With many exotic sports car companies phasing out the manual transmission, any rumor of revival is worth repeating. Do not get too excited–as it is just a rumor, but some say that the next-gen Porsche 911 GT3 RS could offer a manual transmission option.
Will the next Porsche 911 GT3 boast 3 glorious pedals?
The point of owning an exotic sports car is two-fold: To show it off and to drive the hell out of it. While the latest automated transmissions do shift seamlessly in milliseconds and prevent driver-induced damage, they lack that good old-fashioned hands-on driving experience we all lust for. There is just nothing like being in total control of your stable of horses while white knuckling around a steep embankment turn …or local grocery parking lot. It’s whatever.
