The manual gearbox is being phased out by many automakers–including exotic sports car makers. The Porsche 911 997 GT3 could be the last Porsche with a manual gearbox.

The next generation of the Porsche GT3 appeared in Geneva this year sporting everything but the manual option.
The next gen Porsche took center stage at the Geneva Motor Show this year and evoked rumblings of the missing manual.
