Not only do modern manual transmissions have smoother shifters that pair with more forgiving clutches, but many examples pack technologies designed to improve performance, boost efficiency and enhance the driving experience.
Engine stop-start technology has proliferated in automatic-transmission cars as automakers try to squeeze additional efficiency from internal combustion engines, but they’ve figured out how to bring the fuel-saving feature to stick-shift cars, too. In the Porsche 718 Cayman, for instance, the engine can shut off to save fuel when the car is stopped, the gear selector is in Neutral and the clutch pedal is released. Depress the clutch to get into gear and the engine restarts.
The Corvette, redesigned in 2014, underwent its most dramatic redesign in decades. But as radical as the new look was compared to previous Vettes, they made sure to keep essentials unchanged—a powerful V-8 and a manual. The new seven-speed manual transmission (an eight-speed automatic is optional) is one of the best hooked to any V8. And that’s true even for the top Z06 model.
