogen) before that ever actually happens. In which case it'll likely still be the same order, but for a different reason.

>manual is cheaper

Manual is cheaper to develop but it doesn't make money.
>>
>>14241113
They admitted that removing the manual from the GT3 was a mistake.

Also, Cayman GT4.
>>
>>14241113
>removes manual option from their most driver oriented model the GT3
Dude what. That was their stripped-out track car built for numbers.
>>
I'm surprised no one mentioned BMW
>>
>>14241374
BMW is going to shit. Fast.
>>
>>14241309
Thing is it wasn't meant to be that when it came out. It's strayed too far from it's roots.

LADA

g-guys manual transmission will always exist r-right?
>>
>>14240937

Whichever one markets to poor people the most.
>>
The first one to guy will be Mitsubishi. Seeing as they stopped manufacturing performance cars and are leaning towards making more eco-friendly cars. Sad.
>>
>>14241486
Go*

Fucking autocorrect
>>
>>14241486
Volvo already took first place.

Mitsubishi offers manual on 6 out of 8 cars they are selling, at least here in Canada. That's better than most.
>>
>>14240937
I think as long as conventional automobiles are being produced manuals won't completely disappear
>>
>>14241098
>emergency stop
>caring if the car stalls
>>
>>14241462
I think combustion engines will go first
>>
>>14240937
They aren't going anywhere, people only buy an Auto when they are incapable of dealing with a real car.
>>
>>14242435
Manuals are becoming merely preference now. You have to consider this when autos are posting faster track times.
>>
>>14240937
Alfa Romeo
>>
>Not making a manualized Auto with Torque converter
Its all the fun of a manual without all the gayness of a oldschool clutch
>inb4 autos dont have clutches
Well whats a clutch pack then?
>>
>>14241098
And you can't actuate a mt clutch electronically...why again?
>>
>>14242584
4C didn't get one.
>>
>>14242590
>cancer the post
>>
>>14240937
Hyundai.
>>
>>14242611
have fun with that manual anon
>>
>>14242419
Wait, but electric cars don't have gearboxes at all, do they?
>>
>>14240937
BMW
>>
>>14240937
all cars will be electric

you don't even need gears nigga

only ONE gear
>>
>>14241135
I thought there were one or two models they still had manual available for? It's effectively dead in any case.
>>
>>14240937
Fiat or VW.
>>
>>14241113
>>14240957
Porsche probably has a strategy: make everything DCT - and then charge double for a manual. The purists will fall for it.
>>
>>14241121
Which is a shame because Volvo's current automatics are really behind on everyone else's.

>>14241135
>A, CLA, GLA
>B
>C
>lease-spec E
All offer manuals - and I'd bet you Mercedes could make a good bit of money if they offered a manual on the GT S for a 20-30K premium.
>>
>>14242596
Stupidest decision they made. Had the 4C been a manual, it would've sold at least 20 to 50% better - especially given the subpar performance of the DCT.

Also, tuners are running into reliability issues if they add a little power to the 1.8T engine. I'd bet Alfa is having lots of warranty claims on that DCT, even untuned ones. The entire unit just sounds fragile and underwhelming.
>>
Lexus and Infiniti quit offering manuals. Sucks because the rc-f and the q60 are so pretty.

Guess I'll just stay in my old shitboxes.
>>
>>14242538
Oh look someone else who can't tell a DCT from an Auto.
>>
Dacia or some other 3rd world country car maker that can't justify pushing dual clutch on their customers
>>
>>14242719
I saw a guy do an mr2 electric swap and he kept the manuel transmission in.
>>
Chevy because corvette will always be made for manual
>>
>>14243707
I got to drive a geo metro that was electric swapped that still has the manual trans too. It's weird being able to stop and start with using the clutch.
>>
>>14243757
Without* using the clutch.
>>
How are american import laws with NAFTA cars? A lot of manual options here in tacoland
